cups water
4
cup (2 pints) strawberry ice cream, softened
2
cups whipping cream
1/4
cup sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
cup small, whole strawberries

Directions

  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions using the 1 1/4 cups water. Pour batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Gently cut through batter to remove any large air pockets.

Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 6 to 24 hours.
  4. To serve, in chilled mixing bowl beat whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form.
  5. Remove cake from freezer. Spread top and sides of frozen cake with whipped cream. Garnish with fresh strawberries. Serve immediately. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
