Ice Cream Cake

When I was a kid I had a lot of Dairy Queen ice cream cakes for my birthday.  This was totally great and perfect and fine!  Ice cream cakes are stellar, and Dairy Queen’s cake had that amazing line of fudge in the center, with the crunchy chocolate bits.

Then, Cold Stone Creamery happened, and I had Cold Stone ice cream cakes for a few years.  Those were also delicious, because you could put little bits of Snickers or Reeses into the ice cream.

Nowadays I’m happy as long as ice cream is involved.  If I’m doing a non-ice cream cake I prefer a yellow cake with chocolate icing, and some nice vanilla Haagen Daz on the side.  Yeah, that sounds pretty delicious.  Red velvet cake is pretty good too, but it doesn’t strike me as “birthday.”

What’s your standard sugary birthday treat?  Cake?  Ice cream?  Both?  Or are you one of those people who prefer pie or pudding?  Let me know!
