Can custard be frozen?

Was trying to be clever and made some dulce de leche but decided to add butter to see what would happen- after an hour still no forming up like usually happpens, so I added eggs and made a very yummy custard, but i would like to freeze it for Christmas if at all possible? Has anyone ever frozen custard and defrosted it? Or, would you serve it as a kind of frozen dessert?

It should be fine.Thaw it in the fridge and whisk thoroughly when it has thawed.Or it would make a gorgeous ice cream with some whipped cream folded in before it is frozen.
