I don’t know about where you live, but it’s freakin’ hot here in Dallas and all I think about, all the time, is ice cream. In a cup, in a cone, or straight from the carton. As long it’s going in my mouth, I’m lovin’ it!

A sweet relief from this crazy summer heat!

In our family, we all have different favorite flavors, but mint chip ice cream is one that we all love. So when I came up with the idea to make an ice cream cake for a weekend treat, everybody jumped with joy when I told them it would be mint chocolate chip!

Such a yummy and refreshing flavor!

How to Use Whipped Cream Instead of Cool Whip

If you’re not a fan of store bought whipped topping, you can substitute homemade whipped cream instead. In my Basics by The BakerMama series, I show you how to make homemade whipped cream from heavy cream.

It’s an easy, sweet homemade touch that can’t be beat. For this ice cream cake recipe, you will need 3 cups of this homemade whipped cream to replace the Cool Whip.
