My little girl is 6 years old now and is a little eccentric. She's a lefty and as such is incredibly creative and imaginative. Needless to say, in this house, we 'believe' in magical things like fairies, unicorns, mermaids, leprechauns, and so on. That's what childhood is for, right? Magic, wonder, and all things amazing.
Childhood is a thing worth celebrating.
Of course, this Unicorn Ice Cream Cake would be amazing for any holiday or celebration and the bright and super fun colors are completely versatile and up to you to get creative with. Maybe there's a back-to-school unicorn around your house with the primary colors? Or a holiday unicorn with red, green, and white? Today though? It was all about the infamous rainbow unicorn.
This Unicorn Ice Cream Cake is really simple to pull together. For the base 'crust' of the cake I used my traditional methods of lightening up a vanilla cake mix, and then halved it to give just enough for the 'crust'. The ice cream cake though, is made with The Curious Creamery Ice Cream Cake Mix.
The Curious Creamery gives everyone and anyone the freedom to customize their ice cream cake quickly and easily. They are also decreasing the carbon footprint while still providing us with a better-for-you ice cream with some of the most indulgent ingredients. It's fun for adults, and even more amazing for kids! With The Curious Creamery, you too can make ice cream with just a third of the fat, calories, and saturated fat of industrial ice cream and with no preservatives! It's simple, fun and super easy to do. Mix. Pour. Freeze.
But, you know me. I love to tinker, and the outcome is almost always sparkly and full of color. This Unicorn Ice Cream Cake is no different!
Here's a helpful tip: Not a fan of food coloring? There's all natural options out there available to color your cake with too!
The Curious Creamery makes it easy to impress with your own homemade cakes, cake pops, ice cream pies, cake balls, cupcakes, and more! You can find The Curious Creamer by using the Store Locator.

The Curious Creamery Ice Cream Cake Mix is a brand spanking new product that should be on shelfs (in the Celebration Aisle), but may not be available in all stores just yet.
This aisle also is where you'll find those lovely bright gel food colors and my preferred 'jimmies' style sprinkles.
Can't find it? Don't fret! Talk to your store manager if The Curious Creamery is not available at your local Walmart.
While the cake is finishing cooling follow the basic directions for the Curious Creamery Ice Cream Cake by, placing the Fat Free Milk, Heavy Whipping Cream, 1/4 C. Sugar, and 1/4 C. Natural Sweetener into the bottom of a stand mixer.
Add the contents of one of the (3 Oz.) packages of Ice Cream Cake Mix into the bowl as well.
Using the whisk attachment, beat on the highest speed for 3 1/2-5 minutes.
Alternatively, you could use a hand mixer.
Divide the ice cream cake base evenly among the amount of bowls you wish to have for the different colors of layers.
Add the food coloring and stir to blend well.
I used 6 colors for this unicorn cake. Pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
To get the brightest colors possible, I used gel food colors with about 20 drops of coloring per bowl.
Spread the different colors in over the cake 'crust' layer. Top with plenty of sprinkles and sparkly goodness.
I did half of the pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and the remaining half of pink.
Feels see to add more rainbow sprinkles in between the different colored layers!
Cover and place the cake pan into the freezer for 2-6 hours until completely frozen.
Once done, remove from the freezer and cut evenly into 13 slices.
Serve right away and enjoy!
Yum! Stick a fork in me, I'm done. I've gone to rainbow heaven.
