I added a container of chocolate quark to it as I had heard that it would make it more moist. My husband said it didn't taste very chocolaty (I don't care for chocolate cake so didn't have an opinion). The icing is smoothed with an icing spatula and a little water.

Cut up (or if you have mini chocolate chips, use them) chocolate pieces for the 'seeds'. Put about 1/2-3/4 of the way up in one of the 'freeze your own popsicle' things. Put another layer of lemon sorbet on top of that and then add some green food coloring to the remaining lemon sorbet for the 'rind'.
You will need to refreeze to set and then run some cold to room temperature water over it to loosen it.

personalized with my son's picture and the date. Fun for a first birthday
Homemade peanut butter cups
I found the ice-cream cones at Real in Singen (Germany). They came 16 to a pack and have a chocolate inside. Yum! The cake is a strawberry cake with chocolate chips inside for the watermelon seeds. Just make your batter and then slightly push down the ice-cream cones into it and bake as directed. Simple and yummy.
This was the cake for another first birthday. I made the mistake of using a gel icing for the outline of the caterpillar, so it didn't freeze properly. This is a frozen buttercream transfer, my first attempt, and I think it came out pretty well.

Basically, you make rice krispy treats like normal, but add crushed pretzels, peanut butter, pb chips, and chocolate. I used the chocolate cubes from Coop, and they actually melted very well. Instead of layering chocolate over the top though, I melted 1/2 of the bag and mixed the other half in with the treats. Then I just drizzled it on top. \
Hubby was thrilled - until I told him the name :-)
Here's the link to the actual recipe
A little hard to see, but these are Oreos, dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes. Yum :)
