Just before last week's Superbowl Baskin-Robbins played the "ice cream and cake" commercial and it has been ringing in my silly brain since. Valentine's day is this weekend and I am always looking for novel ways to celebrate that are fun and playful. I decided that a Valentine's ice cream cake would be perfectly fun. I marched over to the local franchise and sure enough they had frozen ice cream cakes. I asked the nice young lady behind the counter where were the cakes with the plastic figurines on them? I was particularly interested in the dinosaur. She looked at me like I had just arrived from Mars. It seems the commercial is a "serving suggestion;" they do not have the toys on top. I picked a white iced cake with red roses on top. She offered to pipe a greeting on top so I said "Happy Valentines Day".
How was it you ask? As Randy, a judge on American Idol, says. "its Aw'right".
Happy Valentines Day!
