Ice Cream Cake for $1.99 using the Festive Freebies!

CaptureIF you picked up your FESTIVE FREEBIES from Price Chopper in the past couple days…

You can make this cake!

Elizabeth used 1 1/2 cups of vanilla orange seltzer instead of soda and Pillsbury Classic white cake mix.  She also picked up the FREE Cool Whip and Friendly’s Orange Creme Swirl Ice Cream ($1.99).

She made the cake last night in two 8-inch square pans so it would cool through.  You only need one square for the ice cream cake. The other half can be made into cake pops.

  1. After the cake cools slice across like a huge sandwich. 
  2. Soften the ice cream a bit and spread in between.
  3. Thaw Cool Whip and frost the cake with it.
  4. Stick the cake back the freezer until you’re ready to serve.

This is also one of those “Science does cool things with food” recipes, so you may want to include your kids with this one. 

Final cost after the 3 Freebies $1.99 (Friendly’s ice cream!)

Thanks Elizabeth!
