No Birthday Cake Here

The chocolate brownie ice cream cake was lopsided. And there was frost covering one side of it. I couldn’t even finish my piece, not because I was full, but because it just didn’t taste that good.

Lily had requested an ice cream cake for her 7th birthday, and to tell you the truth, I was crushed. I enjoy baking her cake at home and decorating it myself. Somewhere between her sixth and seventh birthdays, however, she decided that cake was not her thing. Enter the lopsided brownie ice cream cake from the generic ice cream shop down the street.

For her 8th birthday, Lily wanted an ice cream cake again. I inwardly sighed and decided I had to buy it from a different place; a place where hopefully the cake would be frost free.

But then, a couple of days before her birthday, Lily changed her mind. She wanted something fruity.

Something strawberry! Something creamy! Something delicious!

I was happy to oblige.

  1. That's adorable. Those store-bought cakes never taste as nice, I make mine from a box mix and $.79 icing but it STILL tastes better than store-bought. Glad you both got to enjoy the treats for your daughter's big day!
