Swensen's continues to create ice cream cakes that resemble other food items.

With Dragon Boat Festival (June 3) around the corner, their latest offering is none other than a bak zhang (Chinese rice dumpling) ice cream cake.

The ice cream cake looks like a typical bak zhang wrapped with bamboo leaves and secured with string.

According to Swensen's, it is topped with gold dust for "a touch of luxe".

Upon cutting into it, you will see the purple pulut hitam ice cream with black glutinous rice bits and a salted egg chocolate bonbon.

Each bak zhang ice cream cake is priced at S$8.

It is available for dine-in and takeaway (two pieces), while stocks last, at all Swensen's and Earle Swensen's outlets from May 23.
