My baby girl turned 10.
My little Grace is a pre-teen.
I don't have babies any more.
She's smart, talented, kind hearted, beautiful both inside and out.
She loves to dance and sing.
She's getting a mind of her own and an attitude.
There are some days when I wonder who's child she is.
In my house, on your birthday, we have a family only dinner, you get to choose the meal and your cake. And it's all made at home, with the birthday person's help.
Grace choose for her cake an Ice Cream cake. Cool, I've always wanted to make one! For her ice cream she choose Cookie Dough.
And the best part about this cake? We had fun making it together!
Ice Cream Cake
made by Grace
1 half gallon of ice cream (or as close as you can get)
1 layer of your favorite cake (we used devil's food)
crushed cookies ,we used regular Oreos
Chocolate candy, we used KitKats and Reeces
Candy coating or chocolate chips
You'll need a spring form pan to make this. Remove ice cream from freezer and let sit on counter for about 20 minutes to soften.
Place your layer cake on the bottom of the spring form pan. Mush the cake down to create a crust.
Take about half of the ice cream and smooth it around to coat the cake layer
Now for the cookies. Break your cookies over the ice cream. Gently press into the ice cream.
Place the remaining ice cream on top of your cookie layer.
Chop your candy
And sprinkle on top.
you could stop here but why would you want to.
Melt your candy coating or chocolate chips then drizzle on top. I use my handy bottles.
Place in the freezer to set over night.
Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving. You may need to use a knife around the edge by the spring form latch to loosen.
Just a note. We thought it would be decorative to add some Ready Whip around the edges.
On a frozen cake,
the Ready Whip
I'll be linking up at some of these great parties!
