An idea can change a crumbled cake!

Remember the crumbled cake about which I had mentioned in the earlier post! With the pieces of crumbled cake and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each piece, I made a delicious dessert and had it after our dinner....*smiles*.....Well, I was able to cut two decent triangular pieces out of the crumbled pieces for the photo sessions...*winks*...
