Well I decided to google it to see and it said they frost the cake with equal parts icec ream to thawed frozen whipped topping beaten together. sounds very messy though so I dont know if that has any truth behind it.
My family also thinks buttercream is very sweet and so my mom tried using the package from Micheals that you just add water too and she said it was awesome.

I just went through all this last week when I was trying to make an ice cream cake. I ended up doing what Baskin Robbins does. I made the layers of ice cream and cake, then iced the outside of the cake with slightly melted vanilla ice cream. After it refroze, I piped borders and decorations of buttercream. That way, if you don't like buttercream, there won't be that much on the cake at all!

Ever tried SMBC or IMBC? It's not sweet at all like regular BC and reminds me more of a whipped topping.

The DQ's here use Dixie's whipped icing as do the local grocery stores. She has a web site if you want to check it out http://www.dixiesicing.com/
