To transform an ice cream sandwich into a birthday “cake”, cut the ends off to make square corners (perfect bite sizes pieces for the “bakers” to sample - at least my husband and I thought so). Then cut the rectangle in half. The square pieces are the two layers for the birthday cake.
Finally stack the two squares rotating the second layer to create a two layered ice cream sandwich “cake”. Stick a candle in the top and call it a mini birthday cake!
If you want to go the extra mile, dip the ice cream edges in sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, coconut, or chopped nuts. Maybe pour some melted chocolate over the top…I may have to try that for my birthday!
Just remember, it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to be special. I really love how excited my 2 year old was over this mini “cake” that was by far the easiest birthday cake I ever made!
