Cake Slice

As Shruti is becoming allergic to store bought snacks, I have to try hard to please her with home made snacks. She needs varieties. If I give her the same snack continuously for three days, she gets bored and asks for something else. When I prepared mango ice cream, she was enjoying it for three days and on the fourth day she was not at all interested. Now I had to come up with a plan to finish off the ice cream as I wasn't ready to increase my calorie intake. I made a sheet cake and layered it with the mango ice cream along with some jam and tutti frutti. Have you ever tasted cake slices from Arun Ice Cream? This was just like that and you know what, my daughter finished it off completely. You can also make it for a party as a dessert and it would surely be a crowd pleaser. Just buy two or three flavours of ice creams and sandwich them between cake and jam layers. You would have created an excellent dessert..

Mango Ice Cream-1 cup ( or any store bought ice cream)
Mixed Fruit Jam-1/2 cup
Tutti Frutti-1/2 cup
Sheet Cake-1

Assembling the Cake Slices:
