Grandma Maggies Ice Cream Cake

Lisa Kain Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

My Grandma used to make this for us, and our favorite was Strawberry cake made with strawberry ice cream and 7 minute icing! Since this cake is dense, I have used it many times to make 'shaped' cakes. The cake pictured is one I made for my boyfriends' mothers 75th birthday. The 7 was white cake with strawberry ice cream and the 5 was chocolate cake with mint chocolate chip ice cream!

  • CAKE:
  • 1 pkg Strawberry Duncan Hines cake mix
  • 1 pint (2 cups) melted ice cream (Strawberry or Strawberry cheese cake)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 can FROSTING
  • or frosting recipe of your choice

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. grease & flour a 9 x 13 baking pan
  3. mix the ingredients with an electric mixer on low for 1 minute. Beat an additional 2 minutes on medium. Pour into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. , approx. 35 min.
  4. Let cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes, then invert onto a cake board or cookie sheet and let cool completely.
  5. I will place the cake in the freezer for about 30 minutes before cutting into the desired shape.
  6. To make the numbers, I choose a font that I liked on my computer , then enlarged it.
  7. I cut the paper numbers into 3 separate pieces, then layed them out on the cake.
  8. I punched holes in the cake with a cake tester ( or you could use a toothpick) all around the paper numbers.
  9. I removed the paper, and with a long, sharp knife, cut along the dotted line. Using the same knife, I then cut the numbers in half horizontally to put a layer of icing in the middle.
  10. I then re-assembled the cake pieces on a cake board into the desired numbers. You can now frost or decorate in any way you choose!

Tips

Sift that mix

Sift that mix

I put the dry mix through my flour sifter before adding the other ingredients. Everyone comments on how light and fluffy my cakes are.


Baking with Soy Milk

Baking with Soy Milk

Whether you are lactose intolerant, a vegan or just don't like milk (me); you can use soy milk for most mixes that call for milk. I have been successful with muffin mixes (Duncan Hines) and pancake mixes using soy milk. Just use the same amount of soy milk as what the recipe calls for in milk. Great taste!
