Chip hit the nail on the head when it came to celebrating with cake and ice cream. It pleased me. It pleased the kids. It pleased the budget. It pleased him (no baking).
What is this wonder?
Birthday Cake Ice Cream.
Now, I cannot recommend every manufactuer's version of this, but here in the deep South where we have Blue Bell (sorry...the rest of you are just missing out), the Birthday Cake ice cream that they make and release for a few months a year is TO DIE FOR.
It's not cake flavored ice cream. Some brands do that. It's not the same thing.
It is ice cream with actual chunks of chocolate cake in it. Just look at it.
Doesn't that make your mouth water?
And it is scrumptious!
And every bit as good as a birthday cake with ice cream on top.
And perfect for our family of 4.
So instead of buying or baking me an entire cake and buying ice cream to put on it, Chip allowed me to enjoy both while making everyone happy.
And that works for all of us! Head over to We Are THAT Family to see what works for everyone else!
