Directions

  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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I am the submitter of this recipe and I noticed AR changed a few things from my original submission so I wanted to add a few notes: If you make an entire box of cake mix, you will have a substantial amount of batter left over. I made mine into a 8" cake. Watch the time on the cupcakes. Follow the cake mix directions on the back of the box (don't use 3 eggs unless yours says too). Ice cream shell would be great for a frosting substitute on these if you prefer!

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 frozen them over night. The next day I placed one in the bottome of a 13 x 9 pan then spread almost a gallon of softened ice cream on that. I topped it with the 2nd frozen cake. I wrapped the pan with plastic wrap and refroze. When I served it, I served a slice with whipped cream, chocoate sauce and a cherry. Everyone LOVED this both ways I made it. :) Thanks for a great idea.
