Birthday Cake Roll

I don't like birthday cake and ice cream. Not even a temptation to me. But this cake roll? Love it. For my birthday I either want this, or chocolate zucchini cake.

Chocolate cake mix

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream

Make chocolate cake mix as directed on the box. Bake in a jelly roll pan that is lined with foil and sprayed with PAM. Bake for a shorter amount of time because of the different pan (about 15 min).
Let cake cool and then remove from pan by carefully lifting out the foil liner. Line pan with a piece of plastic wrap and replace cake in pan with foil side facing up. Carefully peel the foil from the cake.
Let ice cream soften slightly and slice into ½ inch slices and completely cover the top of the cake with ice cream. Use a spoon dipped in hot water to smooth over top of ice cream and fill in all gaps.

Slowly roll the cake into a roll using the plastic wrap to help you. This takes 2 people.

Leave entire cake roll wrapped in plastic wrap, wrap in foil, and freeze until ready to slice and serve.
