Two of Melbourne's dessert maestros have teamed up to give your sweet tooth a very merry Christmas, unveiling a new line of festive gelato cakes that'll put the standard plum pudding to shame.

Piccolina Gelateria and patisserie LuxBite have joined forces for another of their Yuletide cake collaborations, this time inspired by a wintery,white European Christmas.

Crafted on Piccolina's famed all-natural gelato, and showing off some next-level pastry skills from LuxBite Head Chef Bernard Chu, the two indulgent new creations are sure to pack a punch at any festive celebration.

The Snowball boasts a layered core of coconut semifreddo, roasted almonds and condensed milk, covered in a caramelised almond praline, with coconut gelato and a salted puffed rice crunch. This one's finished with a generous dusting of coconut snow and an exploding chocolate Christmas party popper, decorated with silver leaf. And in excellent news for many, it's even gluten free.

Meanwhile, the Tira-Miss-You takes a classic Italian dessert to a whole new level, teaming coffee and chocolate chip gelato, Italian mascarpone, Kahlua-soaked savoiardi sponge and zabaglione gelato, with a covering of milk chocolate and dusting of cocoa to finish.

Cakes are designed to serve 16 people, clock in at $85 and available to purchase at all Piccolina stores: Collingwood, Hawthorn and St Kilda.
