Ice Cream with Cake

Recently we celebrated my husbands birthday which falls over the 4th of July weekend.  I made him "2" cakes, the lucky dawg!  One to take with us for our 4th of July celebrations and one to stay at home.  

Along with the stay at home cake I bought some ice cream.  Everybody knows you have to have cake with ice cream on your birthday right?  Well, look what I found in the freezer section at the grocery store.

How perfect was that?  I'm not sure how long this has been out.  Have your tried this ice cream from Pet called Birthday Cake?

Just look at this!  OMG! Yall, this is some of THE best ice cream I have had in quite awhile!  It has the best vanilla flavoring with delicious flavored icing and candy bits mixed in.   Yummo!  

 Sadly, in our household I am the only ice cream eater as of late.  For some reason the Mr. and young man at home are not into ice cream right now.   It's really odd because there was a time when they were buying ice cream pretty regularly.  I guess their ice cream eating days come in phases.  Men!  Anyway, since I had plenty of this left, I thought I'd invite you over for a little treat.

I've set up the dining room table to make it easier for all of you too choose your preferences.

First you'll need to choose your dishes.  Colored ribbon adds a splash of color and festive fun.

You have your choice of footed bowls or...

... or footed sundae glasses.  Which do you prefer?

You might want to grab a napkin too, you know how messy this can get!

If your feeling quite adventurous, I've also laid out a choice of toppings for you too.

Don't forget your spoon!

And here's the scoop and a napkin in case you have a few drips.  Let's see here, I've got everything all set.  Now what else do we need?

Oops!  We need the ice cream don't we?  

By all means, let's not forget that!

I hope you don't mind that I've fixed myself just a little before you get here?

This stuff is soooo good you may want to skip all those toppings like me.
Ohhh, Yummmm!!!!

Ladies, you'd better hurry up!!!
  If you don't mind, can you pick up another carton of this please?
  I think we're going to need it!  LOL!

I can't wait to see you!
Please be sure and visit the following parties too, over at;
A Musing Potpourri for the Ice Cream Social.

Let me know if your coming, kay???


  1. Ok, that was cruel! LOL! Looks so good even at 10 am in the morning! I'm hoping to sneak some ice cream in this weekend. :)

  2. I'm in Mary! I'd like the bowl with the yellow ribbon please and a big ole scoop of that great looking ice cream-thanks:@)

  3. Mary!..your photo's are absolutely fab, and yes please fix me a big bowl with everything on it.
    Dawg-gone I wish I could scream loud enuff to get some, I scream we all scream for ice cream, yippee!

  4. Yummy!!! I was wondering how that ice cream was before I buy it! Thanks for filling me in! We go through ice cream phases too, but I keep looking at that one every time I go to Publix! I will be over soon and girl... I am going with the bowl!

  5. I've never seen that brand or type of ice cream, but maybe when we get to the big city. It looks delicious, but I could easily be addicted to ice cream, so I do try to stay away from it except for special occasions.

    I haven't been a very good blog friend of late, but I just read your post on "Encouragement," and thought it was truly wonderful. I very much appreciate your words of encouragement regarding our move. I never got any words of encouragement or positive feedback from my parents, but always from my grandparents. Because of that, I've always tried to be very encouraging of my own children and now grandchildren. I've gotten so much encouragement here in blogland, and lots of self-esteem building comments. Even after the age of 60, we (especially women) need those things. Becoming a blogger has been one of the best things that I've done for myself in a long time. You really did a beautiful post on the topic.

  6. I would certainly join you with this yummy ice cream -- the toppings look wonderful. Thanks for inviting us to your ice cream social.

  7. Sundae glasses! That's always my pick because I assume that I can cram more into them.

    I've never seen that ice cream flavor before. My younger daughter would love it.

  8. I'll be right there...this ice cream looks really delicious. I will have to look for it in the store. I don't recall ever seeing Pet brand in my store, but I'm gonna look.

    Thanks so much for joining in on the fun at the ice cream social.

    Have a great week! La

  9. That flavor looks delicious. You always have to have ice cream with your birthday cake, so why not kill two birds with one stone.

  10. I love ice cream! I'll look for the Pet brand...I've never heard of it, but it sounds delicious! I'm going for the bowl...I think that I can make it hold more! Cherry Kay

  11. I will be there Mary but shhh don't tell anybody!:) I guess I can always have a smaller bowl!:)
