|Strawberry ice cream is seasonable for May and June.|
Ice cream making was a closely guarded secret and the first recipe written in English did not appear until 1718. The interest and demand for ice cream meant that wealthy people built ice houses on their estates.
In the 19th century, ice cream manufacture was simplified with the introduction of the ice cream machine in 1843 in England and America. The machine was a wooden bucket that was filled with ice and salt and had a handle which rotated a paddle or dasher to churn the ice cream in a central metal container. Agnes Marshall became known as the Queen of Ices for her ice cream recipes and was granted a patent for her improved ice cream machine which used liquid nitrogen. Her 1888 cookery book included a recipe for "cornets with cream", possibly the earliest publication of the edible ice cream cone.

I don't know what you think, but to me she looks a little too skinny to be an expert on ice cream....
But anyway, I struck lucky as my searches led me to Jell-o! Yes, apparently to make your ice cream, a really good way is to use Jell-o dissolvable crystals. Who knew?

Anyway, I discovered it is impossible to work with such delicious pictures without having to go and get a real bowl of Cornish ice cream and raspberries for myself. Honestly, I tried really very hard but it simply can't be done (but it's ok Abbott's says it's good for you!)
You will have to wait to see the final name art as it is going to be a present but in the meantime perhaps you will enjoy some ice cream yourself!
