Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Featuring my thick and nuggy Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookies, these ice cream sandwiches are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.  If you've ever had the Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich at Disneyland , you are going to LOVE these!  These big and bold chocolate chip cookies are based on a recipe from my culinary school studies at Auguste Escoffier, but with a few modifications to give them that Jennuine touch.  They make the perfectas book for a fat slice of real vanilla bean ice cream.  And those mini chips?  You just gotta have that extra cronch! Thank goodness this recipe only makes 8 sandwiches, otherwise I would be eating them for breakfast lunch and dinner.  This way, my big family can help save me from my inner child diet-saboteur.   Print With Image Without Image Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches Yield: 8 Author: Jenn Erickson Loaded with chocolate chips and buttery, brown-sugary vanilla flavor, these mall-sized cookies form a perfect partnership with a

Vintage Fire Truck Cake Has Me On A Bloggy Break...

This week I'm recreating the 1917 fire truck pictured above in sugar and cake! There won't be any new posts this week, since 100% of my time is going in to making this cake a show-stopper. There are lots and lots of fine details!

If you'd like to share any of your posts, please stop by my linky party,

I look forward to showing off the finished cake on Sunday or Monday. In the meantime, here are some photos showing the process and progress up to this point:

First we visited the fire truck and took loads of measurements and photos. Next, we built a scale model out of foam.

We began fabricating pieces out of gumpaste.

Then, started "gluing" it all together.

Coming together and up on "blocks" courtesy of the Girl Scouts.

Painted red...
Adding details like the grill...

the upholstery...

And the "wooden" truck bed.

Still lots and lots of fine detail-work to go.
To be continued...
