Ice Cream Inspired Sweets

I don’t know about you, but we’re creatures of habit in this house.  Our weekly routine generally ends on Friday night with homemade pizza and a squeal-filled game of hide and seek.  Once the munchkin is in bed, Mr. Sellman and I catch our breath before the weekend begins.  One Friday night, we got crazy and introduced ice cream into the mix.  Its funny how quickly a toddler can adapt to a new routine when it involves ice cream!  Now her definition of Friday is hide and seek… and ice cream.  Literally.  That’s what she squealed last night when she heard the good news… tomorrow is Friday.  Ah, now we all love Friday.  Just for different reasons.

So I thought we’d have a little Friday fun here on the blog, ice cream included.  We’re taking a quick look at a few of my favorite ice cream inspired desserts.  Everything from an ice cream pop cake to the cutest sugar cookie sundae.  Grab a spoon… it’s Friday and we’re digging in!

    Hmm, I just love ice cream. Your cakes are beautiful. The ice cream cone reminded me of a tip one of my Facebook friends posted. Before putting ice cream in a cone, drop in (and push down as far as possible) a mini marshmallow which will absorb the bit of ice cream that always melts and makes the bottom of the cone soggy. Keep up the good work… love your posts.
