Viral Video: Watch How Japanese Dessert Lovers Are Elevating Ice Cream With Edible Flowers

Japanese food stands out for creativity and aesthetic value. We landed on something new and exciting in the world of Japanese desserts — edible flower ice cream that is almost too pretty to eat! Most people are familiar with roses being carved out of whipped cream and placed on top of cakes, but now ice-cream makers in Japan are taking their edible art game to the next level. For this dessert, they carve gorgeous roses and small leaves from ice cream, right in front of your eyes. 

This ice cream trending on social media is served at the ‘(THISIS) SHIZEN’ cafe in Kyoto, Japan. The viral video, which has amassed more than 3 million views, features an ice cream bouquet with beautiful edible flowers. You can see three real-like roses on a cone — in colours red, blue and yellow. The gap between the flowers is filled with beautiful, tiny green leaves that are also made from ice cream. For this ice cream cone, you can choose up to 3 different colors for the flowers, which are crafted on top of vanilla ice cream and puffed rice. As seen in the video, these flowers are shaped out of a piping bag and the customers get both a visual and sweet treat.
