The American ice cream brand Häagen-Dasz has a tradition of incorporating famous designers into their culinary christmas products. In past years, people could enjoy creations by Front design and Doshi Levien during christmas dinners. This year, the Japanese design studio Nendo spent some hours in the fridge to create an ice cream cake village for Häagen Dasz. This special creation will be sold at the Champs Elysées Häagen-Dasz shop in Paris throughout the winter festive season. For those with large family dinners: different cakes can be connected to each other using chocolate bridges.
“Christmas is about homecoming, about spending time together with family, so we created a cake that’s a small village, composed of houses clustered closely together,” said the Nendo designers. “We thought the winter wonderland scene would emphasise the warmth and cheer inside each home.”
