To make this delicious ice cream sandwich cake, you'll be able to use a lot of your own creativity. We used Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches, vanilla frosting, and M&Ms for topping, but you can easily switch those up!

Lay 6 brownies on a cake plate and cover the tops of them with a layer of frosting.

Lay 4 ice cream sandwiches along one side. Lay 2 more long ways. One of the ice cream sandwiches will be too long, so you can break the excess off. Each ice cream sandwich layer will use about 5 and 2/3 sandwiches. Use a knife to cut off the excess brownie.

Add a layer of frosting on top of the ice cream sandwiches.

Now you get to frost your cake! If the ice cream is too melted, freeze the cake for a bit before applying the frosting.

Cover the cake with frosting completely and then decorate with sprinkles.

You can even use M&Ms like I did to decorate the base of the cake. And when I cut into it?
