Happy Wednesday! I’ve got a super fun Waffeletten Ice Cream Cake recipe to share with you today. My reasons to whip up an ice cream cake were many…

  • To celebrate my kids first day back to school (2nd & 5th grade)
  • To celebrate Bahlsen North America’s 125th Anniversary “Let the Good Times Roll” birthday party.
  • To use the iconic & delicious Waffeletten chocolate dipped cookies in a creative way.
  • To test my skills at making an ice cream cake.
  • To qualify as an entrant to win an exclusive opportunity to win tuition to a 3-day Bleu Ribbon Kitchen workshop from the legendary Le Cordon Bleu.
  • Because ice cream cakes are delicious!!

Now let’s check out this cake…

Some of you might all ready be in love with these cookies. Others are asking what are Waffeletten’s anyway? Well….

They are gorgeous European biscuits, descending from a family run company with German roots. They are tasty on their own & in an ice cream cake…a bit of everyday luxury for everyone.

These cookies begin with a wafer as crunchy & golden as an irresistible Belgian waffle. It’s rolled into fine crisp layers & then dipped into the richest European dark chocolate. The delicious debate? Which end to bite first!

The folks at Bahlsen must know that I adore gifts that come in robin’s egg blue boxes ~ see the cake plate in the photos? It was a gift from them directly from Tiffany & Co. I loved this cake stand the moment I pulled the white ribbon.

What makes this ice cream cake extra special. Well it’s simple to prepare, no baking required, the perfect treat for any time of the year.

It’s got delightful layers of chocolate & vanilla ice cream. A layer of crushed Waffletten cookies, a layer of hot fudge sauce, a layer of frozen raspberries. The crowning glory is Waffletten cookies standing proud, pillows of delicately sweetened whipped cream (with sprinkles of course) ~ and birthday candles!

This is the first ice cream cake I’ve ever prepared & I’m impressed with how easy it is.

You are sure to get ohhh’s and ahhhh’s when you serve it. My kids were overjoyed when they came home from school & opened the freezer door. They were even more thrilled when they tasted it.

The Waffeletten cookies make this extra special. A little crunch is always fun with creamy ice cream. My daughter had been begging me for days to open my boxes of dark & milk chocolate Waffelettens.

Finally she got her wish.

  1. What a great photo shoot to capture how fun this cake is! Pinned! Love the blue backdrop and love the color and how bold and striking it is. I want this cake!

    And I hope your kids’ first days back were good ones!!

    1. Thanks Averie! It was fun to bring out the blue board ~ goes well with the cake & Waffeletten packaging….YES the kiddos are having a great Back to School time 🙂

  2. You mention 3 layers but only 2 tubs of ice cream – are you supposed to split the second tub and use half of it for each the 2nd and 3rd layer?

  3. I love Ice Cream Cakes! They taste so delicious and your Ice Cream layer cake recipe is awesome. I like the design and how wonderful it looks. You did a great job.
