If you’ve ever spent time looking at the majesty of the night sky and contemplating what it would be like to grab one of those heavenly celestial bodies and give ‘er a good lickin’, wonder no longer.
From London-based design firm Doshi Levien comes new Ice Moons for Häagen-Dazs, moon-shaped ice cream cakes designed to combine the “ephemeral” nature of ice cream with the “fantasy, adventure [and] imagination” of our favorite lunar body.
According to the firm’s Facebook page, these spacey spheres — designed for Christmas 2012 — take their inspiration from a children’s Bollywood song, Georges Méliès 1902 science fiction film Le Voyage dans la Lune and the relief work of Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian.
Dezeen Magazine explains, “The white moon consists of a pistachio biscuit base, layers of macadamia nut ice cream and meringue and a coating of raspberry ice cream,” while “the orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream and salted caramel and a coating of vanilla ice cream.”
Unfortunately no word yet on pricing or availability, but if this is what the future of astronaut food looks like, it’s about freaking time.
