This post is brought to you from my other blog Living the Allergic Life. We just celebrated our 2nd of 3 birthdays this month and I wanted to share with you a great alternative to your everyday birthday cake. It's a VERY simple ice cream cake and although the below has allergy-friendly suggestions, you could easily make this with your normal ingredients. In 20 minutes or less, you can have your ice cream cake.....and eat it, too!
Bruster's Ice Cream. There we can all get what we want, including my daughter who is allergic to milk, eggs and peanuts. She loves their italian ice and sorbet options. There are about 4 or 5 different flavors to choose from at any given time so it was a great non-cupcake option.
To make this you'll need either Tofutti brand ice cream sandwiches or SO Delicious brand ice cream sandwiches. I bought SO Delicious brand for this cake at Publix.
You also need Pillsbury Classic White frosting (contains soy) OR another allergy-friendly one suited to your specific needs.
And then whatever toppings you want to use to decorate your cake. I bought Nerds & matching gumballs from the Dollar Tree to decorate ours.
The cake cuts very nicely and looks like a layered cake on the inside! My kids called me 'The Best Cake Maker in the World' and said things like, "You should start your own business!"
Happy Ice Cream Cake Making to You and Yours!
