Sixteen Candles

Please take a moment to marvel at this beautiful creation. Please take another moment to marvel at the fact that this wonderful dessert was HOMEMADE. Homemade for me!

Natalie and Mitch came over tonight for a bit of an early birthday celebration. We seem to have created a birthday tradition that when it's your birthday you end up doing the cooking and your friends just bring over the dessert. Trust me, you wouldn't mind this tradition if your friend brought you a homemade ice cream cake for dessert!

She kept the dessert a surprise until it was time to eat it, and I never in a million years would have guessed it was an ice cream cake. It never occurred to me that people would be able to make those at home. And boy oh boy was it delicious. The layers were mint chip ice cream and a fudgey/cakey chocolate layer with crushed Oreos. It tasted like frozen Thin Mints. And I've never met a person that didn't love Thin Mints.

I think now is a good time for everyone to reflect on which friend they can sucker in to making them an ice cream cake for their birthday this year. Trust me, this is a birthday cake you will not forget.
