With this creamy, sweet No Churn Birthday Cake Ice Cream, you can have your cake, and your ice cream too!
In honor of May being my birthday month, I thought I’d share a fun birthday recipe idea with you! I made this no churn ice cream in anticipation for my birthday week and it’s so yummy!
No churn ice cream is super simple -just swirl a few ingredients together in a bowl and freeze. No special equipment needed! The base is whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk, or you can use a non-dairy whipped topping like I did here. I’ve made it both ways, and either way it’s incredibly creamy and delicious.
I was thinking up birthday cake ideas while grocery shopping the other day, but I wasn’t in a real “let’s eat cake” kind of mood. I always peek at the discounted bakery shelf and today there was a package of mini cupcakes marked at just 50 cents. That was just the inspiration I needed! It jumped in my cart along with a other few ingredients.
Since it’s my birthday, I pretty much get to make whatever dessert I want. I’m kind of in love with this whole no church ice cream thing so it was a no-brainer. I mixed the softened Tru Whip (I prefer this brand to the other stuff) with the sweetened condensed milk and them chopped up the cupcakes (I removed the sprinkles and part of the frosting – but not all of it) and stirred them in plus a bunch of rainbow sprinkles.

The ice cream really needs at least 4-5 hours in the freezer in order to set completely and reach optimum deliciousness. It doesn’t take long to soften so you can practically serve it right out of the freezer.
You are going to love this No Churn Birthday Cake Ice Cream – it takes just like an ice cream cake! I used yellow cake, but you could use chocolate cake, white cake, or even red velvet! It’s the perfect birthday dessert that you don’t have to bake.
