Ice cream cake: The breakfast of champions
Earlier this morning, a black raspberry ice cream cake from Graeter's landed in what we at the Enquirer call the "coffee alley" (a narrow hallway with a coffeemaker, an overflowing fridge, two microwaves, a sink and a counter upon which communal food periodically appears). It was gone in about 15 minutes. Now, I've seen some pretty unappetizing stuff disappear in about the same amount of time, but this time it was justified, even if it was only 10 a.m. I probably should have let my slice thaw a bit more before I attacked it with my fork, but I couldn't resist the layers of chocolate cake, black raspberry ice cream and fudge topped with marshmallow sauce and whipped cream. My only gripe was that the black raspberry layer was lacking Graeter's signature dark chocolate chips, but it was still pretty darn good. However, I'll always have a soft spot for Dairy Queen ice cream cakes, which were the highlight of many of my childhood birthday celebrations. Who's your favorite ice cream cake maker?
