Frosty and impressive, this versatile ice cream cake is pretty enough for company, simple enough for a weeknight treat. Kathy Morrow in Hubbard, Ohio suggests you try food coloring to tint the whipped topping or use different flavors of ice cream, extracts and cookie or candy crumbs to suit different holidays or occasions!
Nancy Geissler said that years ago she saw a cake mix ad for a similar cake. This became the inspiration for her colorful cake roll using a homemade sponge cake. She likes to keep it on-hand in her freezer in the summer. "Besides looking pretty, it's refreshing and it always gets raves," she writes from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Talk about a dessert that pops. Sometimes, I make this easy cake even more eye-catching by coloring the whipped cream, too. Use whatever sherbet flavor combination you like. —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
