So my husband’s birthday was Monday.
And, as with all the projects in my life lately, I was late making his cake.
I mean seriously. His favorite cake is SOOOOOOOOO easy to make! It’s like, 5 ingredients and costs less than $10.
I really suck.
Anyway, here’s his cake:
Here’s what you need to make it:
1/2 cup warmed Hot fudge sauce. I used Hershey’s Hot Fudge, in the jar. It’s the best, and I should know. I have tried just about every ice cream topping know to man!
1 tub of Cool Whip (2 tubs if you want to pipe it on pretty as I did)
1 pkg Chocolate instant pudding
8 Oreos chopped/broken into “chunky” pieces
12 Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches
That’s all you need.
Whisk together hot fudge sauce and 1 cup of the whipped topping. Add dry pudding and stir (if it seams too thick add 2 – 4 tbsp of milk)
Stir in chopped Oreos.
Arrange 4 ice cream sandwiches side by side on your serving tray. Top with half the pudding mixture, the another 4 ice cream sandwiches, then the rest of the pudding mixture, then the last 4 ice cream sandwiches.
Cover with a thin layer of whip cream and freeze for an hour then pipe on the rest of the whip cream using a no. 21 tip, starting at the base and squeezing gently as you move up the side of the cake.
I used hot fudge to write Happy Birthday, but you could use frosting or decorating gel. Just be warned that decorating gel in the tube (for writing on cakes) can bleed when it’s on whip cream, thanks to the condensation.
And there you have it.
It looks fancy when you cut into it so it’s perfect for company.
Or you can eat the whole thing by yourself, but I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s very rich, so 1 slice nearly put me into a sugar coma. But it was worth it.
Happy Birthday Miguel. You are my everything and I love you.
Sorry I suck.
