Maxibon Cake

Let me apologize in advance for the random and sheer stupidity of the content of this post.I don’t know if I can call this a recipe. It barely qualifies really. It’s actually quite insane. No, its totally insane. Let me explain: My housemate always has ice cream cake for his birthday, its tradition. Yesterday while discussing cakes and food, we joked about ice cream and he made a comment about making a cake out of Maxibons. In case you haven’t experienced the wonder that is a Maxibon, basically it is an ice cream sandwich with biscuit on one side and dipped in chocolate on the other. They are amazing. Anyway, our joke was mainly because we do have a habit of buying these ice creams in bulk, and someone joked about stacking them on top of each other to make a cake….Challenge accepted.

You are looking at 8 Maxibons and 4 layers of creamy goodness! I used cookies & cream ice cream as the ‘frosting’ and as cement to hold the whole thing together. It was gloriously disgusting. I’m a little ashamed of how delicious it was. I think my fingers are still frozen from handling so much ice cream, and I still feel quite ill, but it was totally worth it.

    As someone who’s never handled ice-cream in any way, I gotta ask… How do you make it before the ice cream melts?

      Work quickly! I also made this in the evening when it was cooler, which helped. The fact that you are layering ice cream with more ice cream means that the whole ‘cake’ keeps itself quite cool. :)
