One of our members, Sue Crawford, shared with me today a great idea for a birthday cake that is under $10, takes literally 5 mins to prepare and kids really love.
What you will need:
1 tub of ice cream (icecream flavour of choice, although Neopolitan looks fabulous colourwise)
1 or 2 packets of Smarties (or similar)
1 packet of freckles or marshmallows (or toppings of your choice)
Place icecream container bottom into a sink of hot water for 5 secs.
Tip icecream upside down onto a plate – object is to get the whole tub of icecream sitting upside down on a plate without the container.
Decorate the cake with whatever decorations you like (we use smarties, freckles and marshmallows).
Add candles and serve.
Here is the end results! You have to agree, it looks fantastic and the reports from children is that it tastes amazing!
Thank you, Sue for your cool idea.
