Penguin Ice Cream Cake

By PaisleyJade - Thursday, February 13, 2014

Today we celebrated the birthday of our baby - she's no longer a baby, but a beautiful and precious young lady!

A couple of years ago our children were all saying what they would like to do/be when they grew up. Our youngest declared (with total sincerity) that when she grew up she wanted to be a penguin and live on a farm!  

She still loves penguins, and although she didn't have a big party this year with friends (just precious Grandparents, Nana and her great Nana as guests) she had ordered a penguin ice cream cake! Now how in the world do you make one of those!!??!!! Dad took it upon himself to create her one, along with a Watermelon Shark again!

*For those of you wondering, the Penguin Ice Cream Cake is basically a tub of ice cream, covered in melted white chocolate, surrounded by jelly and decorated with some precious penguin ornaments. Easy huh!?! Also, it totally tasted like a white chocolate Magnum!!!

We had a delicious afternoon tea and enjoyed celebrating this precious wee girl, our little gift from Happy Land!

Happy birthday to our beautiful Happy Land princess!

 p.s. She loved her Penguin Softie!!!
