There is practically nothing better than a wedding. It’s the beginning of everything. The beginning of the most fun and complete joy you’ll ever have, the beginning of a family, the beginning of new adventures and a whole new set of challenges. Ha! I mean that in the best way, but it’s true. I cannot imagine a more darling couple to charge into life together. I can’t wait to see what is in store for them, but in the meantime I’m going to sit here and chow down on these delicious cake batter ice cream balls covered in rainbow sprinkles and cheers to the soon to be newlyweds!!


Can Ice Cream Be Refrozen?

It is only safe to refreeze ice cream if it is slightly melted and has been kept cold.

Melted ice cream can allow bacteria to grow and would make you sick if you ate it.

Also, freezing melted ice cream changes the texture and flavor.


Can Cake Batter Be Made Ahead of Time?

You could refrigerate cake batter for a short time if you are baking a lot of cake and need to wait till one is done in order to use the pan.

But, cake batter that is left in the refrigerator for very long may not rise well.


What Can Be Substituted for Cream Cheese?

1 cup pureed cottage cheese [or] 1 cup plain yogurt, strained overnight in a cheesecloth” for 1 cup of cream cheese.
