Ice Cream Sandwiches: Cookie or Cake?

Ok, y'all - HELP. I am catering a wedding reception in a few weeks, and the bride wants homemade heart-shaped ice cream sandwiches. Fine - I can make 100 of those. BUT - recipes seem to vary so widely! Some swear by using an uber-thin chocolate cake to encase the ice cream ("like store bought, but BETTER") and some (like recipes featured here on SE) use crisp cookies. These will be made ahead, and served at the reception. Am I better off with the cake-y recipes?
