Hi sweet readers 

I hope you all are having a good day,

If you follow my other blog “Notes from Manuela” you have probably seen my post about Dubai and how I loved the caramel ice cream I ate at the parlour at Fortnum mason I Dubai.

  

I wanted to recreate the taste of that ice cream and I think I got about the same taste as I was served at the parlour at Fortnum mason.

I tried it yesterday as well, but it was way too sweet, but the second time around the taste was perfect.

This is not really an ice cream but more a semifreddo, but oh so delicious.

Hope you are going to love it.
