One of the reasons my family and I love the Fall is because it signals the start of one of our family's parade of birthdays. It starts in late September with my Mother-In-Law, continues into October with my late Grandmother's and My Son's and ends just in time for Thanksgiving with my Oldest Daughter's and my November Birthdays. So in celebration of those celebrations, this MOFO post will be a review of vegan birthday cakes through the years.
First up is Sean's Ice Cream Cake with Oreo Cookie Crust from last year. The recipe is on Dreena Burton's blog and is as delicious as it is easy. Basically Oreo sandwich cookies are cut in half and used to line a Spring Form Pan. Softened Ice Cream is layered above it with smashed cookie crumbs for the layer between your ice cream. The whole meshuggana(sp?) gets frozen until firm and decorated when released from its spring form cast. Yum!
