Banana Split Bombe from Martha Stewart

Ice cream bombes are retro yet fancy, and definitely impressive enough to be the star of the table at a celebration. Here are five fresh takes on this Victorian-era dessert:

&bull 1 Banana Split Bombe from Martha Stewart: Layers of chocolate, vanilla and pistachio ice cream over banana cake, drizzled in chocolate? You had me at "banana split."

2 Watermelon Bombe from Martha Stewart: The most famous bombe of the bunch.

3 Cantaloupe, Honeydew & Almond Bombe from Gourmet: Another trompe l'oeil bombe, made to look like a cantaloupe.

4 Lemon-Raspberry Ice Cream Bombes from Bon Appetit: These single-serving bombes are filled with raspberry sorbet and soft lemon cream.

5 Panettone & Cassata Ice Cream Bombe from Foodie and the Chef: This bombe uses leftover panettone instead of cake!

Have you ever made an ice cream bombe?
