  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup yellow cake mix


  • In a mixing bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Blend in sweetened condensed milk and cake mix until completely smooth/dissolved.
  • Pour into loaf pan, freeze 2+ hours and enjoy!


  • Whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. This is easiest to do in a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. You can do it by hand but it will take a little while longer, athough it's good for the arms!
  • I love this ice cream with yellow cake mix, but you can use funfetti or a white cake mix if that's what you have. I'm pretty sure you could use different flavours with success too like chocolate or lemon. 
  • Be sure to mix the ingredients together really well so that everything is well combined with no lumps. I find a stand mixer to be the most effective, but you can mix by hand if you don't have one.
