Heavenly Angel Food Ice Cream Cake

INGREDIENTS:Angel Food Ice Cream Cake | It's Heavenly!
1 box of angel food cake – bake per the instructions on the box
1b of strawberries (If you love strawberries have a second lb on hand, the more the berrier!)
1 – 10 oz package of Oreo Thins
2 – 1/2 gallon containers of vanilla ice cream (Personal Opinion: Homemade Vanilla & Vanilla Bean flavors taste the best with this recipe.)
1 tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
Disposable Medium Roaster – Foil Pan
Angel Food Cake Pan
*You will also need: 1 quart sized ziplock bag & aluminum foil.


DIRECTIONS:
1.Start by making the angel food cake per the directions on the box.  I recommend an angel food pan with legs, click here.

2.While the angel food cake is baking, set out the 2 – 1/2 gallon containers of ice cream to begin softening.  To keep your area clean, put them in your foil pan. Let the ice cream sit out for at least 30 minutes.

3.While the angel food cake is baking and the ice cream is softening, begin chopping up your 1b of strawberries into small diced pieces. Feel free to use more if you want your desert to be extra berry-filled. (Save approximately 1/3 cup of diced strawberries and a few whole strawberries for the toppings at the end.)

4.Once your strawberries are diced, put 5 oz (half the package) of Oreo Thins into a bag and smash into small pieces. Feel free to use more if you want your desert to be extra Oreo-filled. (Save and set aside the other half of the package for the toppings at the end.)

5.Once your ice cream has softened and has become moldable, begin mixing it around and flattening it out evenly in the pan.

6.I love vanilla, so I add 1 tablespoon of vanilla to the softened ice cream.

10.Before you refreeze your ice cream cake, decorate the top with your leftover Oreos and strawberries. With your saved Oreo Thins, mash up half and sprinkle around, and then place the remaining few whole Oreo Thins strategically around.  Do the same thing with your strawberries, sprinkle the diced pieces around and then strategically place your strawberry halves in the open spots.  These touches make it look extra delicious.

11.Make sure to cover your cake with aluminum foil and/or a lid if your pan comes with one, and freeze over night or as long as needed.
