This ice-cream cake recipe was given to me by my hairdresser; women love to chat and what better place than sitting in the chair at a hairdresser getting your hair done! As the saying goes ~  “YOU DO learn something new every day”. I told my hairdresser “I have been coming to you for so many years; you know how many kids I have and you have NEVER told me about this easy peasy to make cake before“? she just laughed.

I seriously wish I had known about this VERY simple cake MANY YEARS AGO as it’s the EASIEST ICE CREAM CAKE IN THE WORLD, hence it was a must to share with the world!

Firstly prepare your dish/tin/cake mould that you wish to freeze your ice-cream cake into.  This recipe works and fits into the Tupperware Jel Ring perfectly.  Otherwise, I suggest you line the container you are using with cling wrap as once the cake is frozen, it will slide out easily.


Only TWO Main Ingredients:

  • 600ml thickened cream
  • 1 tin condensed milk

This recipe is so effective that you can just about add any flavour you wish and you be as creative as you like.


  1. Whip the cream till thick consistency.
  2. Pour in, fold or stir the condensed milk into whipped cream gently and mix thoroughly.
Pour and mix


This is your basic vanilla ice-cream.

Now the fun part ~ ADD WHAT EVER YOU LIKE ~ such as the following:

  • Baileys, Sherry, Tia Maria etc
  • grated chocolate, hazel nuts/almonds etc
  • fresh fruit ~ strawberries, blue berries, wild berries, mango
  • tinned peaches, pineapple, pears, apricots
  • Mars Bars, marshmallows, honey comb, flake, etc
  • ice-cream flavouring ~ chocolate, caramel, strawberry etc
  • Smarties, M&M’S, Maltesers etc
The choices are endless; once the mould is turned out, you can even use the Magic hard Tops ice-cream topping after turning out onto a plate.

Once you try this recipe, you will NEVER buy an supermarket ice-cream cake again.


This is what I used  for this blog post:

I put the chocolate through the food processor/blender

Tupperware Jel Ring


Added a little chocolate


Next ingredient


Made up the basic ice cream recipe and added some more chocolate


Poured into my mould


Added another ingredient



Sealed and put into the freezer over night



Remove from freezer and put some warm tap water into bowl cavity area to loosen the airtight seal (you may need to put water onto the outside of your tin/container you are using too).


Remove the lid, place plate or dish over top and turn over

Gently remove the inner bowl cavity (you may need to wait a little while for the ice cream soften) and push the cake out gently with your fingers.




Now, I have shown you how to make the EASIEST ICE CREAM CAKE IN THE WORLD, I wish to invite you all to create and link your own ice~cream cake creation below.

    This recipe is also great as a slice; line a slice tray with malt biscuits. Make up ‘ice cream’ and add chopped up cherry ripes ( or maltesers or M & M’s or whatever takes your fancy) top with another layer of malt biscuits and freeze. Very yummy!!!!!
    Forgot to mention……cover with foil before freezing.

      ooh and you could do christmas pu one.. soaked fruits in Marsala and orange zest. Then you could light brandy on the top.. ( not sure how long would last before it melted though), might have to try!

    This cake was so easy! I was a bit dubious about the condensed milk; i love it but sometimes it’s just not right and you can taste it in some things. But this was amazing. I used choc biscuit crumbled, dried paw paw and pineapple, mini marshmallows, glace cherries and choc chips. Cant wait to try new flavours. I also like your idea Rebecca. Mmmm! Thank you so much, my 10 year old son was impressed on his birthday.
