You know what bugs me? Having to say that I was born in 19-blabla. That 19 – it bugs me. It says that I was born in the last century.

When I was about 9-years old, or right around the time that I could understand the concept of numbers, this little old lady told me that she was born in 1896. My mouth dropped to the floor as soon as I heard 18… This meant that she was born in the last century! She was ancient!!

For that reason, now, when I have to say I was born in 1978, I think that the other person (who always happens to be 23) is thinking, daaaamn! she old!

Which brings me to my story about my Chocolate Cake Ice Cream Truffles.

Once upon a time, I went to college. It feels like it was yesterday, but when I count the years, it really was a while back. At least I can say that I finished during this century. Anywho. I was getting ready to dig into a chocolate cake that I made because my plan for the night included me, chocolate cake, coffee, and an all nighter with my Political Science textbook.

I put on my PJ’s, I got my study area ready, and I headed to get the cake.

The worst that could have happened, happened. I dropped the cake! Oh my GAH! I was SO mad! Every four-letter word came out of my mouth. I immediately started seeing little Batman comments – SPLAT! BAM! BOOM!

Ugh… It was all over the tiled floor.

But, I live by the 10-second rule, so fear no more, I saved the cake. I took out a tub of vanilla ice cream, threw in chocolate cake crumbs, and voila! We have Chocolate Cake Ice Cream!

Fast forward a few years and we’re now shaping that cake ice cream into bite size balls! And rolling ’em in shredded coconut. Aaaaand we lived happily ever after. The end.

Oh, wait! I should tell you that this is how I now save leftover cakes or cupcakes. Sometimes I even make cake pops, other times I make cheesecake pops. Depends on my mood. But, if you have some leftover cake that is just sittin’ there getting all crusty, save it by throwing in a bit of ice cream and make these delicious truffles!

      Not difficult at all. Just melt it and pour it over the cake. Then mix. 🙂 You need to wet the cake enough so that you can roll it. It shouldn’t be dry. I hope this helps!! Let me know if you have any difficulties.

  1. Love this ice cream cake truffles… they are so cute. 🙂

    PS.. I totally get your idea of being born in the last century making you feel old. I know ever since I turned 40… everything makes me feel old. I remember when I was a teen… 40 was middle aged… Yikes.. I am so middle aged. 🙂

    They look delicious, even for a last-century gal like me, I think very fresh and modern-looking.
    So I sound old? I feel it.

  3. I know exactly what you mean! I cringe whenever I see the “to buy alcohol you must be born before 19..” sign. There was a time when I couldn’t wait to see my year on that sign. 😛

    Know what, these truffles would make me feel like a little kid again!! I’ll take 12, please.

  5. These look good,anything with cake is good 🙂

    I hear ya, I was born in 1979, but I always add I grew up as a child of the 80’s,sounds better for some reason lol.

    So, I’m reading this, thinking dammmn! You’re young 🙂 {Easy to say for someone born in the 60’s!!} That aside, these look divine & I would gladly pick up all the cake scraps to make them!!

  7. Kate, these look delicious and very easy. I think I can handle truffles if they’re this simple and delicious-looking. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Pinning now …

    Most of us have still been born in the 19 whatevers, so don’t sweat it. These ice cream treats are a great idea and sure to be a huge hit!

    Oh yes, there are so many ways to save a cake. Love this one, so original Kate! About being born in the last century, at least it´s not during the last years, like 1998… missing the new one by a sliver, jaja!
