How to make an ice cream cake

How do you make ice cream look like this , like a cake , well its easier than I thought , that's for sure. Tomorrow I will add a hibiscus drawn on with piping gel as well as a personal birthday message.
Lets go backwards if you will , if you were wondering what was under that generous layer of frosting , well a thin layer of chocolate ice cream , then a cookie crumb layer followed by a fudge layer and then a generous layer of vanilla ice cream .
So here is your shopping list, a container of vanilla ice cream ,a container of chocolate ice cream , a box of Christie's chocolate biscuits , a jar of sundae fudge , a tub of cool whip , and two containers of white whipped vanilla Betty crocker frosting , approx cost $15.00 to $18.00

I folded the two containers of frosting with the cool whip to create a light frosting.

The top layer is the vanilla the majority of the "cake" is vanilla ice cream filled right to the top of the 10 inch spring form pan, I then put it in the freezer for about 6 hours and then frosted it with the frosting mixture of cool whip and frosting , and then chilled it for 30 more minutes before piping on lots of fluffy frosting .

A whole jar of chocolate fudge.

A layer of crushed chocolate biscuits .

First layer of chocolate about an inch thick.

I let the ice cream soften quite a bit , about 30 minutes.

I used saran wrap as a barrier just to keep things easy when releasing the cake .
Is that as clear as mud for you ? Sorry about the backwards , its been a long day .
