DQ makes a very good ice cream cake, tad expensive, but hey Birthdays are only once a year!

Unfortunately that is the only one I get locally  8^(

I personally really like Carvel Ice Cream cakes. I loooove the little crunchies that they have on the inside! :)

Fudgy The Whale is always great from Carvel.  Been a long time since I had  one though.

Hot Fudge Cake was always a favorite dessert at Shoney's & it is one of my family's desserts.
 
I make a chocolate cake( Duncan Hines in a 9 x 13 pan.   Take a small square of cake, slice it in two, place vanilla ice cream between the cake & top with hot fudge sauce( so easy to make in the microwave), whipped cream & always a cherry on top.

The Cold Stone's Creamery Cakes are a huge indulgence for me.  I've only had them twice.  They are ridiculously good though!

They are ridiculously expensive to buy and very easy to make. Make a thin sheet cake on a cookie pan. Cut into rectangular lengths. Or you can break it up like Carvel does.
Put your favorite ice cream into a mixing bowl and whip it mildly, enough to make it workable. You can use a mold to help as you layer the cake and ice cream. You can make a better one than those guys by adding nuts and fruit or flavored syrup.
I have rolled the whole thing up in the past and made a ice cream Buche de Noel coated with chocolate coating.

Here is what you can do to REALLY impress your friends. Put the whole thing into a bowl shaped mold. Coat it with meringue, set it on fire with your favorite liqueur and you have Baked Alaska.
