Football season. Time to pack the house with friends, family, and all the must-have game day treats. Don’t we all have that one thing that HAS to be part of the spread? *raises hand*
We shook it up a bit for the game on Sunday and went old school: ice cream cake made an appearance. Yes, that fudge-y crumble crunchie layer with vanilla and chocolate ice cream ended our weekend and we could not have been more pumped. Even better? We found a Carvel® Football Ice Cream Cake from I Love Ice Cream Cakes (yes- as in your childhood birthday party brand). We found it in the grocery store so we spent no time putting it together.
Shocked there was a gameday cake, there was no way we could pass up having this for everyone at the end of the 4th quarter. It was quite the conversation starter among our friends…’I can’t even remember the last time I had ice cream cake…’ to ‘Oh man, you know the party is good if it ends in this.’ Right?! We’re bringing back this classic favorite.
No one was happier more than baby Chloe. You’re hooked now, kid. We had to eat ours fast so she would stop pointing for more! Obviously, the cake was a big win and we’ve accepted that now we will definitely need it for future games this season. Easy to get at the store…easy to please the whole room.
It’s two things that bring it all together: football and ice cream. Here in Buffalo, Sunday is for everyone- don’t we all plan for the day to hold parties, invite anyone over who wants to come, and watch the games in anticipation every single week?
This happened to be on a gameday we won. Snacks and burgers had been flowing all afternoon with people in and out of the house stopping by to say ‘hi’ and others hanging out to see if we (Bills) were going to make it. At the end of the 4th quarter, the Game Day Ball made an appearance to settle on the counter. At the end of the celebratory win, the surprise-of-the-day dessert was served. The best part was Chloe having some for the very first time. It made us reminisce of our childhood and how anything fun involved ice cream cake. Now, we could cheer on our football team with some and watch her eyes light up.
