Golden Glowing Soft Serve Ice Cream
Have you ever seen soft serve ice cream topped with gold leaf?
Our gold leaf soft serve ice cream is lavishly topped with a whole sheet of gold leaf. A deluxe treat, right?
We were the first one to come up with this idea of topping soft serve with a whole sheet of gold leaf!
Its history goes back to the spring of 2015. Thinking about the visitors who travel to Kanazawa, the city of gold leaf, we wanted to make them
smile and pleasantly surprise them. So we decided to launch Glowing Gold Leaf Soft Serve Ice Cream, a soft serve cone lavishly topped with
a whole sheet of gold leaf.
The special feature of this treat is a series of gestures: a gold leaf sheet is picked up with bamboo chopsticks, attached to the soft serve, and blown.
We strongly felt that thisspecial feature should be included because we wanted to make it possible for many people to see this craftsmanship called
haku-utsushi (or “gold leaf transferring”), a skillused in the last step of the gold leaf production process. Gold leaf is so thin, specifically 0.0001mm,
that it gets torn even by a little gust of air. Haku-utsushi is a craftsmanshipused for transferring such delicate gold leaf sheets by picking each sheet
up with bamboo chopsticks and spreading it out like ripples on the water by blowing on it. Bothbeautiful and astonishing, this view is breathtaking.
We decided to have our shop attendants attach the sheet of gold leaf to the soft serve right in front of our customers so that they can see this beau-
tiful glow of gold leaf up close.
