Is it okay for me to share another half-recipe with you? And an ice cream one when it is cool weather season? I hope so, because that is what you are getting today.
I have made ice cream cakes and cupcakes before, but I needed to share this on here to show what I just learned. Even though it’s past summer and you might not care about ice cream anymore. Even if you never considered making ice cream cakes before. I am here to tell you that they are fairly easy, and definitely easier than making a layer cake. Both the decorating and the making parts.
Seriously, this is one of the easiest recipes I have found for eating chocolate in a frozen stick form. And, it was actually full of chocolate flavor. Probably because it is mostly melted chocolate.
Apparently I made a bunch of seasonal summery foods this year, and I am running out of time to share them before it is essentially Christmas. I apologize. But at the same time, I don’t. If you’re like me, you might make some recipes immediately upon seeing them, or you might save them for later to get re-excited about them, OR you might even make dishes during the “wrong” time of the year.
As you (might) know, my posts tend to be a bit delayed on here. I usually can’t make a recipe and have time to write about it immediately, so that’s how it goes. I actually am writing about this party only a couple days after it happened, but just posting it about 2 months after the fact. The Fudgelet normally parties at home for his birthday. This year, since it was his last birthday as an only child, I decided to go somewhere. Since he loves blueberries, we were going to do a two part one…pick blueberries, then go to a park and play/eat. Well, as you see, I said “we were.” We had a rainier and cooler spring this year which meant berries weren’t ready until near the end of July (normally they are ready around July 4). And then the park part had to get cancelled, too, since it ended up raining that morning for a bit (the first rain of the entire month, and then some). Siiiiiiigh. So, back to hosting it at home! He was a little disappointed at first, but then recovered when he knew that everyone was still coming here. He cared more about seeing his friends than the park.
Obviously I can’t ruin the surprise before the break, so this is all you can see right now…
These are meant to be like the store-bought chocolate cakes with cream in the middle. Lots of brands make a version of it…and these were pretty fantastic. Soft, good chocolate flavor, but not too rich…and then a sweet frosting for the middle.
So, after posting about the “Emergency Chocolate Cake,” I was wondering about remaking the Amelia Bedelia cake. I thought it would be fun to try it as a layer cake and see if it would work. And, because I was making it with the Fudgelet around, he insisted on adding sprinkles inside.
