Easy Ice Cream Cake

Really, who doesn't love a good ice cream cake? Now you don't have to get one from the store because our Easy Ice Cream Cake is just that -- easy! And we can bet no one will ever want the store bought kind again!

Serves: 8 Chilling Time: 6 hr

What You'll Need:
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1  (4-serving-size) package strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 (10-3/4-ounce) package frozen pound cake, thawed and cut into 1-inch cubes
8  strawberries

What To Do:
Line a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, extending over sides.
In a large bowl, combine ice cream, whipped topping, and dry gelatin; mix well. Stir in cake cubes and pour into prepared pan.
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 6 to 8 hours, or until firm.
Remove from pan, invert onto serving platter, and discard plastic wrap.  Garnish with strawberries, then slice and serve. Store leftover ice cream cake in freezer.

        Drizzle with hot fudge before serving for that extra special touch!
