What you need is two plastic bowls one smaller than t'uther, some water, a crepe bandage and a deep freeze. Oh and a towel is always handy, splishy splashy.
First put some water in the larger bowl.
Second push the smaller bowl into the larger bowl until the water comes up the sides, then secure with crepe bandage or the like (I raided a bandage from my first aid kit). You should then have something that looks like this.
Third put the whole lot in the freezer, to make more space in my freezer I removed one of the freezer drawers. Once it is well and truly frozen remove from freezer and you will then have something that looks like this.
Fourth leave it to melt a wee bit so that the inner bowl is easy to remove and the ice can be turned out of the larger bowl. Taa da!
Enter the stunt strawberries.
These bowls are great for serving fruit, salads, punch (providing its super cool before going in), ice cream etc. Or you can just pop some candles in. Ice cream brought to the table in one of these melts much more slowly, soft fruits like raspberries don't go squishy so quickly in the heat, salad stays crisp longer. The bowl is surprisingly resistant to melting especially when you make the ice thicker. If you want the ice to be super clear boil the water that you are going to freeze, this removes some of the air from the water.Best of all there is one last thing to be washed up at the end of the night. I'm toying with the idea of adding food colouring and having different coloured bowls. Or maybe I will freeze some edible flowers in. Lots of possibilities.
If you have a go I'd love to see what you come up with.
