Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Ice Cream Cake

To make a basic ice cream cake, you need four things:

Ice Cream
Something Crunchy
Whipped Cream
A pan

To make an ice cream cake in a 9 inch pan, do the following:

1.  Line pan with cling wrap (optional, but it makes it easier to cut if you can lift it out of the pan)
2.  Soften 1/2 gallon of purchased ice cream OR make your own*.
3.  Press ice cream in the pan until it is about 1/3 full.
4.  Crush your crunchies, as needed (I used Oreos, so I crushed them with a rolling pin).  Layer over ice cream.
5.  Top crunchies with ice cream until even with the top of the pan.
6.  Freeze at least 2 hours.
7.  Top with whipped cream.
8.  Let stand about 15 minutes for ease of cutting
