Before we start craving apple pie and bread pudding, we asked photographer Melissa Hom to capture the ten most creative sundaes of summer. In feeding into the lowbrow movements of the season, restaurants have put their own spins on the pleasure-inducing, recession-friendly combination of frozen cream, homemade sauces, and crunchy, textured things. Click through the slideshow to see specimens from the General Greene, Anthos Upstairs, Benoit, DBGB, Braeburn, the Redhead, Dessert Club, Kyotofu (for the lacto-averse), Buttermilk Channel, and of course, Locanda Verde, where pastry chef Karen DeMascos Fantasia satisfies at least two dessert fans.
