Upside Down Swiss Roll Ice Cream Cake

This may be the easiest dessert that I have ever made! But it wasn't my idea.  My aunt made it for dessert years ago and when I passed by the swiss rolls at the grocery store it reminded me of this recipe. Since she didn't remember how she made it, I made up my own steps.

Warning: ANYONE can make this ice cream cake! YES, EVEN YOU!

This recipe only calls for 2 ingredients:
-1 box of Swiss Rolls 
-1 litre of melted ice cream  (I chose Chocolate Ripple.)

The other items  you will need are:
-a large bowl
-plastic wrap
-a bread knife
-a spatula
-non stick spray
Line up 3-4 swiss rolls on a cutting board.

Using a bread knife, cut into half inch slices, about 5 per roll. Continue to cut each roll until all rolls are cut.

Line a bowl with plastic wrap so that it hangs over the edges of the bowl. Spray with non stick spray like Pam.

Line the sliced swiss rolls beginning in the center of the bowl until all slices are used, about half way up the sides of the bowl.

Pour the melted ice cream into the bowl.

Use a spatula to even out the melted ice cream.
Wait!  Don't waste all of the crumbs from the swiss rolls.  Sprinkle them onto the bottom of the cake!

Cover cake with plastic wrap and freeze for 24-48 hours.

Remove from freezer. Place a plate or cake plate over the top of the bowl. Flip plate and bowl of ice cream with frozen cake over. Remove the bowl and the plastic wrap and serve!

Hint: ensure that the plate you are using has a lip around the edges to catch any melted ice cream!
What a simple and delicious treat.
