Gluten Free Birthday Ice Cream Cake

We are huge ice cream cake fans in this house. If there is a birthday, there is an ice cream cake. Once diagnosed with Celiac Disease it was one of the things I missed the most. Luckily, they aren’t hard to make, just a little bit of time and patience!

Birthday Cake Cookies

What makes this gluten free ice cream cake extra special is that we move away from the traditional chocolate cookie crumbles, the cookie layer of this cake is Goodie Girl Gluten Free Birthday Cake Cookies. These creme filled cookies have all your fave birthday cake flavors, complete with sprinkles on the inside.

Unlike traditional cakes, there is no fudge layer over the cookies. The creme in the cookies helps to hold the crumbles together and make the perfect layer.

Easy, but not Quick

This gluten free birthday ice cream cake, may look difficult, but it’s not. It’s just a little time consuming. Each layer needs time to freeze, so plan to start making it at minimum the day before you need it. There are a few tips to making it come out perfect.

Recipe Notes

  1. Whip your ice cream in a stand mixer (if you have one). The ice cream needs to be smooth to spread easily, but you don’t want a part to be liquid and the rest to be solid. Beating it will turn it to soft serve consistency.
  2. Let the first layer set for at least an hour before adding the cookie layer and second ice cream layer.
  3. Add some sprinkles to the vanilla layer, it makes it look like a party!
  4. Ice with whipped cream and refreeze before adding decorations.

If you love ice cream cake, this is the gluten free ice cream cake you have been missing. This gluten free birthday ice cream cake is to die for. If you prefer a chocolate crunch layer, be sure to check out my original version with Goodie Girl’s Double Chocolate Chip Cookies HERE.

    When you say, “whipped cream” do you mean Whipping cream that we whip or do you mean a “Cool Whip” type of topping?

      Hi! I’ve used both. I prefer cool whip because it’s easy and it freezes well. You can make whipped cream and use it. If you want it not to melt you have to make a stabilized version using gelatin and it’s a bit complicated.
