Today is my 29th birthday! If you need me, i’ll be busy pretending that this past weekend’s weather (70 and sunny) was meant for my bday…since Mother Nature has decided it should only be 38 degrees today. WHAT?!
I’ll also be eating my last little birthday ice cream cupcake and treating myself to a nap!
When I was younger, the only “birthday cake” I ever requested was actually more like an ice cream pie. It was an oreo crust filled with strawberry ice cream and topped with m&ms. I found this pic from one of my earlier bdays to show you one my mom made:
It’s been forever since I had my favorite cake….so this year I decided to treat myself. I made little individual ice cream cupcakes because they’re easier to deal with…the big pie can be hard to cut and this way they’re already pre-portioned. All you have to do is mix together some crushed oreos and a little melted butter and press into the bottoms of the muffin tins, top with strawberry ice cream and then add a few m&ms and store in the freezer. I think I made 8 of them so I’ve been enjoying them for dessert for the past week and a half! Delish.
