I followed the recipe except I spread the strawberry ice cream over (gluten-free) angel food cake.
Sounds right to me. Kinda like buying a carton of good quality strawberry ice cream
Also try baking a 2-layer cake and putting this in between the layers. Then frost with whipped cream.
I imagine you can use low-fat ice cream or frozen yogurt in this. And use low-fat non-dairy whipped topping in place of the whipped cream. Real Simple often features low-fat recipes in the magazine and online. You can search for them in the recipe section of the website.
I have not made this yet! but Could you please make the recipes low-fat?
