WOW! It is warming up and we are almost ready for fun summer holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July! This Patriotic Cake with a SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars Layer is the easiest and yummiest way to get into the spirit of the summer season.

Have you tried SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars? They are seriously delicious! They are great on their own and also in this yummy Patriotic Ice Cream Cake. I bought them at our local Dollar General®.

This Patriotic Cake with SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars Layer is not your typical American flag cake for Memorial Day. It is one of those cool layer cakes that are super hot on Instagram, but this cake recipe is actually easy to make.

The cake mix is vanilla cake with a SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars layer and white frosting. I know that some people like to make the cake red, white, and blue on the inside, but I wanted to make this cake the simplest and easiest to eat and clean up. Have you ever eaten red cakes? They are crazy messy! Let’s get started with the baking of this awesome Patriotic Ice Cream Cake.

Patriotic Cake with SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars Layer

Ingredients

  • 5-10 SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars
  • 8 TBSP unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 2 TBSP Butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

How to Make a Patriotic Cake with Ice Cream Bars?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter two 8-inch round cake pans with the 2 tablespoons of butter.
  3. Then, line bottoms with parchment paper. Now, butter parchment.
  4. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Beat together butter and granulated sugar with a mixer on medium speed until combined, 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Add eggs and beat well, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary.
  7. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture, beating until combined.
  8. Add the whole milk and vanilla extract and beat until just combined.
  9. Make the butter cream frosting by softening 2 sticks of butter.
  10. Whip the softened butter for 3 minutes.
  11. Add 4 cups of powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time. Beat until combined.
  12. Add whole milk into the mix, 1 TBSP at a time. You are looking for slightly soft buttercream—enough so you can fill in the edges of the cake.
  13. Place 1 cake layer on a cake plate and layer the SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars on top.
  14. Place remaining cake layer on top.
  15. Spread top and sides of cake with the frosting.
  16. Sprinkle the top and side of the cake.
  17. Serve immediately or put in the freezer. Take out of the freezer 20 minutes before serving.
