Strawberry sorbet layered white cake finished with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. We soaked the strawberries in lemon and sugar overnight to enhance the flavor. This cake was a hit at the baby shower.
The perfect little girl cake!

To ensure the highest quality, we make our caramel on site. We like to crunch pecans and add them to the caramel inside the truffle. Finally, we add a whole pecan on top for a touch of elegance.

This was the comment an excited American father shouted as he and his two young kids exited the Vatican in Rome. For a moment, I felt the father was more excited about enjoying the exceptional Italian desert than the kids, but then the kids started cheering and chanting “It’s Gelato Time”. Fortunately, my family was able to experience this event firsthand since we were leaving the Vatican walking behind the chanting family. My husband, my son and I looked at each other and started to laugh with joy. My 2 year-old daughter had no idea why we were laughing, but that did not stop her from laughing during this festive moment. This was the moment I needed to finalize my decision to start Dreamy Gelato & Chocolates.
My favorite gelateria in Folkestone, England
To ensure we made the best gelato and chocolate, we traveled across Europe to conduct research. We traveled from Brussels to Ireland, Italy to Germany, and Amsterdam to France. We trained in Italy to make gelato and England to make chocolates.
Gelato training in Southern Italy
As part of our procurement, we import some of our ingredients like Madagascan vanilla beans, Sicilian pistachios, French purees and Swiss chocolate. However, we source our milk and other produce from local farmers. My visit to Ireland inspired our hot chocolates which is made with molten chocolate and homemade whipped cream. All of our products are handmade on site daily.
After three months open, I continue to enjoy hearing patrons young and old chanting “It’s Gelato Time” as they enter my shop.
