An ice cream shop in Sydney Australia is making a lot of success by serving amazing frozen gelato in the shape of beautiful flowers.
The company called i-Creamy Artisan Gelato, serves 24 different homemade flavors, which are inspired by Asian desserts. You can find flavors like Thai milk tea, palm sugar, black sesame, white chocolate miso and durian, alongside with the classics like hazelnut, tiramisu and vanilla, and novelty flavors like beer and popcorn.
Creating a rose-shaped gelato is a slow but satisfying process. Instead of using a classic ice cream scoop, the i-Creamy team uses a spatula to form the “petals” and press them into the cone. The petals are get bigger from the inside out, giving the finished flowers a more realistic look.
Italian style frozen gelato is different from normal ice cream: it is made with whole milk, stirred at a lower speed, and served at a higher temperature.
Gelato was invented by Italian chef Bernardo Buontalenti in Florence during the Renaissance period. Even though its been around the 1600s it wasn`t until 1920s that it`s popularity really kicked off. If you happen to visit the beautiful city of Florence you will find there is a frozen gelato flavor called Buontalenti which is in homage of the creator of this desert.
The traditional frozen gelato flavors are vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut, pistachio, cream (also known as custard), and Stracciatella (gelato with chocolate chunks). But since if you visit an Italian ice cream shop you will discover different shops have their own unique frozen gelato flavors such as melon, raspberry, mango, and pineapple.
