This is such a cool idea. This cookie cup was the creation of a Venezuelan designer named Enrique Luis Sardi which was made for Lavazza, the famous Italian coffee company. It’s so ingenius – he made it using a cookie for the outside and a special patented sugar icing on the inside. Dual purpose – it creates an insulator for the cookie and add sweetness to the coffee! I found this on Facebook the other day and had to repost it. I got a great comment from a fan named Rosemary who lives in Italy and says that they sell a version that is lined with chocolate!
And I say to that: YUM. I will definitely have to attempt to fail at making that and then just eat the pieces. Ha!
UPDATE: I am now in contact with the designer of this cup and I am told that it will be in production sometime soon. Don’t have much more information than that, but I will keep you posted as I learn more!
In the meantime, here is a different kind of edible cup that you may like!
