Love homemade ice cream?

You’ve gotta try making birthday cake ice cream that tastes super similar to the popular Cake Batter flavor from Cold Stone Creamery! This happens to be a family favorite ice cream flavor, so I was very excited to try this DIY version, and I am happy to report back it tastes AMAZING!

ingredients and ice cream maker

The secret ingredient is cake mix!

The yellow cake mix combined with the rainbow sprinkles is the perfect mix in for this ice cream! It really adds the crave-able cake-like flavor. The end result is an incredibly delicious, rich, and creamy ice cream your family will flip for! 🙌

Hip Tip: There have been some concerns that eating raw cake batter can make you sick. While we haven’t experienced any issues, do what feels right for you and for your family, and absolutely ask a doctor for his or her medical opinion.

Fact: I’m in LOVE with my new ice cream maker!

While any ice cream maker will work for this recipe, let me tell ya about mine. I decided to get the Whynter 2.1 Qt ice cream maker after hearing about how much Collin loves hers, and OMG it’s fantastic! I mean there’s no more salt, or ice, or freezing a bowl first like the ones I used to have. This baby has a built-in compressor and is so fast and easy to use. You can have homemade ice cream in about 30 minutes, and I, too, now share Collin’s ice cream excitement!!

    This looks luscious! I’ll probably substitute frozen blueberries for the sprinkles since they are in season now. Thanks for sharing Lina.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! Thanks Bunny 👍

  2. KMHL

    My daughter made this two weeks ago! Very Yummy!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ice Mom

    Looks SOOO good. I am jealous. My husband put me on kitchen gadget time out. LOL

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh haha I can relate to that so much! Thanks so much

  4. motherfish

    Uh….no. Didn’t we learn a lesson about a year ago with the e.coli in the flour recall that also affected some boxed cake mixes? The company said it can happen again, because flour is an unpasteurized “product of the field”, and they don’t plan to make any changes as far as heat treating flour. The lesson? Don’t eat raw flour!!!!

    • hellfiregainz

      motherfish, Yes!!! Common misconception. its rarely the eggs, its the raw flour that is dangerous.

    • Tina

      I came here to say the same thing. You should never eat raw flour and freezing doesn’t kill E. Coli.

    • StephB

      Been eating cake batter all my life…lol🤷🏻‍♀️😂

      • Daniela

        Yep, still alive. I buy cookie dough specifically to eat it raw.

        • tipaye

          Me, too 😂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks and For anyone concerned maybe consider using a cake batter extract instead if preferred —> https://amzn.to/2uPLK2o

      • motherfish

        Wow! Never heard of such a thing – fun!

      • s

        Has anyone used the cake batter extract? I’m nervous to use raw mix but extract sounds too good to be true. I read you can microwave flour to kill bacteria… maybe microwave the mix? Wondering if anyone has any ideas.

    • M

      People can also heat treat it at home before mixing it in the ice cream. It’s fairly simple to do.

    • Stacy

      You can microwave the mix to kill the bacteria. It’s simple and very effective.

  5. Keesh

    This looks yummy iam definitely going to try this

  6. StephB

    I made some of this a couple of weeks ago for my birthday!! Love all things cake batter!! It’s AMAZING!!!

  7. DealLovinMama

    You may want to put a warning in the recipe for those who don’t read the comments. I would hate for those who aren’t aware to get sick. It could also be a liability for Hip2Save.

  8. Kristina

    I love the recipes you have shared on your site! I hope to try this one soon!! Yum!

    Just a little tip, to make this easier to share on Pinterest and get it seen more, a vertical image is definitely more visually appealing : ) And easier seen!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Kristina!

    Risk is always relative. If you ever eat sushi, hollandaise, or burgers/steaks that aren’t well-done then you’re also taking a risk w/ food-borne illness. To each their own. :shrug:

    • Cheryl

      Just do a gluten free cake mix- what I have to do…..

  10. Christy

    I need a keto version of this— I have a blood sugar disorder but I really miss cake batter flavored treats!

  11. s

    Can you post your favorite regular ice cream recipes too? Please!

  12. jeanette

    It’s not safe to consume raw flour, it needs to be baked first to kill off any bacteria. There are many ways to do this with a simple google search. Basically you just place the raw flour on a baking sheet and bake it (don’t know at what temp or for how long, but google has all the info), then just cool it and you can use it.

    • Stacy

      You can microwave it too!

  13. R

    Can’t wait to try this! Cake batter flavor at Coldstone is our family’s favorite and we were just griping the other day about how crazy expensive Coldstone is when we go out as a family. Thanks! Going to surprise the husband 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’ll love this! Enjoy 😉

  14. OregonLexy

    Yay perfect for my birthday 🎂 tomorrow 😊

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Happy birthday, OregonLexy!

  15. So confused

    Do you make the cake batter according to the box? Or just use the dry mix?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      In this case we are using the dry mix to flavor the ice cream. Hope that helps! 🙂

  16. Suzanne

    How to heat treat raw flour: Simply spread two cups of flour on a baking sheet or Silpat, and bake for about 5 minutes at 350° F. Let cool completely. Then use the flour in your preferred recipe.

    • s

      Thank you!

    • OregonLexy

      THANKS!

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        You are welcome!

  17. Corina

    My daughter’s most missed ice cream since going dairy free… has anyone made an “ice cream” dairy free and yummy? Just curious… (Non allergic, dairy free for autoimmune).

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I haven’t tried yet but you can use coconut milk from the can or almond milk, or a mix of both. I read that Almond Dream milk is thicker for a nice texture 👍
