Ice Cream Cupcakes
 
Ingredients
  • To make the cake part:
  • yellow cake mix and the ingredients on the box to make cake
  • cupcake liners
  • ¼ cup sprinkles to mix with batter optional
  • Ice Cream:
  • 3 cups of Cake Batter Ice Cream of Choice or make your own using 3 cup of vanilla ice cream mixed with 3 tbsp. of yellow cake mix that has been heat treated [tutorial for heat treating|http://bubblynaturecreations.com/2012/04/not-so-raw-cookie-dough-for-eating.html] and lots of sprinkles
  • Blue Bell makes a cake batter type ice cream called “Krazy Cookie Dough”, Ben and Jerry’s has one, or find a recipe to make your own.
  • For the Whipped Cream Frosting:
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1½ tsp. Unflavored Gelatin
  • 4 tsp. water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put cupcake liners into a muffin tin and measure out 1 Tbsp. of batter into each liner- the batter is only meant to fill the bottom. Bake for about 15 minutes or until they bounce back. Do not take the cupcakes out of the pan.
  2. Once cooled leave the liners and cake inside of the muffin tin and put your softened ice cream on top of the cake until it reaches the top of the liners.Freeze in the freezer until the ice cream is hardened (about 2 hours). Right before serving top with the whipped cream frosting and some sprinkles! Enjoy!
  3. To make whipped cream frosting:
  4. For the whipped Cream Frosting: mix the water and gelatin in a large microwave safe bowl. You will want this bowl to be large because the gelatin will foam up in the microwave. Microwave on high for about 20 seconds or until all the gelatin is dissolved. Let the gelatin cool off to a lukewarm temp before adding it to the cream, but don’t let it get cold because it will become a gel. Meanwhile with an electric mixer whip the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla on high or until thickened. Add the gelatin to the whipped cream slowly and beat on high until the whipped cream forms stiff peaks.

{Cake Batter} Ice Cream Cupcakes!

So this week I made the best cupcakes that I have ever tasted.  Ice Cream Cupcakes!  They would be perfect to serve at a birthday party.  How easy would it be to make these ahead of time and then just hand them out to guests?  Instead of spending time scooping out ice cream and slicing cake… just take them out of the freezer, top with whipped cream frosting  and serve!  I made these even better by making them with Cake Batter Ice Cream… simply wonderful!!!  Top it off with a generous serving of sprinkles of course! ;)

You can make these with any variety of ice cream/ cake combinations.  I made mine using Yellow Cake mixed with Sprinkles,  Cake Batter Ice Cream with Sprinkles, and  Whipped Cream Frosting.  They were WONDERFUL!  I am pretty sure that you can’t go wrong with this combination!

Believe me when I say that you NEED to make these!!

  51. Hi, I can’t wait to make these for a BBQ! Question- did you use cupcake liners? Thanks!
  52. These look so delicious I’m making them right now with some modifications(allergies) I repinned as well. Thanks:)
  53. I made these for my daughter’s birthday,they were a hit and so very easy to make, THANKS!!!
  54. How many comments? And not ONE person has actually tried MAKING them? Let’s get some actual experience here…SHEESH
  55. These look so delicious! I am hoping to make them for a family party but I’m worried that the cake will be very frozen and hard when you serve them. Any thoughts or tips? Did you let the cupcakes sit out to thaw a little before serving them?
  56. I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION, HOW DID YOU GET THE ICECREAM IN THE CUPCAKE?
    • I set the ice cream out and let it soften, then I spooned it in the cupcake
    • The ice cream is technically not “inside” the cupcake.. the ice cream just sits on top of the 1/4 inch already baked cupcake inside the liner. Hope that helps.
  57. Thanks guys!
  58. I was thinking about doing the same thing when I started up my cupcake business. I wondered how’d it work, though. Thanks a ton for figuring it out for me! Lol, How do you get the ice-cream to be the same size and smoothness of the cupcake though? Just try to shape it with a knife?

    Thanks!

    • My ice cream was soft since it came straight from the ice cream maker. If using store bought I would let it sit for a few minutes before putting it in. I froze them inside the metal muffin tin to ensure there was no ice cream spillage.
  59. Christiana :
    Looks ahhhhmazing and got 23 repins off Pinterest!
  60. Hi. I’m making these for a bday Friday. How long before the party starts should I take them out of freezer??? Thanks. Can’t wit
    • Hi Kelly! I would wait until you serve them to take them out of the freezer. Since they are ice cream they melt pretty readily. Hope they work out for you. Everyone loves these!
  61. Hi there,
    just wondering if I could keep them in the freezer for 8-10 hours instead of 2, while I’m at work- and serve them after that?
    • You can leave them in there for up to a week if you want… just take em out and put the whipped cream on and they should be fine. 2 hours is just the minimum to make sure they are solid before serving!
  62. These look absolutely delicious!!! What a fun way to eat a cupcake! I am doing a birthday party round-up on my blog today and have included your cupcakes on the list! Feel free to check it out!

  63. Is there a way to freeze the cupcakes with the whipped cream on top? I would love to have everything ready before hand so I don’t have to add it during my holiday party. Or does freezing the whipped cream ruin the texture?
    • you might be able to use cool whip that way, but I don’t think that whipped cream would stand the freezer.
  64. Donya Cooks :
    Do you sell these in Chicago?
  65. This says 1/2 powdered sugar.. But 1/2 of what?
  66. So cute! How did you get the whipped cream so pretty on top?
  67. Hi Rachel, like you I love all things with a creative nature, be it baking or crafting. Your ice cream cupcakes look just amazingly scrumptious. Can’t wait to try them. Thank you so mt uch for being such a nice person who shares her creativity with the world. I live in Australia. I have a website but it is not current at the moment. How can I share pictures of cakes I make with you?
    Best always
  68. Can you make the whipped frosting in advance and keep it in the fridge till they are ready to serve?
  69. Superb, what a website it is! This web site provides useful information to us, keep it up.
  70. These look great! One question..is the cake good frozen? I know it has to be put on the freezer for the ice cream. So that means the batter will also freeze. Does it still taste good?
  71. Does the cake taste okay frozen? I am assuming the batter would freeze when freezing the ice cream…so is it ok frozen?
