Rainbow Ice Cream Cake

When my son wanted an Ice Cream cake for his birthday, I thought how hard could it be to make one, so I thought about it , and came up with this idea and its been popular in my house ever since.


  • 100g packet Mini Rainbow Marshmellows

  • 2 litres Neopolitan Ice Cream

  • 1 packet Rainbow Sprinkles


  • 1.

    Line 18cm round cake tin with cling wrap overlapping the sides.

  • 2.

    Spread evenly packet of Marshmellows into the cake tin.

  • 3.

    Scoop Ice Cream onto Marshmellows spreading evenly and pressing down firmly, one flavour at at time. eg: chocolate, strawberry and then vanilla.

  • 4.

    Place back into freezer for approx. 30 minutes.

  • 5.

    Turn Ice Cream cake onto a plate, remove cling wrap and press Sprinkles around the outside of the cake.

  • 6.

    Place into container suitable for freezer until ready to serve.


I attached silver cardboard stars to plastic drinking straws for decoration.
Alternative decorations could be Sparklers or ordinary Birthday candles
