OH YES. I DID. Like many Americans, we celebrated the 4th with friends, food, and fireworks. In coming up with the perfect dessert, I took into consideration the King's definition of a dessert. I decided ice-cream would be good to cool everyone down in the sweltering heat. Then I concluded that one of my favorite flavors of ice-cream is cake batter. After that decision was made, I had to amp up the festive quotient. It had to be red, white, and blue for the occasion. Obvi.
It went great with brownies which are also extremely American (*FUN FACT: a cross between cake and a cookie, it became popular in the early twentieth century).
