i haven't actually made the cake yet, but 5 stars so far because i love ice cream cake! i'm going to make this cake tonight for my niece's bday tomorrow. i read from the reviews that a lot of people used 9-in round pans, which i'm planning on doing and added the ice cream by slathering it on the cake. i found a tip on another site which i think is very helpful with using round pans. take another 9-in pan and line it with wax paper and pack the ice cream in there. freeze it overnight (4 hours at least) and then flip it over on the prepared cake and top with the other layer of cake. ooh, and i just thought of this myself...if you want to do two thinner layers of ice cream, use the same 9-in pan. line the bottom with wax paper, fill it half way with ice cream and do another layer of wax paper which hangs over the pan's sides and fill the rest of the pan with ice cream. i just came up with this so i haven't tried it before, but after you're done freezing the ice cream in the pan and before you dump the first layer of ice cream onto the cake, hold the wax paper taut so the other layer of ice cream stays in the pan. sorry if it doesn't work!!
