Here at High Point Creamery, we have many mottos. One of them is, "Why eat cake, when you can eat more ice cream?" And, ok, we're not total cake-haters. In fact, we're pretty equal opportunity dessert lovers. But, what if it was a cake... made of ice cream... and then some more ice cream... with a little more - you got it - ice cream!
Enter the Bombe. It's pronounced like, "That's the bombe!" "It's the bombe dot com!" - fancier looking than it sounds, until you dig into the cannonball-shaped dessert's origins. It's less fussy than a Baked Alaska, a bit more refined than your average grocery store cooler ice cream cake. A classic French dessert, the original bombe usually incorporated layers of meringue with ice cream. But - you got it - "why eat meringue, when you can eat more ice cream?"
Chef owner Erika Thomas attributed her decision to create a bombe for High Point Creamery a little bit to her French heritage, and a lot a bit to one of her personal mottos: "We don't make cake. We make ice cream." The bombe was her way of showcasing the vast number of combinations we can create with our fresh, unique flavors.
