School is almost out, 10 days to be exact here in Miami, and that means it's time to plan our end of school celebration. This year, my friend will be hosting a pool party and I will be bringing dessert. I knew I had to come up with a super fun dessert option for the kids and there is no dessert more fun than ice cream! Ice Cream cake to be exact!!!
Banana Split Ice Cream Cake
I decided to do a quick test run beforehand to make sure I created ice cream cakes the kids would love. First step was to make a stop at my local Walmart Neighborhood Market and stock-up on the new Blue Bunny ice cream flavors. I picked Homemade Vanilla, Pistachio Almond, Butter Pecan and Banana Split!

I also picked up a couple more essentials for my cakes: whipped cream, Smuckers caramel topping, butter pound cakes and maraschino cherries! I am super overwhelmed with end of the year activities at school so I took a couple shortcuts with my cakes. I like easy recipes and there is no easier recipe than my Banana Split Ice Cream Cake!

Place a plastic top on your loaf pan and place the cake in a resealable bag. Put in freezer for 2 hours to set. Putting ice cream cakes in a resealable bag helps them maintain their freshness. In a resealable bag, the cake will keep up to one week.

When ready to serve, remove the cake from the freezer and run a warm knife around the edges to loosen the cake. Then, turn onto a plate.

Top your cake with whipped cream. I only add whipped cream to the top but you could frost the cake with whipped cream as well!
