55 Over-the-Top Desserts

From Gold Leaf Gelato Cones to Rainbow Unicorn Pizzas

— August 16, 2017 — Pop Culture
From colorful lasagna-like birthday cakes to ice cream and fruit-filled poke bowls, these over-the-top desserts showcase the maximalism-inspired options that provide experimental foodies with an aesthetically pleasing treat that is also ripe for sharing on social media.

The i-Creamery in Sydney, Australia, has designed a new gelato experience that is sure to delight those with a penchant for florals. The i-Creamery has made rose-inspired gelato blooms available in a variety of flavors.

Separately, the 'Summer Poutine' was a limited time only dessert created by foodora Montreal and two local dessert destinations (M Churros Mme Banane and Felix & Cacao) in order to honor National Ice Cream Day 2017. Combining vanilla soft serve ice cream and fresh churros, the 'Summer Poutine' highlighted the multi-dimensional experience consumers are beginning to expect out of all dining experiences.
