It’s important that the cake and frosting be frozen in advance. This prevents the cake from getting soggy in the ice cream.
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.
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!
Happy Birthday, Cookie! Hope you have a WONDERFUL Birthday week!
