The only thing better than a fresh pint of ice cream, is one that’ll smile back at you. Artist/ice cream enthusiast Makoto Asano agrees, and creates Smiley Faces in Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream Cups.

Described by the artist as a “hobby” that makes “ice cream laugh,” Asano uses all components of the ice cream to bring these frozen faces to life.

Ice Cream Mosaics Are A Great Way To Decorate Potholes

As long as we’re still using streets, there will be tire-destroying potholes. Too bad, the means still used to fix large holes in the street results in unattractive patchworks.

Treats in the Streets is a fun project by Chicago-based mosaic artist, Jim Bachor. He pretties-up these unfortunate-looking road-fixes by installing ice cream-themed mosaics in them.

Most of the works can be found throughout Chicago. Check out Bachor’s Instagram to help keep track of the exact location of the ice cream mosaics. Just look out for potholes that don’t have ice cream in them.

Kate Middleton will soon unleash a new royal baby into the world. To help celebrate this historic event, British ice cream-maker The Licktators created Royal Baby Gaga.
