For the second installment of the trilogy, we have Royal Copenhagen Ice Cream Cone Company, not to be confused with Copenhagen the capital of Denmark. The sole reason I was attracted to this ice cream establishment was that they make their cones fresh on site, and in plain view of the entire public, and as a food blogger I couldn't help myself, I had to take photos of the entire process, much to the amusement of the poor fellow making the cones.
On this particular night there was a VERY FAST young man on the waffle irons, so much so that 90% of the photos I took of him making the cones were of his blurry hands! He was a cone master! hehehehe. I'll let the photos do the talking, with very descriptive captions.
Step one - Open the hot waffle iron, no brainer....pretty simple
Step two - Pour waffle batter onto hot waffle iron
Step three - Remove cooked waffle and begin to roll into cone shape
Step four - Inspect your fine handy work, repeat step one - four
Now onto the Ice cream. Since they are located on a corner they have about 4 different freezer full of ice cream, making the choice of which flavour to get extremely difficult.
On this particular night I thought I would be adventurous and go for the Midnight cookie (bottom) with the maple macadamia (top), yep you read right....maple syrup and macadamia nuts. You can opt for toppings or opt out of toppings. Who am I to deny someone the pleasure of placing the crowing glory onto an ice cream, and who would have thought that ice cream could get even more unhealthy! The toppings were whipped cream and chocolate fudge sauce. There's supposed to be a pecan ontop too, but some how it was left off.
Ice cream with cream, ANNNND chocolate fudge...is that my Doctor calling??
I would love to say that the ice cream tasted awesome, but it didn't...it was horrible! But I'll leave it at that. I enjoyed the whole process from the humble beginnings of the cone to the extra toppings that I cant bring myself to saying a bad word. All I know is that I've been to Copenhagen, and I wont be going back. Copenhagen in Denmark is a different story.
