Ice Cream Cake

I made this cake for my brother's birthday and everybody thought it was wonderful.  My grandma thought that it was better than a bakery one she had had the day before. The cool whip icing made it for me. :)

Ice cream cake

2 qt ice cream (We did 1 qt. chocolate and 1 qt. vanilla.)
2 to 3 c. crushed oreo cookies
caramel sauce
hot fudge sauce
1 8 oz. container of Cool whip

Soften 1 qt. ice cream for 15 minutes.  In the meantime get out a spring form pan and crush the oreos.  When the ice cream is spreadable, spoon all of it in the pan and spread it as evenly as possible with a spatula.  I find it easier to use a big spatula than a little one because it is less flexible.

 Now, one thing that you have to remember is that you have to work fast.  After you have spread the first layer of ice cream in the pan, put it in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.  Take it out and spread the crushed oreos over top,

then drizzle the caramel and hot fudge sauce evenly over the oreos.  Put it in the freezer for another 30 minutes.  Soften the other qt. of ice cream out.  Take the cake out of the freezer and spread the other ice cream on top.  Put it in the freezer for another 30 minutes.  Take it out and ice it with the cool whip.  Put it back in the freezer until frozen again.  Remove and decorate.

Sorry I don't have very many pictures, I had to work fast and didn't have much time to take them.
