The "icing" and decorations are usually made with Rich's Bettercreme (also called Pastry Pride).  This stuff is sold in cartons in the frozen food section--thaw it and whip according to the directions on the carton.


The store cakes are layers of sponge cake or cake mix cake.  Once they are cold, line the same pan with plastic wrap and build the layers back into it.  You put in cake and add the softened up ice cream in layers and any other stuff like chips etc.  Then you chuck the whole thing back into the freezer after each layer of ice cream.


You need to get your covering stuff ready (whip it, have pastry bag and tip)  before you take the cake out of the pan.  You ice quickly and freeze that layer.  Then you decorate as fast as you can but make a neat job.  Then the whole thing waits in the freezer for the party. 


The store cakes have some air brushing but you gotta be good to be quick.  For home, you would be better off having a sugar shet printed with a fancy image.  Put that on JUST before you serve the cake or it will bleed all over.

AIf you want it all ice cream you can do it with cookie crumbs and chocolate syrup in the middle. You will need some form of spring pan. I worked at Dairy Queen and they used just the outside of the pan. In other words the pan was same material as you use to bake a cake, but no bottom...If that make sense. Then it would freeze on the board. It was the vanilla soft swirl. Love their cakes.

Go on you tube. I did see someone use the better cream as the previous poster mentioned.

Have fun!

AI made one with stabilized whipped cream for the frosting. You just add some gelatins to heavy cream. It's very simple to make. I used regular buttercream for the decorations on top (flowers, vines, writing), but I did a top and bottom shell border using the stabilized whipped cream. You do have to work pretty quickly, but whipped cream is pretty forgiving. P
