18 Best Ice Cream Cakes at Cold Stone
Cold Stone Creamery has been serving creative and decadent ice cream flavors since 1988. And like all other chain ice cream parlors, Cold Stone has a wide selection of ice cream cakes for any special occasion.
Whether you have a birthday, graduation, or just a social gathering, Cold Stone cakes are the perfect end to a party. You can choose a cake from Cold Stone’s signature cake menu or custom order a cake to make it uniquely your own.
However, note that Cold Stone stores need at least 48 hours advance notice if you order a custom cake.
You can order cakes online or directly at the store. Cold Stone ice cream cakes come in five convenient sizes: 4” Petite, 6” Small Round, 8” Large Round, 8”x12” Small Rectangle, and 12”x18” Large Rectangle. However, the petite size is only available at select locations.
With so many delicious options, choosing which cake to have at your event can be hard.
That’s why we’ve rounded up Cold Stone’s signature cakes and highlighted each one’s flavor, texture, and nutritional value.
So, let’s jump right in!
1. Tall, Dark & Delicious
The Tall, Dark & Delicious ice cream was introduced in 2014 as a new Father’s Day creation. After that, it became a favorite among Cold Stone fans and is available all year around.
Cold Stone’s Tall, Dark & Delicious is made with Devil’s Food cake layers, sweet cream ice cream with brownie bites, and chocolate ice cream with crumbled Oreo cookies with creamy white frosting and fudge ganache on top.
We enjoy the mix of sweet cream and chocolate ice cream in this cake. That, and the Oreo cookies and brownie bites mixed in, also gives each slice of cake some crunch.
This cake is made up of ingredients that contain dairy, eggs, soy, and gluten.
A 6” small round Tall, Dark & Delicious cake has 410 calories, 51 grams of carbs, and 38 grams of sugar.
2. Rainbow Sprinkle Road
Rainbow Road might be one of the hardest levels in Mario Kart, but we promise the Cold Stone Rainbow Sprinkle Road is so easy to dive into.
If you have Mario fans in the household, this cake can make any occasion special!
The Rainbow Sprinkle Road cake has two layers of yellow cake, sweet cream ice cream, rainbow sprinkles, and blue frosting.
To top it off, the cake has a colorful road of sprinkles on top with Mario and Luigi.
This cake has layers of sweetness, and the actual cake part of it is moist and flavorful.
The sprinkles melt into the ice cream, so they aren’t as crunchy as they would normally be, but this doesn’t stop the cake from being delicious.
This cake has dairy, egg, soy, and gluten ingredients.
A small round Rainbow Sprinkle Road cake has 410 calories, 54 grams of carbs, and 42 grams of sugar.
3. Cake Batter Confetti
Cold Stone’s cake batter flavor is a favorite among Cold Stone regulars—so, of course, it’s only logical for Cold Stone to make an ice cream cake with it.
The Cake Batter Confetti ice cream cake has layers of red velvet cake, cake batter ice cream, and rainbow sprinkles.
It is also covered with white frosting and topped with dollops of frosting and chocolate-covered wafers.
Not only is this cake mouth-watering, but we also love how it is decorated with neatly placed chocolate-covered wafers on each slice.
It’s also the only other cake on the Cold Stone menu with red velvet, which is another huge plus.

The Midnight Delight has two layers of Devil’s Food cake, fudge, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate shavings.
The cake is wrapped with chocolate ganache with chocolate shavings on the outside and topped with dollops of chocolate cream with a delicately placed milk chocolate and white chocolate wafer on each slice.
The cake part is moist, and altogether this ice cream cake is incredibly rich.
One thing is for sure; chocolate must be your all-time favorite ice cream flavor to fully enjoy it.

The small round size also has 490 calories, 56 grams of carbs, and 45 grams of sugar.
5. Mmmmmmint Chip
It’s no secret that one of America’s favorite ice cream flavors is mint chocolate chip. So, Cold Stone made a delicious and moist ice cream cake out of it!
The Cold Stone Mmmmmmint Chip ice cream combines Cold Stone’s mint chocolate chip ice cream, Devil’s Food cake, chocolate shavings, and white frosting with mint and chocolate cookies on top of each slice.
This cake is refreshingly sweet and is reminiscent of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. We also appreciate how soft and fluffy the cake is.

6. Peanut Butter Playground
Peanut butter lovers, rejoice! Cold Stone’s Peanut Butter Playground ice cream cake is a playground for anyone whose go-to is peanut butter.
With a mix of chocolate and peanut butter, the Peanut Butter Playground has Devil’s Food cake, peanut butter, and chocolate ice cream with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups covered in chocolate ganache.
Chocolate shaving coat the bottom of the cake, and each slice has a sliced Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
Peanut butter and chocolate are a combination that we all know and love.
Though this cake is rich, it has its nice touches—like how the peanut butter cups on top are dipped in a tasty graham cracker mix.
The Peanut Butter Playground ice cream cake has ingredients that contain dairy, eggs, peanuts, soy, and gluten.
The small round cake has 540 calories, 57 grams of carbs, and 44 grams of sugar.
7. Cookie Dough Delirium
Who knew that chunks of raw cookie dough and Cold Stone’s sweet cream ice cream went so well together? The Cookie Dough Delirium is almost dreamlike, and it could make any occasion special.
This ice cream cake has layers of yellow cake, sweet cream ice cream with chunks of cookie dough, white frosting, and chocolate shavings coating the outside of the cake.
It also has chunks of cookie dough on top. With the cookie dough and the ice cream, this cake is sweet.
The cookie dough isn’t exactly gooey either because it’s almost frozen, but it adds some texture to the ice cream.
Cold Stone’s Cookie Dough Delirium has ingredients that contain dairy, eggs, soy, and gluten. The small round size also has around 440 calories, 57 grams of carbs, and 41 grams of sugar
8. Strawberry Passion
Do you love strawberries and everything strawberry-flavored? Us, too. In fact, the Strawberry Passion ice cream cake is one of our favorite cakes to order at Cold Stone Creamery.
The Strawberry Passion features layers of red velvet cake, strawberry puree, strawberry ice cream with graham cracker pie crust, and a graham cracker pie crust around the outside of the cake.
On top, there is strawberry frosting and plump slices of strawberries.
Without a doubt, you need to have a sweet tooth to fully enjoy this cake.
But strawberry puree has such a tasty flavor profile, and we can’t ignore the crunchiness of the graham cracker crust.
This cake has ingredients that contain eggs, dairy, soy, and gluten.
The Strawberry Passion small round cake has about 390 calories, 52 grams of carbs, and 36 grams sugar.
It’s worth noting that this cake has the least calories on our list!
9. Oreos Cookies & Cream Extreme
The extreme version of cookies and cream made it to Cold Stone! The Oreos Cookies & Cream Extreme combines two versions of America’s favorite cookie—the rich, chocolate Oreos and the Golden Oreos.
The cake also has two layers of yellow cake, chocolate ice cream with Golden Oreo crumbles and cake batter ice cream with Oreo cookies.
It’s then wrapped in Oreo ice cream, which is cookies n’ cream, and coated with chocolate sprinkles on the bottom.
We can’t get enough of the Oreos in this cake. We also think that having the Golden Oreos mixed with the chocolate ice cream and the regular Oreos mixed with the cake batter makes this cake’s flavor profile so diverse.
The Oreos Cookies & Cream Extreme has ingredients that contain eggs, dairy, soy, and gluten.
Unlike the other cakes, there isn’t a petite size of the cake. The small round cake has 450 calories, 61 grams of carbs, and 42 grams of sugar.
10. Raspberry Truffle Temptation
If you are looking for a decadent ice cream cake with an elegant touch, look no further than the Raspberry Truffle Temptation ice cream cake.
This cake has layers of red velvet cake and chocolate ice cream with chocolate shavings.
It is also covered in a rich chocolate ganache and topped with raspberries.
The decorations on this ice cream cake are simple yet sophisticated. And if that isn’t reason enough to dive into this cake, then the chocolate mixed with the red velvet cake is rich and moist.
However, we do wish that this cake came with more raspberries and that there was a little more crunch.
The Cold Stone Raspberry Truffle Temptation has ingredients that contain dairy, eggs, soy, and gluten.
This cake has 470 calories, 54 grams of carbs, and 41 grams of sugar.
11. A Cheesecake Named Desire
Dubbed after the classic Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh movie, this cake is also a classic among Cold Stone’s signature cakes.
A Cheesecake Named Desire highlights one of America’s favorite desserts in the best possible.
This cake is made up of layers of yellow cake and cheesecake ice cream with graham cracker pie crust crumbles wrapped in a raspberry frosting.
The bottom has graham cracker pie crust coating it, and it is topped with raspberries as well.
The raspberry frosting is a neat touch to the cake, and the pink accents in the frosting are a beautiful decoration.
We like how the cheesecake element of the cake comes from the ice cream rather than the cake part itself. The cheesecake ice cream is both creamy and rich.
Cold Stone’s A Cheesecake Named Desire contains dairy, eggs, soy, and gluten.
The small round cake has 390 calories, 50 grams of carbs, and 35 grams of sugar.
Cold Stone’s Neapolitan has eight mouth-watering layers of cake and ice cream. There are a variety of flavors in this cake, and none of them overpower one another.
As we mentioned, this cake has eight layers in total! So, this cake is pretty filling.
It’s also one of the few cakes available in one size only—6” square, which serves eight people.
The Neapolitan has strawberry ice cream, chocolate ice cream, sweet cream ice cream, yellow cake, Devil’s Food cake, red velvet cake, fudge, and strawberry puree.
This cake also has multiple toppings, including strawberry frosting and mixed berries, like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. And let’s not forget the graham cracker pie crust coating the outside.
This cake has crunchy, creamy, and fluffy elements. Eight layers, however, is a lot to dig into—so be prepared to share this cake with your loved ones.
It’s no surprise that these eight-layer cakes are heavy in calories, carbs, and sugar.
The Neapolitan has 740 calories, 92 grams of carbs, and 72 grams of sugar. It also contains ingredients that have eggs, dairy, soy, and gluten.
13. Cake Batter Layers
To some, Cold Stone put cake batter ice cream on the map. So, why not have eight layers of cake batter in one cake?
Yes, that’s right. The Cake Batter Layers ice cream cake has eight layers of cake batter ice cream, as well as yellow cake, cookie dough, and chocolate shavings.
It’s also covered in cake batter frosting and has chocolate shavings surrounding the outside of the cake with hot fudge on top.
The cake batter ice cream and frosting might be a little too much, but if this is your favorite ice cream flavor at Cold Stone, this is perfect for you.
In addition, the fudge and the cookie dough get a little overpowered by the massive amounts of cake batter ice cream.
The Cake Batter Layers ice cream cake has 790 calories, 105 grams of carbs, and 78 grams of sugar.
This cake has ingredients that contain dairy, eggs, soy, and gluten.
14. Quilted Coffee Caramel

This Cold Stone creation has layers of Devil’s Food cake, coffee ice cream, caramel, and Heath Bar crumbles.
It also has coffee frosting and caramel topping, with Heath Bar crumbles on the sides of the cake.
Caramel can be an overwhelming flavor, but this cake doesn’t overpower the coffee flavors of the frosting and ice cream.
In fact, the caramel complements it. Likewise, the Heath Bar crumbles are made up of almonds, toffee, and milk chocolate, which also goes well with the coffee flavors.

The Coffee House Crunch is made up of coffee ice cream with Heath Bar crumbles and Devil’s Food cake, covered in fudge ganache and topped with graham cracker-covered Heath Bars.
This cake is reminiscent of your local coffee house with not only the taste but the smell as well.
We love how this cake also features Heath Bars—who knew that they would go so well with coffee flavors?
The fudge ganache with the coffee ice cream might be too rich for some, but we can still guarantee that this cake was created with coffee lovers in mind.
The Coffee House Crunch ice cream cake has ingredients that contain dairy, egg, soy, tree nuts, and gluten.
The small round cake has 560 calories, 65 grams of carbs, and 52 grams of sugar.

The Chocolate Chipper has layers of Devil’s Food cake and sweet cream ice cream with chocolate shavings.
It’s topped with fudge ganache and white chocolate chips and has chocolate shavings on the outside.
This cake is decadent, and we love how it combines Cold Stone’s sweet cream and chocolate fudge.
It’s not too chocolatey, not too sweet—it’s just right. Another thing we enjoy is the texture the chocolate shavings add. However, we just wish there were a few more chocolate chips.

The Rich & Dreamy cake is made up of layers of Devil’s Food cake, yellow cake, and sweet cream ice cream with chocolate shavings.
It has chocolate frosting on top with fudge ganache. The cake’s centerpiece is an assortment of Kit Kats, Oreos, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
You may have to fight your loved ones for the candy on top, but the slices of cake don’t really need it.
