Who doesn’t love a good ice cream sandwich especially those Toll House cookie with ice cream in between? To shake things up a bit I baked some jumbo chocolate cupcakes in silicone cupcake liners. Once they were cooled I sliced them in half and scooped in some vanilla bean ice cream. Put the top back on and bam there you go an cupcake ice cream sandwich. My live in taste tester said that it was very good. Of course he’s bias. Although he’s not afraid to toss my baking if he really doesn’t like it. However this time he ate the entire cupcake!
Just a few changes I want to make but this is for sure my new fave treat to make!

With the leftover peanut butter frosting, I made some chocolate cupcakes to toss the frosting on and topped them with a banana which I covered with sugar and torched.

For a co worker’s birthday and a fellow Sharks fan I made a hockey puck cake. Not just any hockey puck it was a chocolate cake filled with a peanut butter frosting. This was only my second full fondant cake. I need more practice on judging just how much fondant to separate out. The verdict was the cake was loved.
