Cake Mix Frosting

My daughter Madison LOVES Cold Stone Creameries Cake Batter ice cream- so when I saw this frosting recipe that said it tasted just like their ice cream, I knew I had to try it! Monday was her 1/2 Birthday so I thought that would be the perfect opportunity! She ABSOLUTELY loved it and asked to eat the frosting off of the cake (of course I said no to her request)! It seems odd, but is actually wonderful!

1-2 cup whipping cream
1 (18 ounce) package cake mix, any flavor (I used white)

Use 1/2 the cake mix. Pour into bowl and with electric beater, mix until most lumps are gone. Pour in whipping cream. Start with 1 cup, add more as needed. This can get very thick fast, so just add more whipping cream until you reach desired spreading consistency.

TIP OF THE DAY: For a great variation-- use chocolate cake mix, mix as directed, stir in mini marshmallows, slivered almonds and chocolate chips for a rocky road frosting.
