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 am happy to report back it tastes AMAZING!

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! 🙌

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 is dangerously DELISH, and my family enjoyed this so much! What a fun and EASY ice cream flavor to make. I bet you could even try other flavor cake mixes, too, and get creative. Enjoy!

    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

    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🤷🏻‍♀️😂

    • 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!

    • M

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

  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:
