Adding the Ice Cream Layer
Once you have your carrot cake cooled off, spread the softened vanilla ice cream over the cake as evenly as possible and freeze until firm (about 2 hours).
Topping it Off
Your last step is adding the toppings! Thaw out a tub of cool whip and spread over the top of your frozen cake. Finish by decorating with white chocolate carrots made with white chocolate almond bark and a mold that you can easily purchase on amazon.
Melt white chocolate in a bowl, take out 1/2 cup for the green carrot stems and color the rest of the chocolate orange. Fill the carrot portion of the mold with orange chocolate and the stem portion of the mold with the green chocolate.
Let it set up for 20 minutes, then pop out and place on top of the cool whip layer of your ice cream cake. These cute little decorations bring a touch of whimsy to this classic dessert while also making it look as good as it tastes!
