Dominque Ansel, sweet genius and creator of the infamous Cronut, Waffogato, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot, has designed yet another innovative dessert in the form of a sundae in a can. His latest sweet treat is a play on a classic root beer float and features root beer flavored ice cream, stracciatella and mascarpone semifreddo. Because classic just isn't enough for the pastry chef, this sundae is topped with macerated cherries, toasted marshmallow, and Ansel's famous miniature meringues.
These limited edition Pop It! sundaes were designed for Lisa Perry and were inspired by Andy Warhol. New Yorkers can find Ansel selling these sundaes for $15 outside Lisa Perry's East Hampton Boutique this weekend. The price may seem high but the sundae actually serves two and Ansel is donating 20 percent of his sales to City Harvest.
