Birthday Cake Ice Cream

I love cake and what birthday would be complete without cake AND ice cream?! So I had to put them together. I broke the flavors down and realized that good cake should taste like butter, vanilla and of course frosting. This includes all those flavors (plus sprinkles!) to really make you want to sing happy birthday. Thankfully you don’t need to have a birthday to have this treat!

Birthday Cake Ice Cream
For the ice cream
  1. 2 cups + 2 tablespoons whole milk, separated
  2. 1 1/4 cups heavy cream (or whipping cream)
  3. 3/4 cups sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  7. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  8. 2 tablespoons butter flavoring
For the frosting
  1. 1 stick room temperature butter
  2. 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  3. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  4. 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  5. 2-3 drops food coloring (optional)
  6. 1 tablespoon sprinkles
For the ice cream
  1. In a 5 quart heavy bottomed kettle, whisk together 2 cups milk, cream, sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. While heating, whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons milk and cornstarch.
  3. Allow milk mixture to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in cornstarch slurry. Return to heat until slightly thickened, about 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  4. Once thickened, remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and butter flavoring.
  5. Let cool to room temperature. Place in airtight container and chill at least 8 hours.
  6. Once chilled, freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. (Mine takes about 25 minutes.)
  7. While freezing, prepare frosting (instructions below).
  8. When ice cream is frozen, layer ice cream and frosting in an airtight container. The frosting may harden and clip slightly with the use of butter, but once scooped it will look beautiful! You can also slightly swirl the frosting by using a table knife to mix.
  9. Freeze 4-6 hours before enjoying.
For the frosting
  1. Whip together butter, corn syrup (this will help the frosting stay soft), vanilla and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Add food coloring to desired color and fold in sprinkles.
