Hey folks, it’s Jackie from TheSeasideBaker.com back again with another fun and simple recipe. I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but around here it is getting hot!
Just the thought of standing around in my itty bitty kitchen with the oven on makes me sweat, so we are now focusing on No-Bake Desserts. More specifically, ice cream desserts! (Be sure to also check out Princess Pinky Girl’s No Bake Ice Cream Sandwich Cake – this is always a favorite with her family and I cannot wait to give it a try too!

While a decadent slice of chocolate cake is perfect on most days, when it is close to 90 degrees outside I crave something light and cold like ice cream!
You can pretty much use any type of ice cream for this recipe. We used Strawberry and Chocolate Fudge Brownie.
Our ice cream choices are always divided in our family of five, which is why we always seem to end up with Neapolitan to make everyone happy. The strawberry and chocolate ice cream flavors combined with the buttery pound cake layers certainly did not disappoint!
The ice cream sundae toppings were the “icing on the cake.” They were fun, colorful, and of course delicious. I mean who doesn’t love thick chocolate hot fudge and sprinkles!?!
This recipe is so easy that even kids can make it.
Simply slice the pound cake in 3 pieces horizontally and let them go to town adding the ice cream and toppings. Then, use this opportunity to teach your kids about cleaning up (I can almost guarantee you don’t want to be picking up all of those sprinkles on the floor).
Bam, not only do you have happy kids, a fun dessert, but you have also turned it into a life lesson. Triple win!
This No-Bake Ice Cream Cake is the perfect dessert to serve at your next party, or just a fun way to finish off the evening with the family.
