My daughter just celebrated her birthday. She had a hard time deciding what theme she wanted to do her party in. She is very girly so all her ideas were very girly but she wanted the boys invited to have fun too. Finally she decided to do a party all about icecream because everyone loves icecream!
Sticking with her theme I made a quick cake that looked like an icecream sundae and I made cake balls dipped in chocolate with an icecream cone on top so they looked like they were upside down icecream cones melting (inspired by Bakerella). I do have to admit that I am not a fan of cake balls but they were very cute! We also let each child make their own icecream sundae- talk about a sugar overload!!!
I used the wilton giant cupcake pan to make the cake. It worked out okay but I think I will do it differently next time and maybe not start the dang thing at 10pm! I always seem to be running behind when it comes to my own children's cakes so to cut down on time I used (GASP!!!!!!!!!!!!!) store bought frosting. All I can say is never again. Anyone that knows me knows I am definitly a fan of home made frosting and NEVER use store bought! The kids thought everything was great and I guess that is what really matters!
