I’m going to do something a little different today, and post a semi-original recipe.
Tuesday 09/11 was my husband’s 28th birthday. He asked that I not get him a gift because he was holding out for the new iPhone 5. We have a system of upgrade in our household. He got the iPhone 3, I got the 3gs. He got the iPhone 4, I got the 4s. He’ll get the iPhone 5, I’ll get the iPhone 5xkg or whatever letter combination Apple uses. So in lieu of a present, I baked him a cake. But not just any cake, an ice cream cake!
I call this a “semi” original because I modified three different recipes to make it.
- The Ice Cream Cake Recipe – I used this recipe to build the cake, but I made a few changes because my husband hates chocolate, and I wanted to make the cake and icing from scratch.
- David’s Yellow Cake Recipe – I chose this recipe for the cake part of the cake and halved all of the ingredients.
- Quick Almost Professional Buttercream Icing – And I went with this recipe for the icing and doubled the ingredients.
