Noob here. I can't seem to shoot white food, like ice cream, or rice. It ends up looking extreme - blown out or very dark. Is this a white balance thing?

No, it's purely an exposure thing. WB affects the colour, not the brightness.
Spot focus on the white food, get an exposure reading and then over-expose by about 1.5 to 2 stops and your white should come out OK and still with some detail in it.

You can also set your exposure compensation to +1 or2, it tells your camera where middle grey is, instead of it thinking something completely white is grey.

Even all white subjects need shadows to define them. Otherwise all you would have to show is a pure white image with the title, "Vanilla Ice Cream Sitting in the Snow". LOL!!
