Frozen "Creamsicle" Cake

I got this recipe on epicurious.com. It looked promising and for the most part it was. The disaster, because there is always a disaster in my kitchen, was with the freezing times. It took a whole 24 hours before this cake was set up nicely in the freezer. But, it was worth the wait.
The picture doesn't look fabulous because it was taken yesterday before it had been frozen all 24 hours. I had a slice tonight and it looked better.
I used orange sherbet and no sugar added vanilla ice cream, but those were my only subs. Here's the nutrition info (from SparkRecipes recipe builder) that include those subs:

¡Lasagna Ole!

1 red pepper, chopped
1 jar salsa, 16 ounces

1 1/2 cups 2% cheddar, divided

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Brown meat with peppers in large skillet, stirring frequently; drain. Stir in salsa, tomatoes and corn; bring to a boil.

Spoon 1 cup meat mixture into bottom of a 13X9 inch baking dish. Top with 4 tortillas, tearing and overlapping as necessary. Spoon half the remaining meat mixture over tortillas; top with ¾ cup cheese. Top with remaining tortillas and meat mixture. Cover with foil.

Bake 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven; uncover. Sprinkle with remaining ¾ cup cheese, let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
