It might look like a moon, but it’s actually an ice cream cake. Haagen-Dazs invited London-based design office Doshi Levien design a cake for Christmas 2012. The ice cream is molded into two separate parts and then put together.
According to Doshi Levien’s Facebook page, they were inspired by Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian’s relief work of 1929. They also found some early examples of the ice cream that are near spherical.
The orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream, salted caramel, and a coating of vanilla ice cream.
