This Christmas, Melbourne’s favourite gelataria, Piccolina, has launched two new gelato cakes and a special edition Christmas hamper.

Piccolina X LuxBite

Following the success of the festive ‘Ferrerolina’ in 2017, Piccolina Gelateria and LuxBite have once again joined forces to create not one, but two masterpieces just in time for Christmas. Channelling a snowy European Christmas, the first creation is dubbed the Snowball and the second is a re-imagined Italian favourite crowned Tira-Miss-You.

Whether as a treat for the family or a festive gift, the Snowball and Tira-Miss-You will provide the ultimate gelato indulgence.


Made from Piccolina’s 100 per cent natural gelato, the Snowball will feature a layered centre of coconut semifreddo with roasted almond and condensed milk: a self-saucing caramelised almond praline: and a salted puffed rice crunch and coconut gelato. All covered in coconut snow and finished with an exploding silver leaf chocolate Christmas party popper, it makes for the perfect celebratory dessert.
