Because I love dessert...

Thanksgiving is just days away and this pumpkin bread looked too easy and too delicious not to buy! All I had to add was eggs, oil, and water...and an hour later fresh baked bread. The house smelled delightful!
I wrapped one of the loafs up for a friend with a cutsie polka dot ribbon and a stamped pumpkin tag to finish it off...and little did they know it was not made from scratch! I won't tell if you won't! ;)
The package came with a can of pumpkin along with a bag of the bread batter. I thought this would also work really well to put in a clear canister as one of those pour all the ingredients in a bowl and bake presents. An easy and quick present without spending the day in the kitchen...and it was only $4!
I also made another ice cream cake this weekend. This is the original ice cream cake from Sandra Lee that I posted about here (recipe included). I thought I'd show what her recipe ends up looking like. Um...delicious! I ran out of toffee for the sides of the cake so I threw some Hershey's syrup all over it to fill in space. It made it even more tasty and beautiful!

I love the dripping cool whip and chocolate down the side!Oh, and Michelle at Chocolate and Marmalade Tea passed on this sweet award to me last week. She said I have the coolest ideas! Aww thanks Michelle! Now it is my turn to recognize some awesome bloggy bloggers!

  1. Aww thanks girlie! You're so sweet. You just reminded me that I have a pumpkin bread mix in my pantry that I need to use up. Duh! And that ice cream cake looks divine!

  2. You are MOST welcome. I think I just gained 5 lbs looking at your bread and ice cream cake. That is my kind of dessert! Easy. That ice cream cake looks SO delicious. That happens to be one of my favorite cakes, especially the cakes at Baskin Robbins. I've always been a sucker for those.

  3. I wish I wasn't Vegan and I also wish I could cheat but I can't eat icecream because it does yucky things to my lungs. But it looks AMAZING!
