Ice Cream on a Cotton-Candy Cloud? So Dreamy!
The dessert of your childhood dreams — or, well, it would definitely have been, if you had thought about it — is now a reality. Hello, soft-serve ice cream nestled in a humongous cloud of cotton candy (pink or blue, of course) and toppings galore. Think sweet treats like M&M’s, smashed candy bars like Twix and KitKats, crumbled cookies, caramel corn, Pop Rocks, chocolate syrup, Gummi Bears, even breakfast cereal.
The ice cream/cotton candy confections are a specialty at Room for Dessert by Casa Verde, a rooftop cafe in Cebu City, Philippines — and people on Instagram and in the food-blogosphere are pretty darn into them.
Milk Train in London offers a similar delicacy, while exploring a slightly funkier ice cream color palette, set off against a pure white cotton-candy pouf. Last summer, the Covent Garden cafe’s creations went viral, generating lines out the door that have apparently remained.
As one commenter on Milk Train’s Instagram page recently noted, “Ice cream solves everything.” Truth. Especially when it’s perched in a sweet, heavenly cloud as perfect as a day at the circus. (Minus the clowns.)
