We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Seriously. Don't we?

I do. I luv me some ice cream. It's my favorite dessert!

And it goes hand in hand with birthday cake. And we just happened to have a birthday around here recently (maybe I've mentioned it?)! And I'm starting a lot of sentences with "and"...

Back when we were prepping for our first child's first birthday my Grandma Rita said, "You know my ice cream trick, don't you?"

I didn't. But I learned. Quick. With LOTS of family and LOTS of cake to serve up, no one wants to fart around scooping up ice cream. Sticky, runny, messy-ness!

Here's our solution!

We spend a few minutes the night before scooping the ice cream up into cupcake liners. Then we pop them into the freezer until the candles are blown out. Then PRESTO! Instant ice cream servings that are easy to grab and put on a plate next to some cake.

Now...If you'll excuse me. I'm off to eat some left-overs!
