    Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Mother-In-Law!
    Happy Birthday Grandma Cookie!
    (BTW – Cookie really is her nickname. It’s not just for the blog.)

    I made her favorite! Birthday Cake Ice Cream – a.k.a. – Cake IN the Ice Cream!
    Well, I don’t really know if it’s her favorite, but she loves cakes, she loves frosting and she LOVES ice cream.
    So I figured, it couldn’t get any better if I were to combine all them into one great dessert!
    I saved some edges from a cake I used for cake pops. I broke up the cake into chunks and froze them.
    I also had a 2 cups of frozen butter cream that I cut into chunks.
    I made my basic Vanilla Ice Cream and tinted it blue (per my daughter’s insistence).
    As I transferred the  ice cream into a container, I added in some frozen butter cream and cake pieces and rainbow jimmies.

    It’s important that the cake and frosting be frozen in advance. This prevents the cake from getting soggy  in the ice cream. 

    Once the containers were filled they went into the freezer overnight to harden.
    The next day, I made some quick ganache with some chocolate chips and cream and made some whipped cream.
    Put them together and – Voila! – top it off with a cherry!

    1. Wow this looks amazing! I love that you incorporated the cake and frosting into the ice cream. I love making homemade ice cream but have never thought to add anything except fruit or chopped up cookies. Now I know I am going to be adding cake too 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday this week. I can't wait to see what you link up next week. Have a wonderful weekend.


    2. This is wonderful — looks just like the Coldstone version, but even better. Definitely a useful tip about freezing the cake and frosting pieces beforehand. I never would've thought of that.

    3. Hi Karyn,
      What a special birthday! Thank you so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you have a great week and come back soon!
