  2. Ha Ha. Yes, there is something so compellingly good about bad food. But let's face it, that kind of food is engineered to make you want it. KFC hits all of the right spots in our brain. Oh how I love it!

    I love how you make the redneck ice cream cake with ice cream sandwiches, but you use real whipped cream!

    I need to make a confession. I had your latest comments on my blog come through my email. I doubt there is anything you could ever send me that I wouldn't publish, but somehow for one of them my hand slipped and when I went to hit "publish" I accidentally hit "delete". I apologize for that. I didn't want you to think that i meant to reject your comment.

    1. That is true! I love it too. :/ I just have a love for deep fried food.

      Haha thanks for calling me out! I agree. It's kind of a white trashy dessert. I tried to make it a little classy though!

      Whoops I have done that before too. It's easy to do! I have a fear of accidentally deleting all of my posts on Blogger.

  5. Hi Emily, I used to love Carvel Flying Saucers when I was a kid -- their round version of ice cream sandwiches. Once I put whipped cream and fudge sauce on (both from cans) and thought it was the best thing ever. I'd do it again in a heartbeat, only with fresh whipped cream and a coffee-fudge sauce. Thanks for a great memory!

  7. I love the idea of an icecream cake made with icecream sandwiches - what's not to like about layers of icecream and biscuit. KFC is like that, tastes good then makes you feel not so good.

  11. I love ice cream sandwich cake. In fact, I've been craving it lately. Have ever thought about incorporating Bailey's into an ice cream sandwich cake? That thought just occurred to me after scrolling and seeing your latest Bailey's creations and landing on this. Maybe an ice cream sandwich cake with Bailey's flavored whipped cream?
