Love (and Ice Cream) On Top

Dear Friends,

 With one quick glance at this photo you might think I’m sitting on a snow clad mountain back in the Bavarian Alps.

P1110733 - Copy

But when I add more detail you can see that what you thought was snow is actually ice cream. Yes, those are giant scoops of vanilla ice cream, topped off with a huge red cherry.


And the mountain I’m perched on top of is not of the hard rocky kind. It’s a mountain of pancakes, drenched in warm caramel sauce!


It’s only when you have all the details that you can fully appreciate this amazing spectacle. Imagine going into a pancake parlour, placing your order and having a stack like this arrive on your plate!

Would you be able to eat it all?

  1. Oh Justin. It is hot in Denver and that ice cream looks wonderful. I, Zeb the Duck, would eat some pancakes, but definitely all of the ice cream! I want some now. This is a great idea!

    • Zeb, maybe between you, me, the other ducks and your friend Channel the Bear we could polish the whole lot off! It’s worth a try. JB

  2. I love the whimsy. 🙂

  3. You fooled us all, I think.

  4. You know I could, Justin. I could eat three plates full! Bears get awfully hungry. That was kind of a trick you tried to pull on us, though, old chap. You’re funny, my furry friend. Manny

    • Manny, I knew you would see right through my tricky photo. You are too clever when it comes to pancakes. JB

      • I could smell the ice cream from California. Pancakes are way too easy. I could almost make out the type of cherry.

  5. Add some chocolate and I would be willing to give it a try!

    • Debbie, chocolate would be the perfect finishing touch. We are truly kindred spirits. JB

  6. Great story and twist. Thanks for the chuckle.

  7. Now I like pancakes, and I like ice cream but I would be very hard pressed to make any kind of impression in a portion of this size!
