For almost 13 years now, once a year, I go all out to bake and decorate a birthday cake for my son and it’s not your everyday sheet cake either. I plan the cake around the theme of the party, buy new shaped cake pans, new colors of icing, all the ingredients and stay up all hours of the night trying to out do myself from the previous years! In a couple of days he is going to be a teenager and so, as usual, I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his party. Goodbye to Batman, Spiderman and Sponge Bob themed cakes for him, he wants an ice cream cake!
How do I even begin to make an ice cream cake? Luckily, the July Celebrate Cooking magazine has an ice cream bar pie that I’m thinking about trying for his party. I’ll keep you updated and let you know how it turns out or if I modified the recipe any. Best of all, I shouldn’t have to be up all hours of the night baking and decorating!
