Japanese Design Studio Nendo has created a textbook execution of what would it be like to live in a world made from ice cream and cakes. The studio has created miniature villages, inhabited with milk chocolate houses filled with fudge and pieces of caramelized nuts. Each house displays a different rooftop pattern, and is dusted with white chocolate powder, so that the village is nestled gently and quietly in the snow.
The cake villages come in two flavors: a caramel and nut-based cake with milk chocolate houses, and an orange and dried fruit-based cake with berry-scented chocolate houses. Customers who buy more than one cake will receive chocolate bridges. The bridges allow customers to connect several villages to each other, turning the cakes into big villages on the tabletop for large parties. The surface of each cake is designed like an undulating landscape, so that the cakes fit together beautifully regardless of how they’re placed together.
The delectable villages will be sold at the Champs Élysées Häagen-Dazs shop in Paris during the winter festive season to remind people to go home for the holidays. “Christmas is about homecoming, about spending time together with family, so we created a cake that’s a small village, composed of houses clustered closely together,” said the designers. “We thought the winter wonderland scene would emphasize the warmth and cheer inside each home.”
