Ice cream cake…

June 17, 2009

…Is delicious, but only under a few conditions.

1. That it not contain cake. Cake should never be frozen. Yes, I understand that cake and ice cream (allegedly) go well together, but frozen cake tastes like shit and should never be accepted.

(corollary: ice cream + cake is fine, and perfectly acceptable. obviously, not as good as hot pie a la mode, but still, ok)

2. That the ice cream which makes up the cake also contains some sort of crumbly fudge deliciousness. This is especially amazing in Dairy Queen (my personal favorite)’s cakes. See below:

note the crumbles. they look like dirt, but taste like joy.

We at ShitShowRow LOVE (seriously, we love it) ice cream cakes from the Safeway in Foxhall. We buy the big rectangle ones that say HAPPY BIRTHDAY in beautiful pink cursive on them, and that allegedly feed 8-12 people. Four or five (occasionally six if we’re trying to be healthy) can eat one of these cakes, without plates, on the floor, in front of the tv, in less than 25 minutes. It would be gross, if it wasn’t so fucking delicious.

    25 minutes? who are you kidding slie? raptor hooles will demolish it by herself in half that time and we usually have it “done” (unworthy scraps excluded) in 15 minutes flat. speaking of cake, i’m hungry for some crunchies…

    Oh bitch please, the best of the ice cream cakes come from Ben&Jerry’s and say BJ on them. (Oh wow, it just occurred to me that BJ was probably not someone’s initials but just the initials to Ben and Jerry’s–am I the only one that was that retarded–oops, differently abled–?)

    Is there a condition against this? I think there should be a condition against this.

    Probably there is frozen cake inside.
