What You'll Get
Though any emotion can be read into the Mona Lisa’s mysterious smile, scientists have identified the glint in her eyes as simple lust for dairy products. Tantalize portraits with today’s Groupon to Marble Slab Creamery in Waxahachie. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of ice-cream cake.<p>
Since 1983, Marble Slab Creamery has used its cold-marble technique to create ice cream and frozen treats fresh in-store. Customers look on admiringly as expert marble mavens take fresh ice-cream flavors—including distinctive varieties such as peanut-butter banana, European-chocolate rum, and the pineapple-tinged piña colada—and blend in any of more than two dozen mix-in ingredients. Mix-in options include familiar candies and fresh fruits, which smoothly acclimate into each slab-spun creamy concoction and find solace in a spoon-ready cup, freshly baked hand-rolled waffle cone ($4.39 for a small with one mix-in; $6.78 for a large), or in the missing marble hands of Venus de Milo.
Those who prefer ice cream served cylindrically for easy passage through laundry chutes can slice into Marble Slab’s ice-cream cakes ($19.95+). To make sweet cream and strawberries, staff hand-blend berries with sweet-cream ice cream and layer the concoction atop fluffy yellow cake, and for vanilla Oreo, skilled spoons intermix sandwich cookies, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate cake. Marble Slab’s dairy artisans can also customize any cake by grafting photos of a birthday boy or girl, recent graduate, or past president in a gingerbread-man costume onto its edible surface.

About Marble Slab Creamery
The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original recipe, enticing customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with sundae bars in tow.
