For the ice cream cake:

  • Place a large bowl and beaters or whisk attachment into the freezer to chill for about 10 minutes.
  • Line an 8- or 9-inch springform pan with plastic wrap (if you use the 9-inch, the cake will not be as tall).
  • Combine the heavy cream, vanilla, and salt in the chilled bowl, and using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip the cream to stiff peaks.
  • Carefully pour the sweetened condensed milk and melted butter into the bowl, then gently fold into the whipped cream. Then quickly and gently fold in the sprinkles.
  • Spread the ice cream evenly in the prepared pan and freeze for several hours, or until firm.
  • After cake has been in the freezer for at least 2 hours, prepare the chocolate frosting.

For the frosting:

  • In a heatproof mixing bowl set over a simmering pot of water, melt the butter and chocolate chips, stirring frequently until smooth.
  • Remove from the heat, cool slightly, and then place the bowl in the refrigerator until solid, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove bowl from refrigerator and allow to come up to room temperature.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat on medium until light and fluffy.
  • Remove cake from the freezer; quickly unmold and place on a serving plate. Frost evenly with the chocolate frosting. Decorate with additional sprinkles, if desired.
  • Return to freezer to firm up the frosting until ready to serve.
