Sunday’s Google Doodle: Sundae

As Google-lovers know, the search engine sure does like to doodle and today, Sunday, its doodle represents the 119th anniversary of the first documented ice-cream sundae, which was allegedly first created on, April 3, 1892 in New York. It was Chester Platt and John M. Scott who were behind the yummy cream dessert. So Google used this anniversary today to develop the logo.

According to San Francisco resident Bill Richardson said that “it’s their [Google] way of competing with Bing’s daily eye candy.”
So what’s in an ice cream sundae? It’s a whole bunch of yummy sweet desserts, comprising ice cream (often in different flavors), delicious sauce, syrups and toppings, whipped cream and perhaps a cherry on top.
