  • You probably could but I’ve always just made to serve, the gelato comes out of the food processor at the right temp and consistency. The whole thing can but done in a couple of minutes.

    • I’d serve straight away, if you needed to make ahead, I’d make the cakes and then freeze them whole. Because it doesn’t have the sugar content of custard made gelato it will freeze more like ice than icecream. It’s really meant to be an instant dessert,
