    Oh my, oh my, oh my! WOOHOO!
    Huge congratulations my dear! Last year a visitors award and this year you scored it all with a 1st place!
    So proud!

      Thanks, Mike! I really appreciate it! I was actually worried that this one was kind of boring in comparison to some of the others at the Takedown. But I had a real vision of what I wanted and am so happy that it came very close!

      One day I am sure that you will be in town for a Takedown! Or even the next time you are in town, I’ll make some for you!

    Yay! Congratulations! I am so proud of you. All that hard work and years of palate refining paid off. Your ice cream sound incredible.

    Please remember us, your fans and minions when you are famous.

    No seriously, looks like a great turn out, you did good.

    Congratulations, dear Daisy! I’m soooo proud to know you! And I wish I could be there. To support, I mean (not that I would have refused to taste the winning batch – or any of the “test drives” that preceded the final version ; -) ).

      Aw, thank you Undina! I wish you could have been there too. One day I am certain that we’ll be able to pull off a bi-coastal tasting. Guinea pigs, er, friends are always welcome!

  4. Edna

    Congratulations!! As someone who loves wordplay I think you deserved to win for the name alone! Can’t wait to hear more about it 🙂

      Thank you so much, Edna! I can’t take credit for the name; another friend came up with it. It’s a good thing too because ¡Soy Ameri-mango-cana! was a terrible, terrible alternative!

      I know! The organizer always makes sure that the prizes are great. Never thought that I would win a Kitchenaid mixer though! It’s a great surprise. Now just have to figure out where to put it…

    What! So awesome Daisy! Way to go!! Y tu Mango Tambien is … possibly the best mango-frozen-dessert-name I’ve ever heard. I can’t wait for the recipe — sounds like it might be spicy, which is so where my cold-treat mind is these days. Congratulations on another well-deserved accolade lady. Yum yum.

    • baconbiscuit212

      Thank you, Hannah! And thanks for the the kind words about the name! I was a little apprehensive that it was a little racy, but my helper told me that a spicy sorbet needs a spicy name.

      As for it’s spiciness, it’s really not spicy at all — or at least not to me and probably not to you either. I used a Mexican chili seasoning called Tajin Classico, which is sort of a very common fruit seasoning south of the border. It’s very inexpensive and worth having around the house.
