I’m not particularly fond of sweets but I’m willing to make an exception for Häagen-Dazs’ Ice Moon Ice Cream Cakes that are coming this Christmas. Who knew ice cream could be done up artistically?

Ice Moon WhiteWhat you see above looks like the moon (or a sculpture of it) but it’s actually Häagen-Dazs’ Ice Moon dessert. These ice cream cakes might look simple on the outside, but they’re just brimming with flavor and delightful fillings on the inside.

The white moon consists of a pistachio biscuit base, layers of macadamia nut ice cream and meringue and a coating of raspberry ice cream. The orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream and salted caramel and a coating of vanilla ice cream.

The Ice Moon is a result of the efforts of Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien of Doshi Levien after the ice cream giant hired them to create the ice cream cakes for this Christmas season. I think they did a marvelous job at incorporating the jolly flavors of the holidays with the Ice Moon.

As to why they chose the moon, Doshi Levien explained:

We imagined the shape and texture of an ice cream scoop being like the moon as in a famous childhood Bollywood song. We were reminded of the stop frame movie Le Voyage dans la Lune by Georges Méliès. We were inspired by Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian’s relief work of 1929. We found some early examples of the ‘Bombes’ ice-cream that are near spherical.
