This month on MarriedinMilwaukee.com we are featuring delicious desserts for your wedding. From gelato, to caramels, to cheesecake and more, stay tuned for a scrumptious journey through Milwaukee’s best wedding dessert options.
Looking for a unique, delicious sweet treat to offer your guests? Look no further than gelato. While there are a couple gelato options in Milwaukee, let me introduce you to one of the most unique and authentic gelato shops in town – La Coppa Gelato.
Started by Arthur Sawall, La Coppa Gelato launched earlier this year and is quickly gaining a following. Arthur saw an unfulfilled niche in the U.S. market of traditional authentic gelato made in small batches using ingredients imported from Italy.
From the moment I began chatting with Arthur, his excitement at describing the creativity and expertise that goes into creating authentic gelato was infectious. Not only are the ingredients imported, he has even brought in 3rd generation Italian artisan gelato makers to personally develop and execute the technique, flavors and design of the desserts.
La Coppa’s Difference is in the Design
While a scoopable gelato bar is an option for La Coppa, their specialty and differentiating factor is really in their design. Imagine gelato “cake” pops dipped in European chocolate, meticulously designed gelato cakes, layers of gelato served in individual glasses, even alcoholic gelato or sorbet drinks are an option. Check out these images for the visual. Yum!
Events are La Coppa’s Specialty
While there is some additional logistics when having a frozen treat at your wedding, La Coppa will work with your caterer and/or venue to figure it all out. La Coppa specializes in special events and is available for tastings at their Brookfield location on Capitol and Calhoun.
La Coppa is slated to open their first retail store in the Bayshore Town Center by the end of July so be sure to check them out! Go to their website for more info on having gelato at your wedding.
