Over Thursday and Friday I made Cherries Jubilee with Butter Crunch Icecream – every step by hand and homemade. How can dessert take 2 days to prepare you ask? Well, here is my visual history…what you don’t get to see is all the chilling time, churning time, settling time, and so on. It was too delicious for words though!
