Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

Chocolate Ice Cream Cake with Raspberry Chocolate Chunk and Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

I was wondering why most of the recipes for ice cream layer cakes were composed of yellow pound cake.  I mean 100 to 1, I saw images on the internet of yada, yada - yellow pound cake ice cream cakes.  The Chocolate Goddess was bewildered and so I did something about it.  I would create an ice cream layer chocolate pound cake that would dazzle the palette.

This chocolate pound cake is layered with raspberry chocolate chunk ice cream and chocolate chip almond coconut ice cream then finally frosted with a layer of chocolate fudge. I mean what a taste sensation, and so easy to make too. With those with a penchant for chocolate and ice cream your time has arrived.  This is a no bake summer dessert with panache.  Pound it, baby!
