Sno-Ball Surprise

Rating: Not Rated 1 Comment

What's your favorite ice cream flavor? Knowing that the cake is vanilla Duncan Hines Angel Food Cake, let your palate decide. Once the Sno-Ball Surprise is ready, garnish using your imagination.


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Spoon batter into ungreased 3-quart ovenproof bowl. Bake on lowest oven rack 40 to 50 minutes or until cake looks very dry and is firm to touch. DO NOT UNDERBAKE. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Using serrated knife, remove the center of cake, leaving about 1 inch of cake around outside edge; set aside. Gently loosen remaining cake shell from bowl and place on a plate. Line bowl with waxed paper so that edges hang over the edge of bowl. Place cake shell back into paper-lined bowl.
  4. Let ice cream soften slightly. Cut ice cream into 1-inch slices. Layer ice cream in cake shell. Cover and freeze until ice cream is firm.
  5. Remove cake from freezer. Turn upside down on serving platter; carefully remove bowl and paper. Spread whipped topping over entire cake. Sprinkle coconut and chopped peanut candy pieces over topping. Garnish with candies. Return to freezer. Let stand at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Store leftovers in freezer.

This recipe has me confused.... you hollow the cake and fill centre with ice cream? I do not see the cake layer in the picture....
