1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Sprinkle the cake
mix on a small sheet pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Let cool completely.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, sugar,
salt, and cooled cake mix until the sugar and cake
mix are dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla
extract. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled,
preferably overnight.
3. Assemble the Mix It In™ Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker
with the paddle secured and dispenser handle in its
upright position. Put the sprinkles into one of the topping containers for dispensing. Turn on and pour in the
chilled base. Churn until desired serving consistency is
reached, 25 to 30 minutes. If ice cream is not thick
enough, pour back into the freezer bowl and continue
mixing until the desired consistency is reached,
checking every few minutes. The ice cream will have
a soft, creamy texture.
4. Serve in cups or cones, adding rainbow sprinkles while
dispensing ice cream.
