We’re making a Winnie the Pooh Ice Cream Cake to celebrate Disney’s “Christopher Robin” movie coming out in theaters August 3. I can’t be more excited to see this movie and my favorite silly bear Winnie the Pooh. This highly anticipated movie will delight both the young and the young at heart. My grandmother first introduced me to Winnie the Pooh and his friends when I was a little girl. She would take me to eat lunch and bring me shopping at Sears.
Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, and all his friends use to grace the tops of each of the clothing racks in the children’s department. It made me feel like I was actually in the Hundred Acre Woods. My grandmother sadly passed away, and one of the things she left me was her treasured stuffed Winnie the Pooh Bear.
Now that I have children I share my love of Pooh Bear and my fond memories of my grandmother with them. My youngest son loves his sweets as much as Winnie the Pooh loves honey. So, I thought what better way to get my son excited about Disney’s Christopher Robin than to have him help me make a Winnie the Pooh Ice Cream Cake filled with lots of honey covered sweets. I know my grandmother would approve!
How to Make A Winnie the Pooh Ice Cream Cake
First, before we started making the Winnie the Pooh Ice Cream Cake, I had my son do the daunting task of picking out all of the red and brown M&M’s and putting them into a different container.
Once my son finished separating the M&M’s we began making the Winnie the Pooh Ice Cream Cake. The ice cream cake is simple to make and only uses a few ingredients like whipping cream, and sweetened condensed milk. My son especially enjoyed pouring the ingredients into the bowl and turning on my Kitchenaid mixer.
Have your kids ever eaten Honey Comb cereal? Honestly, when my son started helping me make the ice cream cake, I had completely forgotten that he never tasted Honey Comb cereal before. He made up for all the years of never eating Honey Comb when he was spreading the cereal onto the bottom of the springform. I kept catching him eat handfuls of it. Seriously I don’t know how this kid will be hungry for dinner tonight with all the M&M’s and cereal he has eaten.
After my son spread the cereal on the bottom of the springform pan, he poured half the ice cream mixture on top of the cereal. Next, we covered the ice cream with the cubed Honey Buns. Then we poured the remaining ice cream on top of the Honey Buns and topped it with M&M’s and Honey Comb cereal. The hardest part about making this Winnie the Pooh Ice Cream Cake was waiting for it to freeze.
The ice cream cake was so delicious my family ate half of it while I was on the phone and before I could take pictures of it. This cake would be perfect for any Winnie the Pooh fan. I think Winnie the Pooh and his friends would love this cake! Are planning to see Disney’s Christopher Robin in theaters August 3?

Delicious no churn ice cream cake filled with Honey Buns and topped with cereal and M&M’s.
- 1 – 32 oz heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups Honey Comb cereal for crust
- 1 – 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1 bag of M&M’s, only use reds and browns
- extra Honey Comb cereal for topping
- 2 Honey Buns cubed (I used a vegetable chopper)
- In a stand mixer with whisk attachment fitted beat heavy cream for 4 minutes on a 2. Move it up every 2 minutes until you reach the 10. Once the heavy cream looks like whipped topping stop the mixer.
- Remove the whisk attachment. Pour in sweetened condensed milk and fold until smooth.
- Spread cereal at the bottom of the springform pan. Pour in half of whipped mixture. Top with cubed Honey Buns. Pour the rest over the ice cream mixture over the of the Honey Buns and top the cake with M&M’s and Honey Comb cereal.
- Freeze cake for 3 hours or until firm. Lightly heat the edge of the pan with warm water being careful not to wet the top of the cake. Pop the springform lever open and remove. Slice with a warm knife and serve.
- Cover any leftover cake and store in the freezer.
