The German "Eis" actually covers both "ice" and "ice-cream" - if you want to specify, you say "Speiseeis", ice for eating. The "Eiscreme" is a special type of "Speiseeis", soft and coming out of a machine instead of being scooped up with a spoon.
And I am not sure that a German would consider the word being a loan from English: "Creme" was borrowed from French long ago.
