Colin Bleasdale, an ice cream maker in Lancashire, UK, hopes to be entered in the Guinness Book of World Records for an ice cream concoction that he is making for the upcoming British royal wedding:
Mr Bleasdale, who teaches art at Larches House in Preston, said: “The ice cream will resemble a wedding posy that will be covered in fake jewels made from jelly or melted toffee.
“Fifteen cones will be used to create the bouquet and each one will be covered with real gold leaves. I may also include a champagne sorbet and black truffles.”
Mr. Bleasdale hopes to top his creation with a large sapphire. Question: if one wanted to make the world's most expensive ice cream, couldn't one just get a generic brand then charge a really high price for it? Anyway, I post this story with some hesitation, keeping in mind Tamara Keel's admonition about Americans and royalty:
If George Washington knew you were Tweeting about the British royal wedding, he'd snatch the iPhone from your hand and kick your ass.
