What is the term for this texture? My mind wants to say "fractured", but that doesn't quite seem right.cheesecake-c.jpg ice cream.jpg IMG_0552 (1280x960).jpg

Ok, 'Delamination'

Failure, fracture.

His (Ragdoll - growing out from a shave) fur always looks like that, even when brushed. :blink:

I like "delamination", thanks!

Efflorescent? Efflorescence (which means "to flower out" in French)

I'm gonna throw out 'feathered'...
So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I've heard it referred to as a "random scaling effect" that is, forming scales, thick and thin, on the outer surface as the material is manipulated.

"Ragged" is the term used in pastries.

None of these seem quite right. There are no layers in ice cream to delaminate, so that can't be it.

An efflorescence is an out-blooming, like a tuft of mold on a cheese, which isn't quite right.

The fractures or whatever they are called come from the serving spoon/knife being cold enough to partialy adhere to the cold ice cream and tear it as it moves through. A hot spoon wouldn't do this, nor would warmish ice cream.

I suggest that we name it after you...its the Lame Username Effect.

I can't say no. I've always been fascinated with eponymous terms. Bovie, Alyce clamp, Dyson sphere... How fun to have my own that applies to ice cream and cheesecake.

It occurred to me that I should move this to a pastry thread. If pastry chefs call it "ragged", I am content.
