      If I have had a baking sad story, I can tell you more successful ones at least. That disappointment I felt with the cupcake disaster that happened the first time I tried to make buttercream frosting did not stop me from baking.

Well, summer is almost over but it is not too late to share how delicious these ice cream flavors are from Selecta.   These two new ice cream flavors are included in Selecta Hershey’s collection and my choices. I have loved Rocky Road and Double Dutch ever since the first time I tasted the said flavors but just like any one, I too would like to go out of what I consider as “ice cream comfort zone” haha! I eagerly…
