I’ve never had a Christmas without this dessert. If you’ve been around the cafe for a while, you can figure out that this will by my 41st Christmas. That’s a lot of Oreo Peppermint Ice Cream Cakes. Who knows how long my grandmother (Popa’s mother) made this treat before I joined the scene?!? All I know is it wouldn’t be Christmas without this sweet tradition.
Mia took over the honor of making the cake when Grandma was no longer able. And we are all grateful she’s kept the tradition alive, especially Popa and my brother. This year, I’m stealing the duty from Mia. Mostly, so I can share the love of our family’s Christmas cake with you.
