Can I put ice cream cake in the fridge?

What variations of this ice cream cake recipe can I try?
If you’re looking to switch things up, try using an ice cream flavor other than vanilla. Anything goes—coffee, strawberry, mint chip or cookie dough! And instead of sprinkling the top with just cookies, add your favorite chopped nuts, fruit, sprinkles or mini candies. Maraschino cherries are also a fun garnish to add once the Oreo ice cream cake is ready to serve. Or, check out our other ice cream cake recipes
