Ice Cream Cake – Recipe

Ice cream cake is my husband’s favorite cake, especially for his birthday. Every year we would buy a Carvel’s Ice Cream cake, but this year I decided to make one (for a fraction of the cost of Carvel’s cakes). Making this cake was quite simple, since all the ingredients are ready made, and no baking is required. All I had to do is to assemble, freeze, and serve. The most laborious part of this project, was the unwrapping of the ice cream sandwiches.

Thank You Favors – Baby Shower

Like any other special event, baby showers also end with a thank you and a keepsake, also referred to as “favor”. I have prepared my favors from a pink votive candle in a glass jar, wrapped in pink tulle, tied with a dainty pink ribbon, plus a special Thank You note from the baby, text of which I am including in this post.
