Russell's Birthday

Tomorrow is Russell's 33rd birthday and I'm throwing a little party for him. My friend Jen came over and we made him an ice cream sandwich cake. Actually Jen did most of the work...I was just the sous chef on this project learning new things along the way. Jen is quite accomplished when it comes to cake making and decorating as she has done it professionally for years and years. So here are some pictures of the whole process of making Russell's cake, which turned out to look a bit like it was Dr. Sues inspired even though it wasn't lol.

Start with home made cookie dough

Spread it out on a baking sheet

Bake until just right

Cut out the shape you want

Cool on wire rack, be sure to snack and drink in the meantime

Cut up icecream

Assemble Layers

Frost as desired with whipped icing

Making cakes is always a messy process...

What happens when you don't have a theme or any idea how you want the cake to look lol! Don't laugh too much it's gonna taste divine.
