strawberry sundae cake

Bess just had her fourth birthday, and she requested a strawberry ice cream cake.

Now, in my opinion, ice cream cakes ought always to involve chocolate, toffee, caramel and Oreo cookies.

But, it was not my birthday.

And, I have to say, the creation I came up with turned out rather well.

So, if you have a little girl (or boy) much given to strawberries and ice cream, here is a rather delicious cake you might make:

1) Take about 1 lb. of vanilla sandwich cookies and process them in a food processor with about 1/4 c. soft butter.
2) Pat the resulting crumbs into the bottom of a 9 by 13 inch pan.
3) Meanwhile, have one regular container of strawberry ice cream (a quart? a gallon? you know, those cylindrical containers that are much bigger than a pint?) softening on the counter.
4) Spread the softened strawberry ice cream over the cookie crust.
5) Cover the ice cream layer with one big box of strawberry milkshake Whoppers, all Whoppers having been cut in half (this doesn't take as long as it sounds).
6) Cover the Whoppers with Cool Whip (one normal container's worth).
7) Cover the whole cake and stick back into the freezer to harden.
8) After hardened, take out and serve. You might want a hot table knife to cut the pieces.
9) If desired, top with fresh, sliced strawberries.

I'm sorry about the measurements - I was throwing the whole thing together without taking notes!

My favorite part is that the chopped Whopper layer gets chewy and crunchy at the same time. Yum.

peace of Christ to you,
