Reviews for Swiss Swirl Ice Cream Cake
"I've been making these for years and they are always a big hit! When I first tried it, it was called a 'beehive', and used strawberry jelly rolls. Quick and easy to put together, yet it looks so impressive. Remember, the more flavors of ice cream you use, the prettier it becomes."
"Question about the recipe it says two months to freeze the cake how long is that actual time period"
"My son and daughter have both requested this for their birthday cake 2 years in a row. (Sometimes I cheat and only use one flavor of ice cream. No one seems to mind.)"
"Great taste and I will make again. Mine did not turn out as pretty as the picture though."
"So easy yet impressive! I was commissioned to make another one a week after making the first, and I'm switching up the ice cream flavors for a little variety. This is a terrific fun dessert!"
"Very good! I didn't have room in my freezer for a 2-qt bowl, so I used a baking dish instead. It took 24 Swiss cake rolls to cover, but it worked just fine."
