carvel logoWell, it’s official – football season is now in full swing! For the next few months, I will have to schedule my weekend around football fun. We’ll have to fit in both my son’s football games and work around my husband’s need to watch football on TV.

We got off to a great start this weekend. Jeb played his first football game on Saturday morning. He had a great time and his team ended up winning their first game of the season! Later that night, my husband was thrilled to watch the Crimson Tide notch their first win of the season. There was a lot to celebrate!

I picked up a cake last week and served it at my game day party over the weekend. It was a huge hit! I can tell you that when folks see the football-shaped cake they can’t help but smile. Finding out that it’s actually an ice cream cake, gets folks VERY excited!

The cake is made with layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, chocolate crunchies and fresh whipped frosting. As good as it sounds…it tastes even better. I looked over at the table at one point to see a couple of the guys actually picking up the crunchies that were left on the empty plate. Needless to say, the cake was a hit as there wasn’t even a crumb left!

I already went back to Publix and grabbed another cake! Yep, this time it’s for the boys! I was so  proud of how great they did, that I asked the coach if I could bring them a cake to celebrate. He thought it was a great idea!
