Gelato for Christmas 2022? Absolutely!

At Gelato & Co. we believe that our creamy hand-crafted gelato is deliciously versatile and can be enjoyed year-round. But in case you need a little convincing, we’ve Christmased it up for you!

We offer you two wonderful Christmas dessert ideas, our limited-edition gelato-filled panettone and our fancy gelato cakes, both easily customized to your family’s tastes. While vegan panettone isn’t a thing, gelato cakes made with our vegan sorbet options are a sweet treat the whole family can enjoy.

What is panettone?

Italian panettone is a rich, fruit-studded baked treat essential to any traditional Italian Christmas dinner. Imagine if a buttery, yeasty brioche married a light fruity sponge cake. The result would be a classic panettone, the must-have sweet pastry for the Christmas season.

How do we make our gelato-filled panettone?


Step one: We take the best quality Italian panettone and trim out the inside.

Step two: We fill it with your choice of up to two flavors of our wonderful gelato, made fresh daily in-house, with the finest ingredients we can source.

Step three is all you!

Present our gelato-filled panettone to your family and friends for an extra special Christmas dessert! It’s a stunning centerpiece for your holiday table.

Slice, serve and bask in the glow of gratitude and compliments. Gelato-filled panettone adds Italian flair and is the perfect sweet finish to your Christmas dinner menu.

In case you will purchase it, here’s a few tips to ensure its original quality:

  • Store the panettone in the freezer until 1 hour and 50 minutes prior cooking
  • Take the panettone out from the freezer and leave aside for 90 minutes
  • Pre-heat the oven to the highest temperature
  • Once the oven is ready, turn it off
  • Place the panettone on a baking tray and put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes
  • Take it out from the oven and place onto a serving plate
  • Cut it into equal portions 

Buon appetito!
