Dreamy Ice Cream Cookie Dough Cake

How many of you crave cookie dough? WE SURE DO!

That’s why we created a cookie dough cake!  It’s an ice cream cake with scrumptious vanilla cake layers and a massive layer of homemade edible  cookie dough . This cake is a cookie dough lovers dream!

Plus, it’s easy to make!

Simply make a vanilla cake mix according to the directions on the back of the box. We added an extra tbsp of vanilla to really get the cake tasting similar to cookie dough. Then, bake the cake in two 8-inch circle pans. Level off any dome that may have occurred during baking. Leveling will help when it comes to stacking the ice cream cake.

While the cake is baking it’s time to make the best part:

We have the recipe for our edible cookie dough right here. It’s super simple, just sugar, butter, flour, and of course chocolate chips!

The best edible cookie dough!

While the cakes are baking, line one tall 8-inch circle pan with parchment paper. You really want to make sure the parchment paper is all over the pan. (This will help when removing the ice cream cake).

Once the cakes have baked, let them cool down completely.  While the cakes cool, take out the cookie dough ice cream from the freezer to let it soften.

Once the cakes have cooled and ice cream is softened it’s time to assemble the cookie dough cake!

Start by placing one of the cooled cake halves into the parchment-lined pan.

Then smooth the edible cookie dough all over the vanilla cake layer.

Next, take the cookie dough ice cream and smooth that on top of the cookie dough. (We used a spatula and our hands for this part to make sure the ice cream was even.)

Then top it off with the other cake half. Place the cake in the freezer for at least two hours so it can freeze together. It helps to cover the top of the cake with saran wrap, to keep the layers fresh.

While the cake is in the freezer you can make the whipped icing. It’s a super easy recipe!  All you need to do is whip the heavy cream on high until soft peaks form, then we whip in some vanilla extract. Once that mixture is combined slowly stir in the powdered sugar.

Then ice your cookie dough cake!
