Frozen Fans Will Love Disney Frozen Sparkle Anna of Arendelle Doll

My 4 year old daughter can't get enough of the movie Frozen. I have to admit, I truly enjoyed the movie too and the songs are now stuck in our heads.

This Disney 3D animated musical takes place in an imaginary land called Arendelle. Loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's chilly Nordic-based classic The Snow Queen, Frozen is centered around sisters Anna and Elsa, daughters of the King and Queen of Arendelle. While one sister (Elsa) stays isolated filled with fear, the other sister (Anna) is bursting with energy and life. A real contrast in character. This Disney Frozen Sparkle Anna of Arendelle Doll delivers the younger of the two sisters in faithful detail. Let's step inside the frozen fantasy environment of Arendelle and take a closer look at young Anna.

Oreo Ice Cream Cake

My son just had a birthday. Of course there must be a cake. Some of the kids were asking for ice cream cake. Buying one is quite expensive. So, once again, I had to turn to Mr. Google to see if I could make one myself. This is what I came up with at the end: Oreo Ice Cream Cake.

It's pretty easy to make and the kids (plus friends) gave it a thumbs up.

Here's how I did it:

1. Baked a Lemon Cake. Of course I didn't do it from scratch. Just got a box of the shelves (Pillsbury). Most people use chocolate cake but the tangy lemon really blended nicely with my fudge topping.

2. Slice the cake into 2 layers so you can sandwich the ice cream in between. Put one layer at the bottom of your cake tray.

3. Crush a packet of Oreos. If you want more Oreos, just crush more. Mix it with your choice of ice cream. Vanilla, chocolate or Cookies N Cream flavor works well.

4. The ice cream has to be a little bit soft. Scoop out the ice cream and make a layer on top of the cake.

5. Put another layer of cake on top of the ice cream. Put back in the freezer so the ice cream hardens up.

6. Meanwhile, make some chocolate hot fudge . You can find a recipe that you like but I used this recepi:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 tbs butter

7. Pour the chocolate hot fudge on top of the cake layer. Return the cake to the freezer.

8. Just before you serve the cake, top off the cake with swirls of whip cream. Add a little bit more crushed Oreos to that.

I hope my directions make sense. You're basically just putting one layer on top of another. Modify to your liking.

Leave a comment to tell me what you think.

Easy Hot Dog Buns For School or Snack

One of my friends shared with me this fried hot dog bun after church and it was really yummy. My kids tell me that they sell it at the school canteen too (RM1 each). It is so easy to make and the kids love it. If you're out of ideas on what to pack for your kid's recess time, this is something to consider.

 All you need is bread, hotdogs and a rolling pin. Just put the hotdogs (here we call them sausages) in boiling water to cook.

Use the rolling pin to flatten the bread. Place a hotdog on top of it and roll it up. 

Fry it in oil. Make sure the oil is not too hot as it can get burned really fast. Add ketchup, chilli sauce or mayonnaise. Its also yummy just eating it plain.
