Swiss Cake Roll Ice Cream Log



Craving Ice cream and cake at the same time? Try this recipe on for size.  It combines two familiars in a pleasing way, easily jazzing up the dessert scene, with little effort and a little patience.  Once you make sure your log is frozen solid before getting ready to serve, the rest is smooth sailing!  I was so excited about this recipe, I failed to give proper time to set completely!  I used chocolate and vanilla bean ice cream.  You may choose your brand accordingly.  I also plan to share my Strawberry Shortcake version of this same log, so stay tuned!  





Recipe:
2 half gallons or containers of ice cream, one chocolate, one vanilla or vanilla bean
 6 chocolate cake rolls
Plastic wrap
Loaf pan
Rubber Spatulas
Allow ice creams to thaw just enough to manipulate.
Line loaf pan with plastic wrap.
Press about 1/3 of chocolate ice cream into pan.
Take the chocolate cakes and place one about 1 inch from edge of loaf pan lengthwise, rounded side down.
Place two more cakes, flat sides together, and position on top of the first cake.
Repeat with remaining 3 cakes.
Spoon vanilla ice cream in and around stacked cakes and press into all corners.
After securing cakes, continue to add ice cream and cover cake stacks, until no longer visible and the top is smooth and compact. 
Fold the pieces of plastic wrap over the top of the ice cream and refrigerate until the loaf is frozen solid and able to stand cutting , at least 24 hours.
For serving, invert onto chilled plate for best results.
Garnish with chocolate sprinkles if desired.
May be served with chocolate syrup and whipped cream for a decadent presentation, or served in slices as is, for a splendid dessert, perfect for any occasion.
