Dessert Meets Design: Glace Artisan Ice Cream

The last few days, I've been surrounded by beautifully-designed desserts like this and this. Today, I'll share another example of pretty packaging. Kathleen of Twig & Thistle shared this well-branded ice cream shop with Black Eiffel readers during her guest blogging stint.

Glacé is a Kansas City-based artisanal ice cream shop. Creative partners Nathaniel Cooper and Brent Anderson put a signature touch on every aspect of the company's product to develop a unique identity. I adore the modern light fixture. The naked bulbs look like giant rain drops.
Ice cream cups feature the company logo, and custom stickers seal each bag. What a fun slogan: Glace, When Joy Freezes Over.
Look at these to-go containers. They aren't just your average plastic containers and glass jars. The labels even have fun sayings that are consistent with the company's overall image.
With flavors like Carmelized Pineapple, Goat Cheese with Honey, and Rosemary Caramel it's easy to see what makes this shop worthy of the "artisan" descriptor. I can only hope that the company expands and opens a shop near me. Mmmmm!

Take a look at their other great flavors and tell me, which one do you want to try?


In other news around the SYDT office:

I spent most of the weekend working on two great dessert projects that I'll share with you soon. The first is a collaboration with Maddy Hague of Inspired Bride and Nonpareil Magazine. Maddy's launching a second blog, Somewhere Splendid, very soon and we worked on a couple of yummy features.


The other project that kept me busily baking this weekend is a dessert table that we'll be shooting this week. Photog Emily Steffen and invite designer Bethany Hway and I will team up to bring you guys a few great DIY tips and ideas for the upcoming season. Stay tuned!
