This is not as easy as it looks! The recipe is not really thorough enough. It would be helpful to know that this cake needs to be frozen over night! It tasted fine but I made this cake for guests and used a box chocolate cake. I didn't have a 9x13 pan but I also wanted to layer the cake and ice cream so I used 2 loaf pans and spit the cake batter in 1/2. Then, I used a large slice of the ice cream to place between the cakes. THat part was great. THe ice cream was frozen fine but when I went to ice it about 2 hours later (after being in the freezer), the ice cream was mushy. I still managed to ice it ok thinking it would freeze solid soon, but, in another 2 hours when I cut into it, it was still mushy. The next morning, the remainer of the cake frozen perfectly. My freezer isn't abnormally warm or anything. So, the moral of this story is: make the cake a day ahead of time and freeze it overnight!!!!
