I loved how easy this Amaretto cake was to put together and it doesn't look bad either! It sure does taste wonderful! I bet you could use all sorts of different liqueurs and ice cream combos or even just add syrups and fruits. Very versatile cake recipe, can be used and decorated for any occasion.

With a sharp serrated knife, using a
sawing motion, cut the cake into 3 layers. Sprinkle each layer with 3
tablespoon of the Amaretto. Place one layer onto serving platter. Cut ice
cream into slices, place pistachio ice cream onto bottom cake layer. Top with
second cake layer and a layer of strawberry ice cream. Top with third cake
layer. Place cake into freezer. In a bowl, mix heavy cream and remaining Amaretto, beat until very thick.
