So my Paige is turning 11.  I cannot really even process that yet.  In this summer of crazy schedules, multiple summer camps, a garage sale, a new puppy, and Candy Crush, I have not had time to process a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g.  It’s very possible that by the time I realize she is no longer 10, she will be getting ready to turn 12.  Ah well.  I know there are fun moments.  I think I can remember smiling a whole bunch and laughing out loud at least a few times so far this summer so that’s something.

Anyway…

Paige is not a cake lover.  Paige DOES love ice cream.  No, that’s not exactly correct.  Paige ADORES ice cream.  No, maybe RELISHES ice cream is a better way to put it.  You get the point.  So somewhere along my pinterest-ing, I pinned an ice cream sandwich cake under my “birthday gifting” board http://pinterest.com/bshadowlong/birthday-gifting/ and when I showed it to Paige, she was extremely excited.

And I have to say it’s an amazing cake.

And pretty cheap.

And super easy.

And delicious.
