Ice Cream Cake

 Whew, what a month this has been!  We are officially relocated to South Carolina.  Now we just need to get settled in to our house.  Before we left Massachusetts, I made this ice cream cake for my son.  At the time I was in the process of shutting down my kitchen for moving so the last thing I wanted to do was bake.  However, I couldn't overlook the little guy's birthday.  With the hot weather of summer, this cake was absolutely perfect.  It was a nice cold treat and SO easy to make.

I'm almost embarrassed to tell you how to make this cake.  You're gonna say that I'm cheating, and you'd be right.  But sometimes circumstances dictate that you take the easy road.  This was one of those times.  Since the cake was made of ice cream it seamed only fitting to make it into an iceberg.  And what's and iceberg without penguins?  I let the birthday boy and his friend make the penguin decorations therefore accomplishing an activity and birthday cake in one.  I'm such a cheater!
