This was one amazing experience. First, my daughter (turned 9) had her birthday party at Pikes Peak Ice Cream & Gelato. This was not any party....they offer a birthday party called 'Ice Cream Maker for a Day' whereby my daughter and hte birthday party came back into the kitchen and measured and mixed the gelato ingredients and put the ingredients into the gelato machine. 20 minutes later, my daughter and her friends are eating the gelato that they just made! It was an incredible experience. Secondly, the owners are incredibly nice. You would think that you just arrived home when you walk into their shop. Everyone that works there is pleasant and treats you like family. Their gelato is BETTER than the gelato we devoured in Rome and Florence last summer. In an age of over-priced ice cream stores (Coldstone) and mediocre-quality ice cream (Baskin Robbins), Pikes Peak Ice Cream is a breath of fresh air. A friend just told me that their daughter has selected Pikes Peak Ice Cream & Gelato to cater her wedding in July. They will be providing their Italian gelato in lieu of a wedding cake. That is a very cool idea!
