What frosting do you use on an ice cream cake? I have heard of using cool whip but are there others? I assume buttercream frosting would freeze too hard. Any suggestions?
Maybe Bettercreme (Rich's). I haven't tried it, but it is very stable and yummy and easily doctored to tailor the taste.
I have only had them with a stabilized whipped icing
I used whip cream: Use heavy cream whipped with a couple of Tabl. sugar and bit of vanilla extract. Ice the cake as you would a "cake" and freeze. Turns out great everytime!
i did an ice cream cake once I think I used Rich's Whipped that is in the freezer section
I've only made one (the ugly little flag cake in my pics), but I used my regular buttercream and it worked just fine, it froze hard, but softened up just fine by the time it was served.
I worked for a place that made them and we used a regular buttercream type icing mixed with Vanilla ice cream.

That sounds really good! What was the ratio of buttercreme to ice cream?
ditto on wanting to know the ratio. sounds yummy.
I freeze my BC so I just used my normal BC and it was fantastic! Good luck!!
I've used both Bettercream (Rich's) and my standard buttercream and both turned out fantastic
