No, you haven't hallucinated and found yourself in Wonka's factory. (Whatever buzzkill of a friend told you lollipops don't grow on trees was sadly mistaken.) Served with a side of bubble gum whipped cream, chef David Burke's whimsical Cheesecake Lollipop Tree is a dessert that delivers on taste long after the novelty has worn off. But onto more important matters: when will Burke's eatery be patenting the fizzy lifting drinks?! We need that.
