Stuff for your Christmas Holiday Feast
New Finds from Jon Donaire

Now I don't know if any of these cakes are "new" in general, but they are new too me. I haven't wandered over to the frozen cake freezer at Wal-mart in awhile, but I did Thursday night and boy was it hard not to grab one of these ultra tasty looking cakes.

There were at least 3 new Amazin' Mouthfuls jam-packed ice cream cakes in front of me, unfortunately I only snapped a pic of two of them. On the right is Strawberry Cheesecake which is creamy cheesecake flavored ice cream swirled with strawberry puree, on a graham crust, topped with strawberry puree, cheesecake morsels and whipped topping. I like the seemingly excessive looking use of the strawberry puree. The other is Butter Pecan. I may be crazy but I'm pretty sure the butter pecan is smiling at us. The description is creamy butter pecan ice cream swirled with caramel and praline pecans, on a graham crust, topped with whipped topping, praline pecans and caramel drizzle. (oh I wish I could remember the third one, maybe it was turtle)

Ok, these two were REALLY hard to resist. Jon Donaire now offers up something they call moussecake, and as I learned as a small child, mousse is one of my very favorite words. Heck, I'm pretty sure I can remember the very first time I had chocolate mousse! in fact, I'm pretty sure I went back for seconds! (Oh I love dessert buffets). Sorry, getting sidetracked here.

Ya got me, technically these aren't ice cream, but they are frozen, and they do look fantastic. I guess I would probably try the Chocolate Moussecake first, and then move on the Oreo Cookie Moussecake. Hmmm, I think I need to find Jon Donaire's marketing company and get all these wonderful looking treats up on the blog.

unless i missed something, there was no purchasing and eating of the tasty looking food in this post. what's going on? i expect all cakes viewed and available to have been consumed, enjoyed, and reviewed in the near future. remember, christmas is coming up, and the usual laws of calorie intake don't apply on this magical day. that's why this day is celebrated in the first place.

it was immensely hard not picking one of these up, but I'm trying hard to eat what I have first (i did pick up another treat though, I'll try to get it posted soon)
