Quick, easy, and refreshing. Use any flavor ice cream. If you use sherbet or sorbet, it can be a very low-fat dessert.

What a delicious quick dessert to make. I used Cherry Icecream with whole cherries in it and this cake was a hit!! I'm going to make Raspberry Sorbet in my icecream maker next time and try a raspberry version. Yummy!!! Read More

So I took some liberties but stayed true to the concept (kinda). I decided to use the vanilla creme cake and purchased Blue Bell vanilla ice cream (boy am I glad it was on sale so good!). I cut the pound cake into three layers. Layered with cake ice cream cake ice cream and last layer of cake. Froze to firm up the ice cream. Then I spread cool whip like icing all over cake and added decorations (was my daughter's birthday cake). EVERYONE not only loved it but were highly impressed that I'd made it! The cool whip hide the fact that it looked messy due to my imperfect technique (first time doing something like this). It came out so delicious and easy!! Next time I'll try the chocolate creme cake and rocky road ice cream. The possibilities are endless! Read More

Great recipe! As suggested by other reviewers I sliced the angel food cake with a serrated knife and then Just pick your favorite ice cream and toppings and go crazy! Do prepare the day before and put on the freezer take it out when you serve dinner or about a an hour before you need to serve it. I ve made this three (3) times and friends keep asking me to make more! You can make a sauce to complement the ice cream you used if you want to be fancy and/or the occasion demands it (use chocolate syrup for kids!). Last time (for a friend s 40th) I used strawberry sauce (laced with wine) to soak the cake it was really nice. Thank you! I don t have to bake cakes anymore!!!!! Read More

Today was my daughter Ashley's birthday and she loves angel food cake. As much as I love cooking that's how much I loathe baking which was one of the reasons this recipe caught my eye. I'm sure both of my Oma's are looking down in despair! Anyway like others I changed it up a bit. Instead of breaking up the cake I split it put the ice cream on the bottom layer topped it and glazed it with "Tunisianswife's chocolate glaze on this site. This was a great start Susan and we all (especially Ash) thank you for simple but delicious submission! Read More

This is delicious! I just made it for a birthday cake and used strawberry ice cream and added confetti sprinkles to the batter for a festive look. I did make a modification however--instead of layering I just mixed the angel food chunks in with the ice cream. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I sliced the angel food cake into three layers and used vanilla ice cream to construct the dessert on a plate. I froze overnight and then applied a layer of raspberry sherbet - kind of like a (raspberry) creamsicle. Served with a simple raspberry sauce everyone loved it! Read More
