Luck Cat Rolled Cream is amazing and need a full store. If you were “lucky” enough to head over to Saturn last Sunday, you already know why. If not, follow them on Facebook to track when they’ll open their next pop-up, because you don’t want to miss this!
Rolled cream seems like ice cream at first. But is it? Close enough. The rolling process happens right in front of you: ice cream batter (can anyone imagine a more beautiful phrase?) is poured on a cold plate and flash-frozen. Then, the sheet gets cut and rolled, before finally having toppings poured or set on it! The end result looks pretty incredible. I tried the strawberry rolled cream, and it tastes just as incredible.
Rolled cream differs from the regular ice creams I’ve tried in one really important way. It’s really, incredibly creamy. Cream fights over even the acidity of strawberries. And it’s great. I imagine this is because heavier, thicker ice cream is easier to shape than lighter ice cream (have you ever tried to sculpt a snowcone?) and using heavy whipping cream acts as a thickener.
So you can’t pick up Birmingham’s best ice cream in a store, but you can follow them on Facebook and Instagram. Their pop-up at Saturn was actually pay-what-you-want: any money you gave them went to DirectRelief.org’s Hurricaine Harvey response. I can’t wait to try this ice cream again.
