Contrary to popular belief, the moon is not made of cheese. But if you still feel compelled to nom on a natural satellite, then Häagen-Dazs’ latest treat will appeal to your appetite. (Let’s be frank, everybody will want a bite of this.)
The moon-shaped (complete with craters) ice-cream cakes were designed by Doshi Levien for the holiday season, inspired by a variety of sources, according to dezeen magazine.
Inside are layers of flayers. The white moon starts with a pistachio biscuit base, macadamia nut ice cream, meringue and is coated with raspberry ice cream. The orange moon has a crunchy chocolate base, nutty ice cream, salted caramel and is coated with vanilla ice cream.
“We love the ephemeral nature of ice cream and design to be eaten; we never had a design meeting before in which we ate the prototype,” the designers said. Clearly, they poured a lot of hard work into perfecting these cakes.
