everyone knows that the only thing better than ice cream is pink ice cream. and the only thing better than pink ice cream is pink ice cream that i made with my own magical, god-like hands of creation. plus sprinkles. obviously.
bubble gum ice cream without the obstacle of actual gum fragments taking up valuable real estate that could be occupied by more ice cream has been something bear and i have dreamed of all our lives. we rule.
i started with this recipe - added way more pink - and obviously scrapped the gum fragments because gum fragments are the WORST.
waiting for the base to chill is the longest four hours of your life, but it's totally worth it when you can finally watch it hypnotically churn for a half hour.
when the custard base is churning it's known as the transformation stage because it slowly starts to change or "transform" into cream that has been iced. the curing stage is where it hangs out in the freezer for another eternity and develops (cures) into serious business ice cream.
love and zero gum fragments,
