If you’ve been following JavaCucpake for the last four years you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of my local gelato store Pinguino Eis in Grafenwoehr, Germany.  Last September, Phillip (the owner) and Luca allowed me into their store to view the process of making the gelato.  It was so fascinating to see the process first hand how they make the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever had.

Recently, Pinguino Eis began offering ice cream cakes or Eiskuchen in addition to all the other deliciousness they serve at their cafe.   This happened to be perfect timing because my husband Dave requested and ice cream cake for his birthday!

We chatted with Ariana (co-owner) about the flavors we wanted and she wrote down all the details.  Dave had a vision of her perfect ice cream cake and we knew that vision could be fulfilled by our friends at Pinguino!

Can can think of anything more delicious than this?  Not only is all their gelato fresh made daily, but the entire cake was made by hand from scratch!  This is why I love living in Germany so much.  Everything is made by hand with love.  It’s just the only way they know how to do things here.


A big thanks to Phillip, Ariana, Luca and the entire crew at Pinguino Eis for helping make Dave’s birthday so special!
