These delectable projects remind us of dairy artisan Peter Korth, who knows a little something about the subject of ice cream. His flair for transforming unique ingredients into unexpected, unforgettable flavor pairings earned him a spot on the Cooking Channel’s “Ice Cream Nation” special.

More recently, he launched PJK Creamery in his hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah, and it’s the culmination of his many travels and culinary dreams. He plans to soon open his own shop, and says that he envisions it “as a place where customers will re-experience the childhood thrill of enjoying a frozen treat on a hot summer day.”

Hey, that’s just how we feel about these ice-cream themed projects!

Who wants to play house when you can play ice-cream cart?

And no cart would be complete without ice-cream sandwiches… that will never melt or drip!

For those avoiding dairy, we offer these paper-crafted popsicles!
