Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk & Kahlua Strawberry, Vanilla Ice Cream Cake
What’s a summer birthday without an ice cream cake? There are so many wonderful reasons to celebrate with cake this week. Not only is it Canada’s 150th Birthday a few days away but we were lucky enough to celebrate a close and dear friends birthday and the one year anniversary of my website. Layered with oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies dipped in Kahlua liqueur between creamy strawberry & vanilla flavoured Summer’s ice cream, this simple recipe is a perfect summertime adult treat. You will definitely need to make a second one for the kiddies!
It’s time to celebrate so let’s blowout the candles and cut the cake!!!
