Android Ice Cream Sandwich

The above picture was taken with the new android ice cream sandwich phone.

My son had asked for a bunch of space alien shaped gingerbread cookies for his birthday but 2 weeks ago he told me he had to upgrade his birthday treat for a giant ice cream sandwich.
Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe:
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted buttermelted
1/2 cup (100 grams) white granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (65 grams) all purpose flour
1/4 cup (25 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups (2 pints) (950 ml) Ice Cream (any flavor) (Homemade or Store Bought), slightly softened
Melt the butter then add sugar, eggs and vanilla and whisk.  Next add all the dry and whisk.  Spread on a pan and bake approx. 20 minutes rotating after 10 minutes.  Let cool and cut in half then trim to put it in a cake pan.
 Be sure to put a big piece of plastic wrap in the pan before building the ice cream sandwich.  Put one half of the sandwich in the pan then add the ice cream slightly softened.
Smooth the ice cream then add the top piece of the sandwich.  Wrap the cake up and put it inte freezer.  Once the ice cream has frozen take out to decorate.

To get the android color I used the following 3 shades of green and kept adding to the frosting until I got the desired color.

I decorated the cake in the pan then removed it taking the plastic wrap off.
