… to EVER make a homemade ice-cream cake again! I mean, I did it once, with great success, thirteen years ago, and then never again.
For anyone too uninterested to scroll down. This ice-cream themed post is brought to you by Baskin-Robbins 31 cent scoop night, being held tomorrow evening around the US and in Canada as well! And now, on with my blather…
Amy over at homeshuling posted today about a birthday party she made for her dd, including a homemade ice cream cake. Brownies, ice cream, homemade whipped cream, and a few crushed m&m’s. It looks like there is some type of illustration on top of her cake as well.
As I typed in my appreciative comment – about how wondrously easy and cheap it is to make your own cake, compared to what they charge for such a thing in stores – I began wondering how come I never did it again. We had one for YM’s 2nd birthday party, though I forget exactly what flavours of cake, or ice cream, I used.
But, ONE birthday out of... 36?!? I counted just now and apparently have celebrated 36 of my own kids' birthdays, and made my own ice-cream cake for precisely ONE of them. :-o
That's it... whoever's up next is getting an ice-cream cake! What a special treat it will be… for YM’s 16th birthday. Happy Sweet Sixteen to Mommy’s Little Boy!
