The Moo Gelato's Unicorn and Mermaid-Inspired Ice Cream Cones Are Ridiculously Insta-Worthy

Maybe it's just us, but we happen to think gelato tastes better when it's utterly adorable.

The very best desserts are usually just as Instagammable as they are tasty, which is why we're so in love with the incredible gelato creations from The Moo Gelato in Huntington Beach, California. They may not be the originators of mermaid and unicorn-inspired treats, but their desserts are certainly the cutest. We reached out to founder Stefanie Bui to find out how her incredible treats came to be.

The Inspiration

Stefanie Bui: I grew up fond of sweets, unicorns and mermaids, and I created The Moo Gelato from the perspective of a dessert-lover.

Making It Happen

SF: I knew instantly that owning my own dessert shop was a dream of mine and I had to achieve it. I took the necessary steps of learning how to make gelato, testing new flavors, and decorating the sweets with the craziest mythical creations. We're always thinking of new fun and crazy things to add to our dessert shop. From gelato flavors to bubble wrap waffles, the ideas are endless and we're always open to finding new ones.

 

Most Instagrammable Dessert

SG: Our prettiest dessert is our famous unicorn vanilla gelato in a bubble wrap cone, topped with unicorn horns and ears!

Tastiest Dessert

SF: All our flavors are delicious and I can't help but be biased—but if I had to select a customer favorite, it would have to be our Cookie Monster Milkshake. By grabbing the scoops of gelato and placing them in the blender with our other ingredients, we turn gelato scoops into milkshakes in mason jars where guests can still add toppings of their choice.
