Another media which also look for any summer related issue is “TK Teen”, a TV program supported by TK Park (Thailand Knowledge Park อุทยานการเรียนรู้) on channel 11 or currently renamed as “NBT TV”

As it’s summer time so I was asked to make a summer ice cream for the show. Any of you might know I have made Sunbath ice cream for Bistro magazine last summer. For this summer, I have to come up with something different… new… but still give a good impact like that one. It needs to be something easy to make by anything surround us, short time to prepare, that’s a major requirement from the staff of TK Teen.

I came up with an idea of making something new from an existing ice cream in market so everyone can make it themselves without any ice cream machine.

So let’s do some famous activity during the summer time… how about making a sand castle but ice cream one?!?

Sand Castle ice cream

And here are the tools to create our castle! One tub of ice cream, a cup of ice cream (should be the same flavor as the tub one and should be vanilla, chocolate or any brown color ice cream for realistic look.), Fork and any decoration you may like.


I imitate the ice cream equipments to the sand castle tools. For example, if you turn a cup of ice cream upside down, you will notice that it’s not much different from the sand castle bucket, especially the bottom part which really looks similar to the zig zag top of the castle wall. Use it as a mold to build the castle and place it on the ice cream tub. Use the spoon/fork to create the moat and decorate it with some rocks, in this case, colorful chocolate. Place a little spoon on the top as a flag of the castle…. and here we are… tahhh…dahhh…

April is the beginning of Summer time in Thailand although I think actually there is just only one season “Summer” all the year round in this hot country…. oh perhaps another one…. “Sale season” is also all the year round in Thailand as well, especially in Bangkok.

Anyway let’s say April supposes to be summer and it’s time for bikini and sun tan!!!

Hahaa.. if you are thinking you’re gonna see me wearing bikini on the cover of Bistro magazine, you’re totally wrong!

I was assigned to create a summer ice cream collection for this ice cream issue. I was inspired by tan skin, sun bath, bikini, sea, swimming pool, inflatable boat and so on. Here are some result of my ideas and experiments.

“Oven”bath tulie (cookies which usually serve with an ice cream.)


Honey tan skin, honey sunbath ice cream.

Please note that all of the menus in this collection is to visualize the idea of summer by using food and ice cream as a material. I apologize if it’s not intend to wet the appetite.
