I decided to take a break from sherbet for a bit and go in a more creative ice cream path. And so I present to you a bucket of "Birthday Cake Ice Cream" with a chunk of waffle cone on the side, recolored from crocobaura's original "Vanilla Ice Cream". Another delicious treat for your sims in the summertime!

Birthday Cake Ice Cream? Whaaat?
I'm unsure if this is popular in other countries, but here in the U.S. I know it's a very popular flavor. (At least where I live) The ice cream consists of a vanilla ice cream base with ribbons of blue icing and chunks of actual cake inside the ice cream. And of course it wouldn't be birthday cake without sprinkles, right? It's very tasty and one of my top choices when it comes to ice creams. It's perfect for your sim's birthday parties or summer ice cream shops. (Because I know that's a popular trend right now)

Details You Ought to Know...

Downloading: I have created two different buckets to contain this bucket of fun, a Simlish and English version. There is text on the side of the bucket and so I created two versions for people who like an all Simlish game. DOWNLOAD ONLY ONE TYPE. Both buckets have the same guids so for your own sanity, please download only one zip. Both contain everything you need for the ice cream to work in game so there's nothing to worry about. (They are very clearly marked)

What You Are Getting: Each zipped file has 3 items: a mesh of the ice cream itself, a English/Simlish bucket, and a custom plate for the ice cream. The original creator of this mesh, crocobaura, designed a custom plate and you need it in your downloads folder for this to work. But like I mentioned before, everything you need is in each zip (If you have downloaded my sherbets or any other popular recolors of this mesh, you most likely have the plate in your downloads folder already)

Cooking/Serving: The sherbet has been cloned from base game gelatin, and so your sim won't need any cooking skill to pop it out of the fridge. You will find it under "Serve Dessert..." and "Make/Make Many..." if you have the OFB expansion pack. And as per the norm, it serves 6 sims.

Fork vs. Spoon Dilemma: If you downloaded or saw my Lime Sherbet upload, you'll know that my computer has been having trouble with spoons. And because of this, I am unable to test this upload with a spoon. So, your sim gets to eat it with a fork Yes, I know it's weird but if you seriously have a problem with it I suggest checking out this thread to convert the fork to a spoon for your Birthday Cake Ice Cream. I apologize for any inconvenience.
