we all scream for ice cream.

A few months ago I made an ice cream cake for Max's birthday.  Byron really liked it so I thought to myself- "self, maybe you should make one for Byron's birthday too!" And so that is what I did.  Made an ice cream cake.  

What's that? You want to make one too? Good news... it is so easy!

Step 6: Cut brownies in the shape of the ice cream pan (so easy!) Side note: this step would be even easier if you had two pans that are the same size and shape.

Step 8: Carefully remove the round brownie (pretty easy but I would recommend using two hands) and place it on the ice cream

I might recommend taking the cake out of the freezer about 10 minutes before you are ready to serve.  Our ice cream cake was a bit frozen which made it really hard to cut.

Step 12: Cut and Enjoy (the easiest step!)
