My birthday was Sunday, and I love ice cream cake, but I haven't been able to enjoy any for a while. Ben & Jerry's is my new hero. See, the Dairy Queen, Carvel, and Maggie Moo's cakes all have a cookie crumble or cake layer or both. Ben & Jerry's allows you to have a gluten-free cake.
You have two options: 1. All ice cream or 2. Bring in your own filling, such as cookies or brownies.
Then you place a special order. The Ben & Jerry's that I visited had a binder at the counter that listed all the gluten-free ice creams. I chose Phish Food and Vanilla, chose my cake style from the catalog, and handed over my brownies. The clerk wrote "GLUTEN-FREE - USE CUSTOMER BROWNIES" in the special instructions. Even better: we got a $3 discount for bringing in our own brownies.
I came back a day and a half later to pick it up, and it looked good! It tasted good too. As you can see in the picture below, there are two layers of brownie or cookie alternated with two layers of your choice of ice cream. I chose the chocolate frosting, but there is vanilla as well.
