Google Doodle Celebrates 119th anniversary of Ice Cream Sundae

Today's Google Doolde image honors the 119th birthday of the first documented ice cream sundae.

The pastel-colored image replaces the two Os in the Google logo with a cherry-topped ice cream sundae.

There is some controversy about exactly who invented the first ice cream sundae, but the first historically documented effort came about on April 3rd 1892, in Ithaca, New York.

The dessert, characterised by a syrup-drizzled scoop of vanilla ice cream with a wafer and cherry on top, is thought to have been created in 1892 when New York soda fountain proprietor Chester Platt served the dish to church minister John Scott.

Others believe the Sundae was invented after an ice cream truck collided with a syrup tanker.

The ice cream was subsequently named after the Sabbath and served every Sunday in a variety of flavours.

This Doodle prompts the speculation that the Google's code-named "Ice Cream" operating system may be released shortly.

The "Ice Cream" operating system is expected to be a combination of Android 3.0 and Android 2.3/2.4, called Honeycomb and Gingerbread respectively.
