Ice-Cream Birthday Cake

My husband asked me to make him an ice-cream cake for his birthday, no sponge just ice-cream! It is probably the easiest cake I have ever made but it felt wrong not baking anything!

Ice Cream Birthday Cake

Ice Cream Birthday Cake


  • 2 Litres Vanilla Ice-Cream

To Decorate:

  • Chocolate Buttons
  • Mini-Smarties
  • Milky Bar Discs
  • Hundreds & Thousands

To Make:

Take the ice-cream out of the freezer to let it soften. Get a 21cm Cake tin and line it with cling film with extra dropping over the edges.

When the ice-cream has softened, spoon it into the lined cake tin pushing down to ensure it fills the tin completely.

Cover completely with cling film and place back in the freezer for at least 4 hours.

Take the ice-cream cake out of the freezer, remove the cling film lid and turn it upside down onto a cake board or plate, then remove the rest of the cling film.

Now the Fun bit! Decorating.

Put the decorating ingredients into separate bowls and tell your child to have fun!

You can either serve immediately or put it back in the freezer, the smarties colouring seeps into the cake to make a cool tie died look.
