Cream butter & sugar


Mixing on low speed, add the eggs one a time. Scrape down the bowl and mix in the vanilla.

Mix in eggs & vanilla


Add half of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Mix in the buttermilk and oil. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Scrape down the bowl to ensure everything is evenly incorporated.

Alternate dry & wet ingredients


Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top with an offset spatula. Bake the cake for about 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes or until the edges begin to pull away form the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Pour cake batter into pan


Allow the cake to cool for a few minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Let the cake cool


Cut the cake into thirds. Place the bottom third cake layer into the pan. Scoop one pint of ice cream on top of the cake layer, and use an offset spatula to smooth it out. Add the middle cake layer, and repeat with the second pint of ice cream. Add the top cake layer, then wrap the pan in plastic wrap and freeze overnight.

Assemble cake & freeze


Just before serving the cake, make the mascarpone frosting. In a medium bowl, add the heavy cream, mascarpone, and sugar. Use an electric mixer to beat on low-medium speed until thick, smooth, and stiff peaks form.

Make the frosting


Remove the ice cream cake from the pan, and place on a serving platter. Spread the mascarpone frosting on top of the cake, then crush some Oreos on top. Enjoy!
