August is always a very busy Month. It is always full of last minute summer travel and fun, back to school prepping and shopping, family visiting and we can’t forget the two most important events of August! The Husband’s birthday and our wedding anniversary! This year I used ice cream cupcakes for the husband’s birthday; and I’m in love! I’ll tell you why!
This last weekend was the husband’s birthday. We had family coming to visit and lots more going on. Talk about busy. So I was struggling to settle on a plan for the Husband’s birthday cake. I wanted something fun and easy that could fit into the busy plans. But also something he could enjoy. See, he is a bit of a health nut. He loves healthy food and on the rare occasion he eats treats, he doesn’t like to eat a lot of it. So me making a regular sized cake, well it is fairly pointless as very little gets eaten and the rest ends up thrown out.
Make birthday planning easy with Ice Cream Cupcakes
So I thought about just buying a few cupcakes. Then we could have easy cupcakes, not a lot of them, so none would go to waste. But then I’d still need to get ice cream and dish it out.
Then the best idea ever! Cold Stone Creamery! They have some of the best decadent ice cream! Cold Stone only uses high quality ingredients! In preparing the treats they use a frozen granite station to keep everything the perfect temperature. And all ice cream is freshly made on a daily basis in every location.
Plus you can get ice cream cupcakes! These are the best solutions for birthday parties or any party really! It has your cake and ice cream all rolled into one convenient individual portion size!
I stopped in at our local Cold Stone. It’s always so much fun cause you can get specialty ice cream right there and enjoy it in the fun seating in the store. Or you can get it to go.
Since we had company, I went in to find the cupcakes in the freezer section and get them to go. While visiting I noticed the fun Shark Week signs!
Discovery Channel™ Shark Week begins on August 10th! Cold Stone and Discovery™ have come together again to bring all of their fans another exciting summertime promotion for Shark Week! They have gone shark crazy and are celebrating with these new items:
- Great Blue Cupcakes (6-packs): A rich Chocolate Cup filled with a layer of Yellow Cake and Blue Sweet Cream Ice Cream topped with fluffy Blue Frosting and a Gummy Shark.
- Shark Week Frenzy Ice Cream Creation: Blue Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Graham Cracker Pie Crust and Gummy Sharks.
Now normally I wouldn’t think to get the husband special cupcakes for his birthday. But they were just so cute! OK, really I was just thinking how much more fun they’d be compared to a basic cupcake. And they really were!
Back at home I arranged a few of the cupcakes on a plate and used a few candles. Who cares about the right number right? After 20, there really isn’t a point of using that many candles.
We enjoyed a delicious home grilled steak dinner with family and then came the fun part!
We did the traditional singing of “Happy Birthday” and blowing out candles. Then each person got their own cupcake. No fuss having to cut and serve and dish out ice cream. I really liked the ease of it all. But that’s not even the best part!
We got a load of laughs from the coloring! Oh my goodness, don’t eat these before a business meeting or presentation! The kids had blue all over! And all of us had blue teeth and lips. It was fun though. Even had the husband laughing. Totally worth it! But don’t worry, it does wash off.
He even mentioned how the Blue shark cupcakes were perfect! With an amazing rich Chocolate Cup filled with a layer of Yellow Cake and Blue Sweet Cream Ice Cream topped with fluffy Blue Frosting and a Gummy Shark. It was a fun theme, but you also got the perfect portion of cake and ice cream! Easy to enjoy and fully edible!
The blue shark cupcakes were perfect for our Birthday Party! But they would also be fun for a play date, shark themed party, end of summer party, or just because! In celebration of Shark Week, Cold Stone will have these treats available from July 2nd to August 17th! You can purchase the Great Blue Cupcakes in-store at their local Cold Stone, or order Great Blue Cupcakes Online at ColdStoneCakes.com. And be sure to Follow @ColdStone on Twitter.
