ice cream cake (with cake!)-help needed.

i know that there have been posts before about ice cream cakes. the thing is, i am looking for an ice cream cake that actually has a layer of real cake in it. the only one i know of is coldstone. anywhere else in the boson area (i am in cambridge) that does this?

  1. I don't know if you have Baskin Robbins in Boston but if so, they add a layer of cake to their Ice cream cakes. Also, many local bakeries do so as well. Try asking your favorite.

    1. If you decide to make it from scratch, this thread discussed the methodology last month:

      Good luck!

        Charl's on Salem ST in Woburn. Made for restaurants so they come pre-sliced but they are fantastic! Choice of Mud Pie or Oreo, both with a layer of chocolate cake on the bottom. Ten large slices per cake and I believe they are $14. Incredible ice cream truffles too (now available in supermarkets) as well as other ice cream/ chocolate covered goodies. Owned by a local family, everyone I've encountered there is friendly, there are always samples. Only open M-F until 4pm. Best deal in town.
