Birthday cake ice cream sandwiches are a fun dessert for all ages! Ice cream is sandwiched between two sprinkle sugar cookies for an easy homemade treat.
Tomorrow is my birthday! To celebrate my special day, I made birthday cake ice cream sandwiches. They are an easy and fun dessert to make no matter how old you are turning!
Every year I make a festive dessert that always includes sprinkles. I’ve made baked birthday donuts, funfetti cake dip, no-bake birthday cake truffles (just to name a few). And this year is no different. These ice cream sandwiches are covered in sprinkles!
They looked so good even Hudson wanted a bite 😉 Instead he got homemade dog treats.
When it comes to dessert, I am legit like a child. My two favorite sweets are cookies and ice cream. Yeah, cheesecake is good and I like the occasional key lime pie, but I like good ole fashioned sweets.
Maybe it’s the nostalgia, or maybe it’s because I can’t say no to ice cream… when that creamy dessert is sandwiched between two cookies, my mouth starts watering. Hand over the ice cream sandwich!
Birthday cake ice cream sandwiches are super easy to make. I used my sprinkle sugar cookie recipe and simply sandwiched vanilla ice cream in the center. It’s amazing what a difference homemade cookies make in ice cream sandwiches!
These cookies are chewy and packed with the best flavor. The recipe calls for a whole tablespoon of pure vanilla extract, an egg yolk and rainbow sprinkles—all the key ingredients for birthday cake flavor.
If you have a good ice cream shop nearby, I suggest getting ice cream there. Just like the cookies, homemade ice cream makes a world of difference. I used classic vanilla in my ice cream sandwiches, but you if you are a big lover of cake batter flavor, spring for the birthday cake ice cream.
On birthdays you should indulge in the very best dessert so make that ice cream extra creamy. And the more sprinkles the better!
One vital step in making homemade ice cream sandwiches is to freeze the cookies before sandwiching ice cream in the center. The frozen cookies will hold better when you press hard ice cream between two. If the cookies are room temperature, they will lose their form with the pressure of your hands.
Birthday cake ice cream sandwiches is my idea of the perfect dessert on my special day. My two favorite sweets are sandwiched together and covered in sprinkles—what more could I ask for?!
