Just whisk some whipped cream, stir in a can of sweetened condensed milk, and you have a mixture that can easily be piped around the cake stars and that will freeze up beautifully.
To keep this ice cream roll from melting too quickly on a hot summer day, I decided to add a bit of melted white chocolate to the sweetened condensed milk to give the frozen roll a bit more structure. To ensure the center of this dessert would be vibrantly white I chose to use Bright White Candy Melts, but if you don't mind an off white center, you can use pure white chocolate instead.
Being this dessert needed a pop of red, I simply covered the ice cream roll with red sprinkles. It added just the right color and a little bit of crunch.
When you cut into this 4th of July dessert, you get a bit of red, white and blue in every slice.
4th of July Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Roll
Blue Cake Stars-
1 (8.25 ounce) pouch Pillsbury Funfetti Aqua Blue Cake Mix
2 egg whites
⅔ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil
White Chocolate Ice Cream-
2 cups heavy whipping cream
5 ounces Bright White Candy Melts
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
Red Jimmies (sprinkles)
Special Supplies Needed:
1 inch star cookie cutter
Rehruecken Non-Stick Loaf Cake Pan
Line the Rehruecken pan with non-stick tin foil for the easiest removal.
Spoon the ice cream into a large pastry bag or zip top bag. Pipe a thin layer of the ice cream into the pan.
Arrange blue cake stars down the center of the pan, placing one of the five points down towards the bottom of the pan.
Pipe ice cream around and over top of the cake stars. Smooth out and place in freezer for at least 3 hours.
You will have some extra ice cream. Just put it in a freezer safe container and freeze until ready to eat.
To unmold, pull up on the tin foil, remove the ice cream log from the pan, set the log on a serving plate, and peel off the tin foil.
Sprinkle red jimmies over top of the ice cream log. You'll need to press them in around the sides in order to get them to stick.
Cut a slice off the front of the ice cream log in order to reveal the blue star.
Freeze until ready to serve.
