My daughter’s birthday is around Halloween and so we like to keep her family birthday party simple and low on the sugar and sweets. My friend, the wonderful Cindy, told me about waffle cakes and we had to give it a try. Basically, you make a regular cake mix, but instead of cooking it in the oven you cook them in the waffle maker. Then you top each waffle with ice cream and all the toppings you want (or have). The kiddos love ice cream and waffles. So, when you put them together, it was a huge hit! I loved that there was no cake decorating stress involved and the kids could help me since it was so simple to put together. This would make a great treat for any occasion where you are looking for something simple, yet, different and totally fun!
What You Need:
- 1 box favorite cake mix (we used a fun-fetti type)
- Ingredients listed on the box (eggs, oil, water, etc.)
- Mixing spoon and/or spatula
- Waffle Maker
- Ice cream of choice
- Toppings (optional)
Step 1: Make the cake mix as directed on the box. This part is my kiddos’ favorite.
Step 2: Heat up waffle maker and make some waffles! I’m still perfecting my waffle making technique, as you can tell. lol Any tips on getting great looking waffles in a waffle maker out there?
We ended up with more than enough waffles for our family of 4.
Step 3: Add ice cream of choice and toppings, if desired. As you can see the ice cream was plenty for us!
I love this picture, except for the fact that I can’t crop my son’s silly face out. Oh, well. Tis’ life and it is still cute!
Step 4: Enjoy!
