Summer may be starting to wind down, but that doesn’t mean that ice cream season is over just yet. As any aficionado will tell you, soft serve is unequivocally the best ice cream, as it’s heavenly swirls are kept at just the right temperature to keep the dessert frozen, but flowing. If you’re the kind of person who thinks for some reason that soft serve is boring, these crazy offerings from around the world will prove that that’s far from the case.
Unicorn Soft Serve Pancakes, Malaysia
We’re not really sure why multicolored food has taken over, other than the part where it’s a little too photogenic, but these soft serve-topped, pastel pancakes certainly look like a one of a kind treat. With a mountainous cone made up of multi-colored ice cream, this is probably the best unicorn themed treat yet.
