Something about the holiday season has me instantly craving certain flavors, peppermint being top among them.  This simple, light, yet luxurious dessert will satisfy any holiday craving and will certainly be well received by guests if whipped up for your get-togethers!

Spread another 1/3 of the ice cream mixture.
Place the last section of cake on top.
