Sitting on the precipice of summer, we're slowly being reminded of visions of lovely weather, sunny skies, lazy beach days, and ice cold refreshment of any sort. It's an ideal situation, really, especially when we're at the height of our threshold for heat and suddenly come upon any sort of cold relief. But how would you feel if I told you that said cold relief came in the form of a 25-pound ice cream cake?
Wipe that (understandably) blank look off your face, friend, because this isn't a make-believe scenario when you're at Barton G. That's because the restaurant is famously known for their over-the-top and outlandish menu items. Past desserts at the spot pale in comparison to their newest creation, though, as the 'Oops! I Dropped My Ice Cream', is an approximately 25-pound ice cream cake that's crowned with a four-foot tall cinnamon sugar cone.
Barton G.'s Corporate Executive Pastry Chef, Jessica Scott, is the mastermind behind this ice cold behemoth, which is made up of nine combined layers of vanilla cake, chocolate frosting, strawberry ice cream, chocolate crumble, and whipped cream. "The idea of the cinnamon sugar ice cream cone came from my childhood! Every single year on my birthday, my family would take me out to get Mexican food and it would always end with a vanilla ice cream cone with a flaky cinnamon sugar crust," gushed Chef Scott.
Now Barton G. is not all flair without substance, as their high-end restaurant quality dishes live up to every bit of hype they generate on their own. For instance, to ensure you're getting the freshest giant ice cream cake, the cake layers and ice cream layers are combined right before ordering so that your dessert is fresh and not frozen.
So whether you're feeling like the brain freeze of the century or can squad up with your fellow ice cream loving friends, the 'Oops! I Dropped My Ice Cream' at Barton G. is available at their Los Angeles, Miami, and Chicago locations, and is your ticket to cold, creamy summer bliss.
