"Time consuming, but easy, and with hundreds of possibilities (cakes, frostings, and ice creams) -- this is sure to be a new favorite! You can easily double this recipe if they disappear! (24 cupcakes need less than 12 cupcakes worth of batter.)"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or line 24 cupcake or muffin cups with paper baking liners.
  2. Stir cake mix, water, oil and eggs in large bowl until moistened. Beat with a mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes or whisk by hand for 2 minutes. Drop 2 tablespoons of batter into each cupcake cup. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes clean, about 8 to 10 minutes. When the cupcakes have cooled completely, cover and freeze until hard, about 4 hours.
  3. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the softened ice cream into each cup and gently pack it into the cup. Cover and return to the freezer until frozen, about 4 hours. Frost the cupcakes with the prepared frosting and serve.


  • Cook's Note
  • I used the recipe for Simple 'N' Delicious Chocolate Cake, vanilla ice cream, and fudge frosting to make a classic cupcake for my toddler. I made the number 2's from buttercream frosting that I piped onto wax paper and froze for 4 hours. Ganache also works really well on these cupcakes, but the numbers of combinations are endless!

This was really good. I decided to try a different approach the second time around. I split a box of cake mix between 2 13 x 9 pans. After they cooled I wrapped them in plastic wrap and froze...

It was great the ice cream was nice and it was easy to make
