And don’t be put off by the whole ‘four layers’ thing. It might sound complicated, but I promise it’s the easiest thing ever.

Ice-cream, lamingtons, ice-cream, lamingtons… that’s it!!

Oooh I should add that this cake does need to be made the day before serving to allow it enough time to completely firm up (and yes, you can make it a couple of days beforehand!).

Once frozen, the lamington fingers will remain deliciously soft, while the creaminess of the ice-cream and the crunch of the chocolate ice-magic help to make it the ice-cream cake that dreams are made of. DEEEELISH!!!

Ingredients

  • 4 litre tub neapolitan ice-cream
  • 2 X 350 g packets lamington fingers
  • 1/4 cup raspberry topping
  • ice-magic, extra lamington fingers, M&Ms, to decorate

Instructions

  1. Line a square baking tin with plastic wrap (allowing it to overhang the edges). 

  2. Seperate the 3 colours of ice-cream (see notes). Place the chocolate back into the tub, and place the vanilla and strawberry flavours into 2 seperate bowls. 

  3. Place the vanilla ice-cream bowl into the freezer while you start preparing the first layers. 

  4. Allow the strawberry ice-cream to soften (but not melt). Spoon it into the base of the prepared square tin and use a spoon to spread it out evenly. 

  5. Place the lamington fingers in an even layer over the top and then put in the freezer to set. 

  6. Take the vanilla ice-cream out of the freezer and allow to soften. 

  7. Take the ice-cream cake out of the freezer and drizzle raspberry topping over the top of the lamingtons. 

  8. Spread over the softened vanilla ice-cream and then add another layer of chocolate lamington fingers. Cover with extra plastic wrap and place back into the freezer for a minimum of 6 hours (overnight is best). 

  9. To decorate, take the ice-cream cake out of the freezer and turn it upside down on a serving board. Cover with ice-magic (allowing it to drip down the sides). Decorate with extra chopped lamington fingers, raspberry topping and M&Ms. Place back into the freezer for 30 minutes or until ready to serve. 

Recipe Notes

To separate the ice-cream colours, simply turn the entire tub of ice-cream upside down onto a chopping board. Use a large knife to divide the ice-cream into the three flavours.

        Where can I buy rasberry topping? And what size cake tin did you use? My son wants this for his 6th birthday

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Hi Debbie, you can buy it from any supermarket (I bought the Cottees brand one from Woolworths). I used a 20cm X 2cm cake tin but you could use larger if you like as it gets very full. xx

    Found this when searching Pinterest for ideas after my son requested a lamington cake for his 6th birthday. He loved it! I divided the ice cream into smaller containers, then used the 4L tub as my container for the cake. I used strawberry jam instead of raspberry topping, and made my own ice-magic using dark chocolate & coconut oil.
    A big success and probably the easiest birthday cake I have made (no baking!!)
    Thanks
