Birthday Cake Ice Cream



As we weren't throwing a party for Amelia's birthday this year I didn't see much point in making a huge cake as we're not really big cake eaters to be honest so I thought it would only go to waste. Of course you cant have a birthday without some sort of cake so I decided to make a few birthday treats for Amelia instead as I still wanted her to experience the birthday feeling! I decided on ice cream and pancakes as they are both pretty easy to make and I thought I could include cake into them both. Keep an eye out for a post coming up over the next couple of days for the Cake Batter Birthday Pancakes!


The Ice cream mixture is so easy to make, of course i'm lazy so didn't make the ice cream but it works just as well. You only need a few ingredients and it doesn't take long to make at all - perfect for birthday parties. I would recommend prepping it the night before just so the ice cream can harden for longer as it makes it easier to scoop out when serving. 

Ingredients

Vanilla Ice-cream (Any flavour will work)
Buttercream icing (You can make this if you like but I used shop bought)
Colouring if your desired colours
Cake mix (You can also make this too but I bought a cheap packet from the supermarket)
Confetti sprinkles or 100's of 1000's
Ice cream tubs 


1. To begin take your ice cream out of the freezer and allow to soften up a bit. Whilst this is melting prepare your other ingredients and cut your cake into small bite-size pieces.

2. Either make your buttercream or prepare from a tub and tint to your choice of colour(s) I ended up using pink however I did want to use light pink and mint green but the green didn't turn out too well. You can use as many different colours as you like however i'd recommend sticking to two or three.

3. Next, in a large mixing bowl mix in dollups of icing into the ice cream but be careful not to over-mix otherwise you'll end up with one big mess. 

4. Add in your cake and stir some more only a few times should do and add the sprinkles. ( I mixed it up too much so you can't really see the colours that well and didn't have time to make another batch before her birthday so it had to do. However I've made it a few times before and it's best to let the ice cream melt a lot and then let the cake mix and ice dissolve in themselves rather than stirring as such. 

5. Now pour the mixture back into the carton and then place in the freezer until it hardens and then it's ready to serve!


Who wouldn't want Ice cream on their birthday?
