She has found her true love. Dancing.
May she love it well past the boy stage and skip that part altogether!
They will tell you the breakfast in bed thing has been a tradition for birthdays for forever.
But I have the photos to prove that THIS was the first year.
ONE year = tradition.
I'm stuck with it for forever or until she turns 18 and moves out right?
See what I mean?
One time = tradition, chained in for life.
Never let you forget it.
Happy Birthday to my 11yrold. You know this means I AM OLD now.
This year I won.
Instead of the 'traditional ones', I talked her into this awesome 'Ice Cream Sandwich' Cake.
Did you know they make peppermint ice cream sandwiches? AND...oh my gosh!
we saw Eggnog ice cream sandwiches?
I found all sorts of recipes for different versions of This Amazingness.
Here's what we did.
peppermint ice cream sandwiches
vanilla Oreo cookies
one candy cane
1 container vanilla store-bought frosting
1 small package white chocolate pudding mix
1/2 container small whip topping
unwrap 8 peppermint ice cream sandwiches
lay 4 side by side on piece of parchment paper
cover this layer with frosting mix
crush 5 vanilla Oreo cookies, and sprinkle on this layer
lay 4 more sandwiches on top of frosting cookie layer
frost the whole 'cake' with the rest of the frosting
crush a candy cane and sprinkle on top for Martha effect
put it all in the freezer, and enjoy 2 hours later!
I'm seriously using this frosting for like EVERY other cake I ever make. It was THAT good.
