What leads consumers to choose a hand-made gelato is based primarily on how attractive the gelato is when people see it in the gelato parlour display case. It is up to each and every gelato-maker to strive to make the hand-made gelato range original and a feast not only for customers’ taste buds but also for their eyes.
Whether it is in the gelato parlour display case, or in the bowls, cups and cones, various types of decorations can be used that make hand-made gelato even more inviting and tasty in the eyes of consumers.
For example, wafers of various shapes and sizes can be used for take-away cones or cups. In addition to helping the gelato craftsman to smooth out the gelato evenly in the container, wafers add a touch of extra sweetness to help the customer enjoy their gelato even more. Even biscuits shaped like Sicilian cannoli, like cigars or small gelato cones are perfect for decorating affogatos or sundaes consumed inside the gelato parlour itself.
To add a touch of vivacity and colour to the gelato parlour display case, you may wish to sprinkle the surface of the gelato contained in the trays with small slivers of almonds, candied peel, chocolate chips (white, milk or dark) and sugar granules, depending on the best combination with the flavours on offer.
Finally, colourful originality can also be created in dishes of gelato by using coloured sugar sprinkles, candies, fruit jelly or fresh fruits. And finally, a dash of whipped cream, a couple of coloured paper flags and a sweet cherry on the top of your gelato!
