to assemble the ice cream cake -

  • Before assembling, make sure your ice cream is fully frozen, and your brownie base is completely cooled. If you have made your salted caramel and fudge ahead of time, warm them until they are just pourable - not cold, and not warm.

Notes

The recipe above will yield 1 nine-inch ice cream layer and 1 nine-inch brownie layer. To make a four-layer ice cream cake as pictured you will need to double both the ice cream and the brownie recipes. Depending on the size of your ice cream machine, you may have to do this in two batches.
When making this cake here is the timeline I like to follow: 3 days before assembly - make the first ice cream layer and the hot fudge. Store the fudge in an air-tight container in the fridge. 2 days before assembly - make the second ice cream layer and salted caramel. Store the caramel in an air-tight container in the fridge. 1 day before assembly or day of assembly - bake the brownie layers, cool, and wrap in plastic wrap until ready to assemble.
