Few things in life are sweeter than birthday cake and ice cream, but imagine combining both to create a concoction you’ll want to triple on your next waffle cone. You can have your cake and eat it (in ice cream form), too.

Mini Birthday Cake Ice Creams Cakes

Sometimes less is more – and adorable. Next time you whip up an ice cream cake to please party guests, consider serving individual mini cakes. The personal cakes can last for several weeks in your freezer, making it a convenient, make-ahead option.

What You Need

How to Make It

  1. Remove the pint of Braum’s Birthday Cake ice cream from the fridge and let it sit out for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. While the ice cream softens, place a sleeve’s worth of Gold Oreos into a plastic gallon freezer bag. Close the bag securely and make sure no air is trapped. With a rolling pin, gently crush the cookies into small, pea-sized crumbs.
  3. Take the softened ice cream and spoon it into the individual cups of a silicon muffin pan. Flatten the top of the ice cream in the cups with a small spatula. Before the ice cream softens too much, sprinkle the Oreo crumbs to create a cookie layer on top of the ice cream.
  4. Cover the filled muffin tins with foil or parchment paper and allow the pan to freeze overnight.
  5. When ready to serve, invert the silicone cups and wiggle out the ice cream cakes. Place on individual plates or bowls and allow guests to top their cake with hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, or sprinkles.

Make It Your Own

  • Experiment with your favorite Braum’s ice cream flavors. Substitute with classics like chocolate and vanilla, seasonal flavors like Braum’s Egg Nog ice cream, or even sherbet.
  • You can play with the crumb layer, too! Try Oreos, brownies crumbs, or your favorite candy.


Birthday Cake Ice Cream Terrine

A terrine is a box-shaped dish that you slice to serve. A terrine can be used for savory foods to make a main dish, but — clearly — we think this food is a dish best served cold.

What You Need

How to Make It

  1. Start with your carton of Birthday Cake Ice Cream. Spoon about two-thirds of the carton into a bowl, and allow it to soften. (Put the carton with the rest of the ice cream back in the freezer. You’re going to want to eat it later, probably after your children have gone to bed.)
  2. Spoon about one-third of the vanilla out of the carton to soften, and put the rest of it back in the freezer to be enjoyed another day. Or later today. Whatever. We get it.
  3. Cut two sheets of plastic wrap, each about 18 inches long. Lay one sheet into the pan long-ways, and lay the other on top, short-ways across the pan. Let the extra plastic wrap rest over the sides. You should have excess plastic wrap on each of the four sides of the pan.
  4. Now, take about half of that softened Birthday Cake Ice Cream and spread it in the bottom of the loaf pan.
  5. Sprinkle in the Braum’s Pound Cake pieces and the sprinkles.
  6. Put the loaf pan in the freezer to set. It should be firm in about 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Take the pan out and layer in the Vanilla Ice Cream. Sprinkle in more Pound Cake and sprinkles. Return it to the freezer to set, again for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. Take the pan out and layer in the rest of the Birthday Cake Ice Cream.
  9. Fold over the plastic wrap to bundle up the terrine. Put pan in the freezer to set for at least an hour.
  10. To serve, unmold the terrine from the loaf pan onto a platter. Slice it like bread and enjoy!

Birthday Cake Ice Cream Milkshakes

These milkshakes will bring everybody to your yard. Proceed with caution.

What You Need

  • 1 carton of Braum’s Premium Birthday Cake Ice Cream
  • ¼ to ½ cup of Braum’s milk of your choice (we recommend whole milk!)
  • Blender
  • 2 large glasses for serving
  • Whipped cream topping
  • Waffle cones crumbled into sprinkle sized pieces
  • Bendable straws (optional, but do it.)

How to Make It (Makes two servings)

  1. Scoop a pint’s worth of Braum’s Birthday Cake ice cream (about 4 or 5 large scoops) into a blender.
  2. Pour in milk and cover blender with lid.
  3. Blend the ice cream and milk on a medium setting. If mixture is too think, stop blender and add additional milk (be careful not add too much as the mixture might become runny.) Blend until ice cream is smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into tall, chilled glasses. Top with whipped cream and waffle cone sprinkles and serve.

Make It Your Own
