Shaved Ice Ice Baby opened its doors in January 2016, serving deliciously flavored shaved snow ice. Light, fluffy, creamy, and refreshing, this unique, low-calorie dessert is delicious. We recently sat down with Shaved Ice Ice Baby Owner, Somaly, to find out more about her business.
Question & Answer1. Tell me a little bit about your business? What makes it unique?
Shaved ice ice Baby is a frozen dessert shop serving delicious & refreshing flavored shaved snow ice. Imagine having balls of snowflakes that is very light, airy, yet creamy, like ice cream, but better! The fluffy & velvety texture simply melts in your mouth. It's a frozen dessert delight that tastes like frozen cotton candy or finely shaved ice cream. There are 2 things that makes this dessert very unique: one is the smooth & refined texture of the snow ice and two is the visual fine art creation the dessert display. The all natural infused-block flavors are bold and tasty. Pair this with a soft, silky & smooth-like texture simply creates an OMG experience with every bite taken, thus, making this frozen treat a must try.
2. How did you get involved in your industry?
Shaved ice is one of the oldest, simplest form of cold dessert known to mankind, and pretty basic and popular in Asia. With the ever changing technology, shaved ice has evolved. I encountered shaved snow ice back in 2012 on my month long vacation in Asia. This style of shaved snow ice is modeled after the Taiwanese. When we sold our other business, we decided that frozen dessert was the next venture for us. With a few changes to an aged-old recipe and also adding the American twist to ensure that the flavors will satisfy different taste palates, Shaved ice ice Baby was born.
3. How did you start the business?
We love food, desserts, treats, you name it. We are foodies!! After having shaved snow in Asia, it was a constant craving back home in CA. There were limited locations in LA and OC, and none in south orange county. However we managed to find a few cafes that served this yummy treat. Every time we enjoyed this dessert our love & passion for it grew. So we decided that it would be awesome to introduce a frozen dessert that is not only different & new but simply delicious to this area.
4. Why did you choose to locate in Lake Forest?
We chose Lake Forest because the city is very business friendly. The people are very nice. And we live in the area so it was something that made sense to us.
