Japanese design firm Nendo has dabbled in the playful redesign of everything from birdhouses to textile chairs–and the studio can now add ice cream cakes to that list. Created for the Champs Élysées Häagen-Dazs shop in Paris, the snowy white ice cream cakes are topped by an adorable cluster of tiny candy houses and will be sold throughout the Christmas season. Customers who buy more than one cake will receive a chocolate “bridge” to connect the various cake villages. The ice cream cake design is meant to remind Parisians of homecoming and spending time with their loved ones.
