Nothing says summer to me like the tart creamy sweetness of raspberry ripple ice cream. Especially when it’s full of huge fresh juicy berries. Yum! There’s something about that contrast that is as refreshing as it is tasty.
While I was designing ‘Raspberry Ripple’, I sought to emulate the way the creamy vanilla and just-sweet raspberry complement each other. It had to be simple and straightforward, with a tang of something saucy to keep things interesting. What I came up with was a delicate balance of rippling lace, streams of wrapped cables and a solid, reliable plain rib. Delicious!
