I'm going to be completely honest with you here, and if you haven't figured this out so far as a Mostly Homemade Mom fan you'll know it now - I'm OBSESSED with desserts that are super easy, but look super impressive. I don't know about your situation right now, but I have 3 little boys, a husband, a house to take care of, and full time at home job to keep and I just don't have time to mess with things that are going to take a while in the kitchen. Can I hear an AMEN?!

I will often find something at my local grocery outlet that I immediately pick up because I just know there's something creative I can use with it. I've used frozen Sara Lee pound cake in quite a few recipes around here, so I snagged it on a good deal just waiting for inspiration.

And this amazing Rainbow Sherbet Ice Cream Cake turned out absolutely perfect! Seriously, the only skill involved is slicing the pound cake and leaving the sherbet on the counter to soften. That's it, I swear! Because the frozen pound cake come packaged in a foil container, you just pack it back into the foil container with the layers of ice cream, and pop it back into the freezer - no other dirty dishes besides the serving plate. 

If you have a kiddo's birthday coming up in your family, I guarantee they would LOVE seeing this come out with candles on top!

Sherbet Ice Cream Cake Recipes

This cake is super easy to customize with your favorite sherbet flavors. I have always had a soft spot for classic orange sherbet, so whichever is your favorite flavor, you could certainly just use all of that flavor instead - you just wouldn't have the rainbow effect. If you try this one, be sure to leave a comment or drop me an email to let me know how it turned out!
