Delightful Rose-Shaped Scoops of Gelato Are Popping Up All Over Instagram

First, there were the adorable fish-shaped cones. Then, alcohol-infused ice cream made its boozy debut. And now, social media has been abuzz with a new frozen treat trend: flower gelato. Created by i-Creamy, a Sydney-based gelateria, the rose-shaped scoops are a fancy and floral alternative to the traditional ice cream cone.

Using a special silver spatula, delicate “petals” are gently scooped from the gelato tubs. They are then layered onto a waffle cone from the inside-out, forming a spiral of slivers that eventually resembles a beautiful blooming rose. Each treat requires about 20 pretty petals, which can be carved from as many or as little different flavors as the customer wants. And, with 24 options available—including the classics like vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate, as well as some more daring choices, like popcorn, Thai milk tea, and black sesame—it must be hard to not get carried away!

Although i-Creamy isn't the first sweet shop to create blossom-inspired ice cream cones, it is the first to do so in Australia. Though, given it's growing popularity, we don't imagine it'll be the last.

See some succulent examples of the flower gelato trend below.
