Frozen Ice Cream Cake

You’ve heard of Baked Alaska, but have you heard of not Baked Alaska? I mean it is a frozen ice cream cake after all, why would you bake ice cream?

Well, it’s time to end this game right now. This frozen ice cream cake dessert is the unbaked Alaska. 

And the 3 ingredients you need to bake it are simply:

  • Twinkies
  • Ice Cream
  • Cool Whip

Traditionally, Baked Alaska is made up of a scratch made cake, multiple layers of ice creams and then meringue. The whipped egg whites are piped onto the outside of the ice cream, and then they are cooked.

Can you say tons of work? It’s summer right now and the last thing I want to deal with is anything else that is hot. 

But in this version of not Baked Alaska, not only do you not have to bake this frozen ice cream cake (which seems like it should be obvious) but you also do not have to bake anything! It could not be easier to put this awesome dessert together!

Also, in my opinion, egg whites should never be described as marshmallowy, but you know what does taste like clouds of delicious pillowy soft fluff?

That’s right – cool whip!

This not Baked Alaska frozen ice cream cake is inspired by the character Hurley from my once favorite TV show Lost. If you care about why this is no longer my favorite TV show, read about my island inspired coconut and pecan cookies. It’s too painful to talk about again. 

But if you watched Lost, then you know that Hurley was a big guy and he liked processed food. One of his famous lines from the show is: “You know maybe if you eat more comfort food you wouldn’t have to go around shooting people.”

Hurley liked food like twinkies, food like ice cream, and food like cool whip. So this not baked alaska frozen ice cream cake is legit comfort food, and is the easiest way to make a frozen ice cream cake. 

And it’s super duper yummy.

  • 1 package Twinkies

Cake Base

  • Match a springform cake pan base with a bowl that is the same width across. The cake pan base should fit right on top of the opening of the bowl.

  • Cover the base of the pan with cut twinkies, cream side up
  • Make sure to fill the cake pan snug
  • Freeze twinkies in pan until firm

Ice Cream Center

  • Now take the bowl that matches your cake pan, and line it with tin foil making sure that the foil overhangs the edges of your bowl
  • Spoon your favorite softened ice cream into the bowl
  • You can use multiple flavors, or just one
  • Fill the bowl as high as you can or want to
  • Freeze until solid

Cool Whip Frosting

  • Once your twinkies and ice cream are frozen solid, take the bowl full of ice cream out of the freezer
  • Also, take your frozen twinkies out of the freezer
  • Using the foil overhanging the bowl, pull the ice cream out of the bowl
  • Invert the ice cream dome on top of the twinkies, while still in the cake pan base
  • The twinkies will now be on the bottom and the ice cream will be shaped on top of the twinkies forming a round half globe
  • Cover tops and sides with cool whip
  • Freeze again until firm

  1. I'm a HUGE Lost fan… HUGE… Sawyer's my hottie…They say that the season premier will make more sense after the next episode.

    Excited about the final season beginning, but sad it is the final season. 🙁

  2. I'm sure everyone is struck by the LOST info but I can't get over that yummy dessert that includes Twinkies! Yummy!

    Visiting from SITS.

  3. Holy moly, Twinkies AND Cool Whip! Yumminess! I've got LOST on my Netflix list. I missed out on the first two seasons (night classes or something like that), and by the time I could watch it I was so far behind it wasn't worth it! Finally caught up on Ugly Betty.

  4. We can totally chat Lost theories. I'm already planning on wearing black for my year of mourning after the final episode.
