This is a lovely & simple dessert. I was first introduced to this dish many years ago at the Horseman’s Restaurant in Karen, Kenya. They are small cones filled with brandied whipped cream. To enhance the pairing with the Ode to Joy, I have added lightly caramelized apples as a light last-minute drizzle on top. I present them by filling a glass bowl with whole espresso beans, then standing these filled cones in the beans. As they sit for the first few minutes, the cone and cream on the bottom take on a flavor from the espresso that adds another dimension to this treat.
