My birthday’s at the end of the month and I’ve already put in a request for tiramisu desserts for my celebration.  Cake, cupcakes – it really doesn’t matter as long as it’s tiramisu flavored!  Tiramisu has been my number one, top favorite dessert since…oh, about forever!  The combination of sponge cake, coffee, mascarpone cheese, and cocoa powder is rich and heavenly!

As I was thinking about this year’s birthday dessert possibilities, I landed on a thought.  Remember the S’mores Ice Cream Sandwich Cake that I made?  What if I started the celebration early and made a Tiramisu Ice Cream Sandwich Cake?  Usually, I’m not one to celebrate my birthday all month long.  But I will celebrate tiramisu inspired desserts!

Ice cream sandwich cakes have become a pretty popular summer dessert trend over the past few years.  They’re made in a loaf pan and flavors can easily be altered to create a delicious summer dessert.

In this case, the ice cream sandwiches fill in for sponge cake.  Then, the rest of the ice cream cake is made with Cool Whip, Neufchatel cheese (a good stand in if you couldn’t find mascarpone, like me), prepared coffee, and cocoa powder.

The hardest part about making this ice cream sandwich cake is waiting for everything to solidify in the freezer so you can eat it!  You get layers of ice cream sandwiches brushed with coffee, Neufchatel whipped cream, and cocoa powder in every delicious bite!

To start this ice cream sandwich cake, we need to line a loaf pan with waxed paper.  Then, mix up the whipped cream.  This is made with a tub of Cool Whip and a package of Neufchatel cheese.  If you can find it, use mascarpone cheese for a more authentic tiramisu.

Now, we can start layering.  Add a layer of ice cream sandwiches to the bottom of the loaf pan.  I used square ice cream sandwiches because I think they fit the pan better.  Then, brush the ice cream sandwiches with coffee.

Follow that by spreading some of the whipped cream mixture on top.

Add another layer of ice cream sandwiches on top of that and brush them with coffee.  Instead of adding whipped cream on top of that, we’re going to cover the loaf pan and pop it in the freezer for about an hour.

Once everything is frozen, carefully take the cake out of the loaf pan and place it on a serving plate.  Now, we’re going to frost the entire cake with the rest of the whipped cream and pop it back into the freezer for about two hours, or until you’re ready to serve it.

When you’re ready to serve the cake, add a sprinkle of cocoa powder on top and cut into slices.
