Ice-creamy goodness

We had a cake in home group tonight for my birthday. Usually I'm the one who makes the cakes for birthdays and I often make a 'novelty' cake, like a tiny-teddy golf course for the golfer, a calculator for the accountant, etc. As it was my birthday the group decided I should have a break from cake-making, so much discussion ensued about who would make the cake and what kind of cake I should have. Eventually I asked for an ice-cream cake made by one of the sons of the couple who host the group. He's 16 and he's made these cakes before. It's pretty awesome - you scoop the ice-cream out of the tub, mix other delicious things with it and then re-freeze it in another bowl. For my cake he put chopped up Mars Bar in chocolate ice-cream, Turkish Delight in strawberry ice-cream and Crunchie in vanilla ice-cream.

It was a seriously delicious cake. However, being a 16-year-old boy, he didn't pay a huge amount of attention to the details when he made it... which resulted in ice-cream all over the floor of the freezer; and a cake that looked like this:

And yes, that IS a Barbie-Mate stuck in the cake. For some reason he thought that would be the most appropriate implement for cutting and serving it.

Who cares what it looks like? It was a GREAT cake.

Why do you reference the 16yo boy mess. I would be entirely capable of creating a similare mess.

It looks yummy, though.
