    Whew! I’m so glad I had this Cherry Ice Cream Chocolate Mousse Cake made before my vacation. It’s been sitting and waiting to be shared with you for a while now…
    Well, honestly, longer than that… In fact, I made this dessert last year! That’s right. This cake was made last fall. I’ve moved it month after month for something else.
    Everyone is going to love this Cherry Ice Cream and Chocolate Mousse Cake.

    It wasn’t really colored for a fall treat. And it wasn’t really red enough for a Christmas dessert. Then it was too cold to share ice cream, so I’ve held on to it.

    Until now! We’ve passed the first week of daylight savings time change, today is St. Patrick’s Day and I it’s been in the upper 50’s and low 60’s in West Virginia, which means that Spring is on the way!

    I love spring and everything about it. The warm weather, the colors coming back to the yard, the birdies waking me up in the morning, and the warmer weather.


    Yep, the warm weather really does make me happy. I’ve been cold and miserable for the the past three months and I am so happy that I no longer have to wear my down parka. I also cracked my windows open to let in some fresh air while I was cleaning the house.

    No more knee high socks. No more heavy sweaters. No more snow days. Woo hoo!!

    Here’s to spring! Spring Flowers, spring birds, and spring cleaning.
