Birthday Cake

While Fall means leaves turning, cozy sweaters, and darker hours for most, it also means birthday season for me. Myself included, I have a family members birthday every two weeks starting in September. That adds up to a lot of cake and a lot of celebration. I thought I would welcome in the season with a birthday cake flavor. I would recommend this flavor with some bubbly.


2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup sugar
Dash of vanilla extract

Generous slice of vanilla cake
0.25 cup sprinkles


In a sauce pan create the base by combining the heavy cream, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract. Warm the mixture on low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Do not boil. Once dissolved, transfer the base into a heat proof container and store in the fridge until cooled.

Once the base has fully cooled (I prefer to cool them overnight), add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions. While it is blending, crumble the cake ( I decided to take the frosting off mine). After the ice cream has taken form, slowly add the cake to the base. Once the ice cream has fully formed, slowly fold in the sprinkles.

Refrigerate for a few hours.

Serve and enjoy!
