Ice Cream Cake:


Brownie Preheat oven to 325°F; line bottom of 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving overhang on two long sides. Grease parchment paper.


In large bowl, using electric mixer on high speed, beat butter with eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth, about 2 minutes. On medium speed, beat in cocoa powder, flour and salt until smooth. Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan; bake until brownie pulls away slightly from edges of pan and cake tester inserted in centre of brownie comes out with just a few crumbs clinging, 35 to 40 minutes (do not overcook). Let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 1 day.)


Ice Cream Cake Line 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving overhang on two long sides. Spread mint ice cream over bottom of pan, smoothing with spatula. Top with cookies, cutting them if necessary to cover surface. Spread chocolate ice cream over cookies, smoothing with spatula. Place cooled Brownie on top, pressing lightly. Fold plastic wrap tightly over top, pressing lightly. Freeze in pan for at least 6 hours.

Assembly In bowl, using electric mixer on high speed, beat cream until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Beat in icing sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, and the cream of tartar, if using, until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Transfer to refrigerator.


Using plastic wrap as handles, invert Ice Cream Cake onto serving plate; remove plastic wrap. Cover cake with whipped cream, smoothing top and sides. If desired, spoon remaining whipped cream into pastry bag fitted with wide, round or fluted tip and pipe peaks or zigzags on top of cake to decorate. Place on plate, uncovered, in freezer for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving. Freeze in airtight container for up to 6 months.
