Swiss Roll Ice Cream Cake Ingredients

I suppose this isn’t technically an ice cream cake since it is not your usual ice cream filling, but I really like eating this cake from frozen. The cream cheese/whipped cream mixture is actually quite similar to ice cream – except that it doesn’t melt like ice cream, which is pretty nice. You can store it in the refrigerator or the freezer.

Only a few simple ingredients are needed for this cake – some Swiss Cake Rolls from the store, Oreo cookies, heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.

Creating the Swiss Roll Crust

Sharpen up your knife and start slicing up all of those Swiss Rolls, then use them as the “crust” of the cake! Line the whole bottom and sides of a springform pan, then you even get to top off the filling with a layer of the Swiss Roll slices.

Here’s a tip: If you want the outside of the cake to look more uniform, place the chocolate-covered end pieces of the Swiss Rolls with the chocolate-covered part facing toward the inside of the cake.

Whipping the Cream

It is best to chill the metal mixing bowl and whisk attachment before whipping up the cream. Cold whipping cream and cold equipment will offer better results.

Note: I used my hand mixer for the cream cheese and my stand mixer for the whipped cream.

Creating the Ice Cream Cake Filling

Gently fold in the whipped cream and the cookie pieces with a spatula – you want to keep that texture and volume of the whipped cream in there.

If cookies and cream and Swiss Rolls seem like a weird combo to you, don’t worry, it works out great.
