If you're looking for something to do today then get ready for a frozen treat because it's National Raspberry Bombe Day!  That's right; bombe with an E!  Let's get right into celebrating National Raspberry Bombe Day!


Well, I think that most people would agree that ice cream is very popular. And even sherbet and sorbet is loved by many. Plus raspberries are not only ripe and ready for eating around this time of year but they also seem to be loved by quite a few people. So when you take raspberry flavored ice creams, sherbets or sorbets and have layers of each in a nicely formed frozen treat then a ton of people are going to want to eat it! It's a bit creative, it's tasty, it'll keep you cool and it's the reason for today's celebration. Popularity wins again and out pops another holiday!  A bombe or bombe glacée is a layered, frozen treat that is spread into a mold and frozen, layer by layer, so that the flavors stay divided. It's been around since at least 1882 and all you really need is some ice cream, sherbet or sorbet and a bowl to freeze it in. You take your frozen delight that you're going to use as the outside, whip it up a bit so it's easy to spread and then you spread it so that it's an even layer on the bottom and up the sides of the bowl. Freeze that layer and then you can do the same for the next layer or two.  The end result looks pretty nice and is a wonderful blend of flavors. To serve it you just slice down through it so that you get a bit of each flavor and you've got one beautiful dessert! But a common way to make a raspberry bomb is to take a vanilla ice cream and then give it a raspberry center, usually a sorbet. It's like a sweet treat hidden in the creaminess. But really you can use any kind of raspberry layers you want and you can even top it with some raspberries.  It's time to get creative!


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, if you'd like to take it easy then you might want to call up a few fancy restaurants in your area. I'm sure that some places whip up bombes on a daily basis and they may even have a raspberry one waiting for you. If you can locate such a restaurant then you're the luckiest celebrator of them all! Chomp down a meal and then get ready for a sweet blend of flavors.  But if you have a little time on your hands and want to be in control of the flavors and size of your raspberry bombe then plan on making your own at home. Go to your local store and pick up 2 or three different ice creams, sherbets or sorbets; just make sure that at least one of them has a raspberry flavor. And if you want to up the ante you can pick up some fresh or frozen raspberries too. Then just start whipping up your layers, freeze them one by one and then let the whole thing get solid for a while.  But, as I'm sure you're aware, CeleGREATERS are all about doing things differently... so keep that in mind when you make yours! You could make an inside out raspberry bombe if you wanted. Put down a layer of raspberry sorbet first, then a layer of vanilla ice cream and then pack the center with actual raspberries. Go all out and pour some homemade raspberry syrup on the raspberries before your freeze it one last time and you've just made one heck of a unique, raspberry bombe!  Have a great day and don't let your creation melt!
