Today I am delighted to present to you the recipe for Birthday Cake Ice Cream from Scooped: Ice Cream Treats, Cheats, and Frozen Eats. If you visit Southern Kissed regularly, you will recall a couple of recent posts about the cool cookbook published by Southern Living. I was permitted to share with you recipes for Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream Pie, Mississippi Mudslide, and now Birthday Cake Ice Cream.
I made the recipe for Birthday Cake Ice Cream twice. The first time I was impatient and could not wait to try it. That was a mistake on my part and I learned that doing it right pays off.
A little too soon.
However, after my first trial I decided to modify the way that I make it. The recipe as printed says to “…fold in cake, frosting, and sprinkles.” I found that when I put the icing in it was too clumpy. My solution for the problem was to cut the pound cake into thin slices, put a thin layer of frosting on each slice, and then cut into small cubes. This was a good way to keep from having too much frosting in any one particular bite of ice cream.
Even though I rushed through my first try, my son absolutely loved the ice cream creation and actually requested that I make it like that more often. Um, no. I like it better when the time is taken to do it correctly.
