I made birthday pancakes (complete with funfetti) for my son's birthday breakfast and not one, but two birthday cakes. However, these were the easiest cakes I have ever "made." First, I was inspired by this No Bake Ice Cream Cake I found on Pinterest.
Basically, you take a box or two of ice cream sandwiches, layer them, ice them (I used the new Cool Whip Icing) and garnish. It tastes heavenly! I decided to go with a Cars theme and created my own Mater with chocolate and white chocolate baking disks for eyes and teeth and yellow M&Ms for the headlights and Samoa cookies for the wheels.
And for my final baking project, also inspired by Pinterest, I made pop rocks fireworks sugar cookies.
What special desserts did you make this holiday weekend?
