DIY Pixie Ice Cream
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 (14-oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Pink gel food coloring
Purple gel food coloring
8 ice cream sugar cones
Edible silver food coloring spray
Edible sparkling sprinkles or sanding sugar
1. Beat heavy cream using an electric mixer until medium peaks form. Add vanilla and sweetened condensed milk; beat until stiff peaks form. Divide mixture evenly into 2 bowls; add desired amount of pink food coloring to one bowl and desired amount of purple food coloring to remaining bowl; whisk well to incorporate color completely.
2. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop ice cream in alternating colors into an 8.5×4.5 loaf pan. Swirl colors together to create a marbled pattern using a long wooden skewer or handle of a wooden spoon. Cover and freeze 6 hours or overnight.
3. Spray sugar cones with silver food coloring spray, sprinkle with glitter; let dry 5 minutes. Scoop ice cream into cones and decorate with edible glitter and sprinkles.
