B’s birthday party is tomorrow. My oldest is going to be 8 next Wednesday. He chose a cowboy theme for his party and since he prefers ice cream over cake, we decided together that we’d go for an ice cream cake–in the shape of a boot. All ice cream, no cake. To make a long story short, that didn’t go so well.
The Rice Krispie Treats that were going to be in the shape of sheriff badges got nixed. Instead, I thought I’d shape them into a cowboy boot. Three-dimensional. Looked great until I started building up the boot part. Then it would just sink down and make the heel too big. After trying for long enough that the toe of the boot was cool, I pressed all three batches into a huge pan and decided to go for simple instead of creative. So now the dessert/cake is ready for the big party. Ice cream will be on the side.
