"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

4 eggs
3/4 c. sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 T. butter, melted
2 pints Haagen Dazs ice cream
Vanilla extract
1 qt. heavy shipping cream
Confectioner's sugar
Decorations of your choice (fresh berries, candy, sprinkles, etc.)

Preheat over to 425. Line lipped cookie sheet with foil and grease generously. Beat eggs with sugar on high for 10-15 minutes until VERY thick and foamy. Sift flour with baking powder. Gently fold into egg mixture. Add vanilla and melted butter mix carefully. Pour batter into pan and spread evenly. Bake in over for 8-10 minutes until knife comes out clean.

Drench dishtowel with cold water and wring out well. Lay dishtowel on counter and sprinkle generously with confectioners sugar. Flip towel over cake to cover (sugar side against cake). Place another cookie sheet over towel and flip everything over onto new cookie sheet. Remove cookie sheet cake was cooked in. Peel tin foil off of cake. Roll dishtowel and cake together longest side to longest side. FREEZE dishtowel and cake.

When it is completely frozen (it doesn't take that long) remove from freezer. Unroll cake. Cut off containers from ice cream. Place each pint next to each other on the cake. Roll cake around ice cream and squeeze it a little to make the log even and to secure the cake to the ice cream. Cut cake ends off to even roll. Place on serving plate with open seam down. Put back in freezer.

Make whipped cream--whip heavy cream until it thickens. Add vanilla and sugar to taste. Frost log generously with whipped cream and make it look like snow peaks. DECORATE!!!!!! You can use anything you like...fresh berries, candy, sprinkles, etc. The possibilities are endless.
