I’m posting this quaint little place both in two of my categories, both in College Park and in local information. In College Park, we as a community support our small local businesses any way we can. We even have a “Small Business Saturday” dedicated to it.

Owner Vanessa Falcone opened her shop around one month ago. It’s located right on Edgewater Drive, in a small strip plaza across from the Publix. So let’s talk about what this shop has to offer. You can have your choice of a variety of gelatos, or how about some freshly made pasta. Next, to the gelato selection, there is an antipasto bar, with some wonderful choices of olives and other goodies.

They also have an espresso machine, so if you would like to have a cup of Italian coffee, it’s ready and waiting for you while you wait for your pasta. This store also offers you an eclectic array of “readily available” Italian specialty items.

Gelato Birthday Cake Shake

 

Image

Who doesn’t love a great milkshake, and I don’t mean the healthy smoothie version. I just mean your everyday milkshake, but with a twist. I was watching “The Chew” last week and they came up with a birthday cake shake. Crazy right?  I grabbed the blender and went to work on making my Gelato Birthday Cake Shake.

Top the milkshake with whipped cream, or even pipe on your favorite cake frosting then add the sprinkles. Yum!… All good things in moderation. The little girl in me couldn’t stop smiling!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Equipment: Blender

Ingredients:
1 pint of Vanilla Bean Gelato
1/2 cup of whole milk, cold
1/4 cup of Ducan Hines French Vanilla cake mix
Colored sprinkles for garnish

Directions:
In a blender add the gelato, milk, and cake mix, blend until smooth and thick. Top with a few colored sprinkles.
Note: You can adjust the thickness of your milkshake by adding more milk.

You can get crazy with the idea of birthday cake milkshakes. I’m keeping my Gelato Birthday Cake Shake pretty simple, but don’t let that stop you. Let your imagination run wild. Top the shake with whipped cream, or even pipe on your favorite cake frosting then add the sprinkles. Yum!… All good things in moderation.
