    I swear to you, this tastes like the Birthday Cake Ice cream at Cold Stone Ice Cream Parlor... my girls love it on angel food cake.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 -2 cup whipping cream
    • 1 (18 ounce) package cake mix, any flavor (I prefer white)


    1. 1
      Use 1/2 the cake mix.
    2. 2
      Pour into bowl and with electric beater, mix until most lumps are gone.
    3. 3
      Pour in whipping cream.
    4. 4
      Start with 1 cup, add more as needed.
    5. 5
      This can get very thick fast, so just add more whipping cream until you reach desired spreading consistency.
    6. 6
      This is wonderful on angel food cake.
    7. 7
      Just add sprinkles-- For a great variation-- use chocolate cake mix, mix as directed, stir in mini marshmallows, slivered almonds and chocolate chips for a rocky road frosting.
    8. 8
      better yet, rocky road"mousse" as my girls lovingly refer to it.
    9. 9
      They beg me to make this to eat out of the bowl.

      We only like homemade frosting but I was curious to try this. The whole family hated it. It has a strong flour-like pasty taste. Definately do not recommend.

      I've been wanting to try this for awhile; I made it recently for a birthday cake & everybody raved :) I used an entire cake mix (yellow butter) & 2 cups of whipped cream- I also threw in a tsp. of vanilla & the kids LOVED it. I"ll be trying different variations, but this recipe is a gem. Thanks for a definite keeper

      We really enjoyed this frosting particularly the consistency but when using a a white cake mix it wasn't quite sweet enough. To sweeten things up I added 1/4 cup of icing sugar and for us it was perfection. Thanks for the recipe definitely part of the rotation. I can't wait to try different flavors!
