Get ready to experience the Ice Moon, a densely filled moon-shaped ice cream cake created by London designers Doshi Levien for Häagen-Dazs.

Complete with smooth craters, these artistic pieces of food art will be available in time for Christmas, but before we go any further, I suppose you’d like to know what is in them.

The white moon consists of a pistachio biscuit base, layers of macadamia nut ice cream and meringue and a coating of raspberry ice cream. The orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream and salted caramel and a coating of vanilla ice cream.

Designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien say they were inspired by this still of Georges Méliès’ 1902 silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune.

“Our concept is almost spherical, so the ice cream has to be moulded in two separate parts and then put together without seeing the join,” explain the designers.

“We love the ephemeral nature of ice cream and design to be eaten; we never had a design meeting before in which we ate the prototype.”
