You may or may not know that Kaia is severely allergic to eggs. The poor girl misses out on a lot of fun food because of it, and when birthdays or celebrations roll around there is only one option: ice cream cake. Since most ice cream cakes from the grocery store contain eggs somewhere, we are stuck ordering a specialty cake that only comes in a few different options whenever we have a celebration, and that gets super pricy. But what are we going to do? Not have cake? No way! So I fork it over and we have the same old flavors every time. Until now.
Why? Because we are changing that with The Curious Creamery Ice Cream Cake Mixes! I totally did more than a little “hooray” when I first heard about this product, and I’ve been wanting to try my hand at it for a while now. Since school just started and we have a lot to celebrate, I thought why not and scooped it up at Walmart the other day. Looks amazing, right? I know. And I wish I could say it were all me, but it isn’t- this cake is magical. Not only is it 100% safe for Kaia, but it has 70% less calories and sugar than its competitors plus it has a third of the fat, calories, and saturated fat of industrial ice cream.
And I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet – there is absolutely NO ice cream churn needed. I must be joking. Right? Nope! I had a little fun in the kitchen for this one, and of course had to make Kaia her very first “proper” cake ever just because. Ingredient and flavor-wise the sky is the limit, and you can mix up your ice cream flavors with almost any type of liquid or mix-ins (alcohol included). The cake box comes with two ice cream packets, and I am saving my second one for later. But for now, check out my super cool celebration cake recipe below!
Confetti Ice Cream Birthday Cake
- Package of The Curious Creamery Ice Cream Cake Mix – Sweet Cream flavor
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 1/8 cup almond milk
- tsp vanilla extract
- A whole lot of confetti sprinkles
- 1 pre-made brownie sheet (any way you want to make/buy it) cut to 1/2 inches high
- 2 springform pans
First, mix your cream, milk, vanilla, and a magical packet from your ice cream mix box in a bowl with a hand blender for 5 minutes.
Next, mix in a boatload of sprinkles. After that, let it sit for a minute while you drop a brownie sheet into the bottom of each springform pan.
Lastly, pour and spread your ice cream over each of your brownies until you have a thick, uniformed layer and pop it in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
Once thoroughly frozen, take them out and loosen your pans, then stack one piece on top of the other so you have four layers. You can totally be done here if you want to, because it’s amazing as-is, but I went a step further because I wanted to go all out. If you don’t want to ice yours, you can drizzle on chocolate for a nice finishing touch.
Kaia’s favorite color is purple, so of course her first official cake had to be purple. I used a simple whipped cream icing here and tinted it with a tiny drop of gel color. Lovely, isn’t it?
I iced it all over, stuck it in the freezer for one more hour, and then went a little crazy with finishing it off. I think it looks absolutely perfect, and Kaia was in love with it!
Nom nom nom! Just look at those layers!
Want to make this for yourself? You should be able to find it in the celebrations aisle of your local Walmart. Here’s a store locator just in case, and if yours doesn’t carry it, you are definitely going to want to have a little talk with a manager about when it will be there!
