I Made Ice Cream Cupcakes!

I know, I know
It has been a long while.
I just made these for my mans birthday.
They turned out so good.


Cake:     Cake Mix of your Choice
Cup Cake Liners

Ice Cream:   About 3 C of your favorite kind

Whipped Cream Frosting:      1 1/2 C Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 C Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Unflavored Gelatin
4 tsp. Water

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your Cake Mix according to the directions on the box. 
Fill just the very bottom of each cupcake liner.
Bake for about 10-15 min. Or until done.

Step 2:
After Cupcakes have cooled, and your ice cream has been softened.
Scoop out ice cream and fill each liner to the very top and flatten out.
keep your liners in the pan so they can keep their shape.

Step 3:
Freeze for at least 2 hours.
I prepared mine the day before and froze them overnight.

Step 4:
Make the Whipped Topping
With an electric mixer whip the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla on high
until thickened.
In a large bowl mix together the Gelatin and Water.
Microwave for about 20 seconds or until gelatin is dissolved.
Slowly mix in Gelatin to the whipped cream while still warm.
Whip on high until the Whipped Topping forms stiff peaks.

Step 5:
Frost the Cupcakes and serve chilled.

Happy Summer Birthday!!!
You will also have enough batter left over to make a whole cake.
