TREND REPORT: Cookie Coffee Cups

While enjoying my morning cup of coffee and skimming Perez Hilton (I know, I know, but it is my shameless guilty pleasure) I stumbled upon a new culinary masterpiece, the cookie cup!
I immediately thought two things: 
1. My monogrammed ceramic coffee mug has now lost all appeal 
2. This could be the next big things at weddings!

Here is the explanation from the coffee company Lavazza

First you drink your coffee and then you eat… the cup! Cookie Cup is the edible cup designed by Enrique Luis Sardi together with the team at the Lavazza Training Centre and Cataldo Parisi, head chef of the confectioner’s kitchen at Number 10 San Tommaso. 
Cookie Cup is an example of the results achieved from research into food design: it’s not just about coffee, but also the container — because once you have enjoyed the dark beverage you can also eat the cup. The cup is made of pastry covered with a special icing sugar, which works as an insulator, and makes the cup waterproof hence allowing you to use the cup and then appreciate its taste, so to eat and drink coffee along with a biscuit at the same time.

Doesn't that look so delicious?!?  I can just see espressos, coffee, hot chocolate and more being served in these at weddings this Fall!
