Beachside selfies, trips to the farmers market, rooftop lounging — there are seemingly countless ways to celebrate summer, but perhaps chief among them is outdoor dining. On this morning's all-new episode of The Kitchen, the cast shared their top best recipes, tips and entertaining know-how to help you host the ultimate Summer Cookout. After his fellow co-hosts showed off how-tos for nautical napkin holders and seashell salt and pepper bowls, Jeff Mauro introduced Edible Sand Castles, made not with sand from the shore but with brightly colored gelatin instead. And the results were nothing short of impressive.

Take a peek at the photo above from the episode. With his orange-flavored "castle" displayed in front of him, Jeff couldn't help but feel mighty proud of the work he did to make this too-cute edible decor. Check out his tips for re-creating the "castle" at home, and find out how to make more easy culinary crafts in time for your next alfresco bash. Then, we want to hear from you, fans. Caption this photo of the co-hosts (with tastefully appropriate language, please) in the comments below.

Tune in to The Kitchen on Saturdays at 11a|10c.
