This dessert is like an orange creamsicle in cake form, with a sugar cookie crust and a lemony whipped cream frosting.


Ice Cream Cake:

Lemon Whipped Cream Frosting:


  1. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and line the bottom with a parchment paper circle.
  2. Cover the bottom of the prepared pan with the sugar cookies. Spread the marshmallow creme on top of the cookies. Scoop the sherbet and frozen yogurt onto the marshmallow layer, packing it in tightly and alternating the scoops to create a marbled or checkerboard effect. Spread with an offset spatula to make a smooth top. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  3. Unmold the cake by running a knife around the edge of it, then unhinge the springform and remove. Invert the cake onto a sheet of plastic wrap and remove the bottom of the pan and the parchment. Place a plate on the bottom and invert once more.

For the lemon whipped cream frosting:

  1. Add the heavy cream, lemon curd, confectioners' sugar and vanilla to a large bowl and whip with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. (This makes enough frosting to cover the top and sides of the cake with additional to pipe decorations if desired.)
  2. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the lemon whipped cream frosting and sprinkle with the almonds. If the cake begins to get too soft, put it back into the freezer for a few minutes.
  3. Freeze another 1 1/2 to 2 hours or up to overnight. Before serving, let the cake sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
