This cool, creamy, delectable treat has been around since the Ancient Romans. By the 1700’s the dessert was spreading like wild fire through Europe. It’s not surprising that our founding fathers, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were all big fans of the creamy dessert.

George Washington enjoyed the treat so much he made it a staple on the menu at Mount Vernon, his home in Virginia. The dessert became a status symbol of the upperclass because it was so labor intensive to make and keep.

First Lady, Dolly Madison, was also a huge fan. Her personal favorite was oyster ice cream. I love ice cream, and I love oysters, but the combination does not sound very appetizing.

If you still can’t get enough of the creamy delight consider incorporating the dessert into your home’s decor. Here are three of my favorite ice cream prints by the talented Susannah Raine of Zouzous basement. I actually have the nutty buddy hanging in my house. I love it!
