How to make Homemade Birthday Cake Ice Cream:
You’re going to love how easy it is to make this birthday cake ice cream at home.
- First, we’re going to start with the ice cream base. You’ll need an electric mix for this part.
We’re whipping the heavy cream, dry cake mix and powdered sugar together to get our birthday cake flavor base going.
- Then it is time for the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla
Once you’ve added those crank that mixer up to high and whisk that mixture for about 5 -10 minutes or until stiff peaks form.
- Don’t walk away!
Don’t leave it and walk away if you’re using a stand mixer because you might forget about it and then you’ll end up with sugar butter.
- To add a bit more birthday cake flavor, we’re whisking in lots of rainbow sprinkles.
Be sure to save a few to sprinkle on top of the ice cream.
If you’re worried about there being too many sprinkles in the ice cream, you can always add about 1/2 of what the recipe calls for and save the extras for sprinkling on top once the ice cream is frozen and scooped out.
- Getting it ready to freeze.
Spoon mixture into loaf pan, smooth it out with a spatula if needed and sprinkle rainbow sprinkles over top of the ice cream.
- Wrap it up!
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for several hours or overnight until frozen
Once it is frozen, just scoop it out and enjoy it alone or with a side of birthday cake!
