Love is in the Air

A little late...but still delicious and full of love. Here is the amazingly fantastic ice cream cake I made for Brent for Valentine's Day. If you read here regularly, you will notice this is sort of a staple. It has become pretty easy and is just so darn extravagant, everyone freaks out! And really, isn't that the point? Easy and beautiful, ummm, yes please! So if you, too, would like to dazzle with this scrumptious piece of heaven, the full recipe can be found here and another version here.
Devil's food cake batter with additional chocolate chips (I'm following my own advice!).
Black cherry ice cream. Beneath the ice cream is a layer of chocolate/vanilla cookies (you know, those generic brand oreo type things) and Hershey's chocolate sauce.
Leaning tower of deliciousness!

Some chocolate dipped cherries on top of the cool whip...the cake should be in a heart shape but I think it's height to width ratio got a little crazy. Then I added more chocolate sauce drizzled all over as seen in the first picture (yes, drizzling choc. sauce everywhere--including the counter--makes everything seem fancier).

I also received some love in the mail this week (I am sure you are tired of my headless photo shots...last one for awhile, I promise!)...Sandra from In This Small House sent me this adorable scarf for my new job. How sweet is she! And you know I love me some black and white! I was overwhelmed by such a kind gesture and could not believe someone would simply send me a gift out of the goodness of their heart...I am touched at the sincerity of friendship here in bloggy land. Thanks Sandra!

P.S. So I was super excited today to see I had 100 followers...really, you really love me??? I was ecstatic! Then a few hours later, I logged in again and was back to 99! How sad is that! Well I will take a bite of humility and remember that six months ago I had two anyways, who wants to top off ol' 100??? Any takers? ;) Well, 99 or 100, I love all 99 of you! Each time one of you joins the domestic madness, I am reminded how much I love blogging!

P.S.S. And to relate back to this, yeah...what is your dessert staple? What are you known for? What is so easy that you can throw it down in a heartbeat? Share your secrets!!!! xoxo

  20. I love the Easter stuff! Don't worry about the followers -- when people list you on their site, they may "un-follow" you, looking like you have less. But you probably have more links! BTW, I'm going to link to you on my site, so you'll have one less follower! It's a good thing! :)
