Homemade Ice~Cream Cake

It is easy to make an ice cream cake and you can make it with your favorite ice cream flavors! 
The cake above was made by halving the recipe and it easily serves 8.
The ice cream cake below was made for our small group bible study that meets every Wednesday evening. We study, share and pray for one another. We have been together for many years caring for and ...
Ice~Cream Cake

1 package Oreo Cookies (if you prefer you can use chocolate wafer cookies, remove the cream centers from the Oreo's or just use them as the come from the package)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (1/2 gal*.) container vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (1/2 gal*.) container ice cream flavor of your choice, softened
container Cool Whip

Anytime up to two weeks before serving, make crumbs from cookies in blended or with rolling pin. Combine crumbs and melted butter, reserving 2/3 cup of crumbs. Firmly press remaining crumbs over bottom and up sides of a 10-inch springform pan. Freeze until firm (15 minutes).

Remove from freezer and spread vanilla ice cream in an even layer. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Return to freezer until ice cream is firm

Spread second container of ice~cream. Cover top with foil and freeze. Early on serving day put serving plate in freezer to chill. Ten minutes before serving, invert pan onto plate, release catch, and remove sides and bottom.

(I tinted the Cool Whip with food coloring and frosted the top of the ice~cream cake.)
* Container sizes have shrunk, so I use the current tub size
This yummy cake was made with chocolate and coffee flavor ice cream
