What to look for before buying an ice cream cake?
Better eat it fresh: Yeah I know, you’ll check the expiration date of any store-bought product.
But ice cream cake has two different types of dessert that have different “best before” dates. You can keep the ice cream in a freezer for a month. But the cake won’t taste good by doing so.
Delivery time and method: Most of the time we don’t have time to go look around in a store for an ice cream cake. Especially, when we see those luscious and appetizing ice cream cake ads online.
You can buy the cake from any trustworthy website. However, check the delivery time and request a cooler for your cake.
The cake shouldn’t be delivered too early, as it will melt.
The proportion and chewiness: Ice cream cakes are mostly ice creams. If you’re expecting a big bite of cake, ice cream cakes may disappoint you.
Also, most of the ice cream cakes are fudgy and chewy, not fluffy and airy.
Thaw it: Well, this isn’t particularly a tip for before buying it. But you’ll need it right after buying it.
After buying the ice cream cake, you shouldn’t store it in the fridge. Store it in the freezer. And 1h before the party, keep it in the fridge.
What aisle is ice cream cake in?
Ice cream cakes are available in the bakery and bread aisle of grocery stores. There is a section called cakes and cupcakes. You’ll find ice cream cakes there in the display case.
You may find ice cream cake in the deli aisle too. Look beside the sweet desserts. You can also check the frozen food section.
Where to buy ice cream cake?
Amazon has a handful of ice cream cakes for us. Most of the cakes are from Carvel. Americans’ most trusted one for cakes and ice creams. Carvel has some amazing combinations of classic and modern flavors of ice cream cake. Some of them you can find at Amazon-
Carvel Lil’ Love Round Ice Cream Cake is a combination of classic vanilla and chocolate ice cream.
Carvel Lil’ Love Strawberry Ice Cream Crunchie Cake is strawberry flavored. Has a coating of crunchy beads.
Although I recommend the cakes for their taste, make sure you order them only in winter. Most of the time the ice cream cake is delivered ruined and melted, due to the lack of authority.
Aside from Carvel, you can find Oreo Premium Ice Cream Cake in Walmart.
If you like a crunchy, cold dessert, this cake is for you. Filled with real Oreo crumbs, this cake is covered with vanilla ice cream. You can serve up to 9 people with this one.
Marketside Cookies’n Cream Ice Cream Cake is of the same price as Oreo cake. This cake is set on top of chocolate-filled cookie crumbs. Mostly covered with vanilla ice cream, and chocolate drizzled on top.
Friendly’s Chocolate Krunch Premium Ice Cream Cake has three layers. Vanilla and chocolate ice cream layers are separated by a layer of fudge and crunchies.
Marketside Unicorn Ice Cream Cake is a beautiful pastel cake. You can easily use this cake for your little ones’ birthday. Unicorn cake is decorated with rainbow sprinkles and pink-blue swirls of ice cream.
If you aren’t a vanilla lover, try Reese’s Premium Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake. It has chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. And a whip of peanut butter.
For our classic Carvel ice cream cake lovers, Walmart has-
Carvel Ice Cream Cake, (Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream. This one serves up to 24 people)
The best ice cream cake you can buy from Kroger is Kroger® Deluxe Party Pail Celebration Cake Ice Cream Family Size. You’ll get this family-size cake for only $5! It is available in the frozen food aisle, in the ice cream section.

Friendly’s Peanut Butter Cup Premium Ice Cream Cake is a lovely cake with peanut butter chopped in the center. The cake is glazed with chocolate.
