How do you like to celebrate your birthday? I love receiving cards in the mail, going to dinner with my family, celebrating with friends and spending the day doing what I love. These little things make birthdays wonderful.
I adore continuing birthday traditions I enjoyed in my childhood. As a little girl, my family always insisted we celebrate each other’s birthday with cake. We’d hurry to the store, grab our favorite treat and gather around the kitchen, anticipating our first bite. Whether it was a milestone birthday or just turning a year older, birthday cake was always mandatory.
Almost two decades later, in our home birthday cake is still a must. We love to stand around our dining table, light the candle on the cake and sing “Happy Birthday” to a family member or close friend. As soon as the last line is sung, every one is eager to enjoy a slice of a sweet treat.
September is my birthday month and this year we decided to start the celebration early by ordering a Strawberry Passion Signature Ice Cream Cake from Cold Stone Creamery. Whether you are planning a celebration weeks in advance or need a cake in a hurry, the ease of ordering is convenient at Cold Stone. I called two days before (or you can also order online), walked into my local store and picked up the cake without any hassle. I didn’t have to worry about damaging the cake either – the convenient packaging kept the cake intact.
I put it into the freezer and after dinner one night, I pulled it out for my family and friends to enjoy. We loved the Strawberry Passion ice cream cake. The layers of moist red velvet cake melt in your mouth, while the strawberry puree and strawberry ice cream with graham cracker pie crust offer a wonderful addition to an already fantastic taste. My friends loved it so much, they wanted me to pack it to go!
