Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

  I have a husband. 
His name is John. 
He's what you'd call a man-child.

He would live off ice cream sandwiches and Coke if I'd let him.

He wishes he had a bike so he could ride around with a cape saving the neighbourhood from villains.
You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.

All he wants for Christmas this year (and every year): a super power.

He blows things up for a living.

His greatest fear: zombies.
Naturally, he spends his free time plotting out his contingency plan if there's ever a zombie invasion.
Again, I do not kid.

It may not surprise you that last week he requested an ice cream sandwich cake for his 28th birthday.

(Begin rant: I make a million delicious things and this, the easiest and most boring thing ever is his favourite cake!?! End rant.)

It's kind of a weird time of year to be making things with ice cream but he's a weird kind of guy so I just go with it.

Despite his quirks, I like him. 
I'd make him an ice cream sandwich cake everyday if he wanted.
He's worth it.
Plus, if he ever does get his super powers or zombies do attack I want to make sure I'm an ally.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
Serves: 6 or 1 man-child
(An original recipe that I'm sure I borrowed from somewhere)

1 box ice cream sandwiches (12ea)
½ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 skor bars, roughly chopped (or your favourite kind of candy bar)
chocolate sauce (optional)

1. Beat the heavy cream with the vanilla and sugar until stiff peaks form.
2. Arrange ice cream sandwiches on the bottom  of a 9'' x 5'' loaf pan. I use 2 full ones and 2 with about 1/4 cut off of them. Top this with 1/3 of the whipped cream and sprinkle with 1/3 of the chopped candy bar. If using, drizzle with chocolate sauce.
3. Repeat 2 more times, using the remaining ice cream sandwiches, whipped cream and candy bar.
4. Freeze at least one hour or until very hard. (If leaving longer than 1 hour wrap in plastic wrap.)
5. To serve, allow cake to thaw on the counter for about 5 minutes. Remove from loaf pan and slice.
