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
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.
