When the ice cream is good, the cone is normally an afterthought, right? But that’s when we’re talking about hard, boring cones, not light and deliciously fluffy waffles. This California ice cream shop creates unique treats where the ice cream—and the cone—get to shine.
Cauldron Ice Cream Shop is unique for a few different reasons. For one, it serves its ice cream on puffles, which are Hong Kong-style waffles. The puffles have big bubbles on them, which is what makes them so light and airy and impossible to resist.
Another thing that makes the shop so unique? Both the puffles and the ice cream are made to order. That means that while someone is making your warm and soft puffle, they’re also whipping up your ice cream in a Kitchenaid using liquid nitrogen. This results in ice cream that’s in between a hard scoop and a soft-serve and employees are trained to find that perfect consistency.
In the end, depending on your treat, your ice cream will also be hand-shaped into a rose using just the scooper. Talk about talent!
Despite this process, the shop strives to give you a delicious cone or cup in under five minutes. In the video above, you’ll see how some of the shop’s most delicious flavors like Early Grey Lavender, S’mores, and Salted Caramel are made on original and red velvet puffles.
Once you watch it, you won’t be able to resist taking a trip to shop for yourself! Honestly, it’s worth it for the smell alone! You can find Cauldron Ice Cream shops in California and Texas, as well as Toronto, Canada. You can check if you have one located near you here.
