Birthday Cake Ice Cream
This recipe was created for my darling Niki as she loves birthday cake flavor ice cream. Everytime we treat her to ice cream she always wants this flavor, so I thought why not make it at home for her. My effort was well worth it. This ice cream is a delicious concoction of all good things in one. Ice cream, cake and frosting. Which kid would not love it?
I enjoyed making every element in the recipe. It is a perfect treat for anyone who loves these combinations. This is a decadent combination which is loaded with sugar and fat but it is okay to indulge once in a while.
The smile on Niki’s face as she was enjoying the treat said it all. This dessert is perfect for any celebration or occasion. Any kind of ice cream can be used to make this special treat. I have made a simple vanilla ice cream and flavored it with buttercream and vanilla frosting.
Let’s make some yummy ice cream now.
20 minutes +freezing time
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ½ can condensed milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp rainbow sprinkles or any kind
- ½-¾ cup vanilla buttercream frosting
- 1 mug cake
- For frosting:
- 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tbsp heavy cream
- For the mug cake:
- 2 tbsp all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
To make frosting add butter to a bowl and whip using a hand mixer until soft and pale in color, 3-4 minutes. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and slowly mix to make a smooth spreadable consistency. Add heavy cream if needed.
To make the mug cake mix all the ingredients in a coffee mug and microwave for 1 ½ minutes or until set. Keep aside to cool.
In a large bowl add the heavy cream and whip until soft peaks form. This will take about 4-5 minutes.
Add condensed milk, vanilla extract, salt, frosting and mix gently.
Unmold the mug cake and cut into cubes and add to the mixture and mix gently.
Pour into a glass container cover and freeze for 6-8 hours. Serve with more sprinkles on top.
You can always use store bought cakes to make ice cream.
Mix the frosting gently and not completely combine as it is good to have bites of frosting in the ice cream.
If you don’t have heavy cream you can use full fat milk for the frosting to adjust the consistency.
The famous proverb "you are what you eat” as quoted by the French author Anthelme Brillat-Savarin is very true. Food nourishes you from the inside out. Good health is of utmost importance to me. Vegetarianism and Veganism are gaining immense popularity these days. Natural, organic, healthy and homemade is my mantra.
