Ice Cream Sundays: Birthday Cake Ice Cream

This ice cream tastes like a birthday party. It has youth written all over it. I might be too old to eat this ice cream, but I don't care. In August, I'm making it for my birthday.

I might make it sooner and pretend it's my birthday. 

Ice Cream Sundays: Birthday Cake Ice Cream

This birthday cake ice cream tastes like cake batter; frozen, creamy, insanely delicious cake batter. It demands sparklers and sprinkles and laughter. Make it for your 6-year-old daughter's birthday and serve it with pink frosted cupcakes.

The recipe is a bit strange, as far as ice cream recipes go. I adapted it from a pineapple ice cream I made out of Jeni Britton Bauer's Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home. Her ice cream method involves using some unusual (in ice cream) ingredients like corn starch and cream cheese, but it makes the creamiest ice cream EVER. Trust me.
