How to Make an Ice Bowl
photo by Southern Polar Bear
- Ready In:
- fresh edible flowers or citrus slices
- Place ice cubes over the bottom of a 2 1/2 or 3 quart bowl.
- Center a 1 1/2 or 1 quart bowl on top of the ice cubes.
- Weigh down the smaller bowl with more ice cubes or a can of frozen juice.
- Place freezer tape across both bowls to hold them in place.
- Using a wooden skewer, tuck herbs, flowers, or citrus (or a mix) between ice cubes.
- Pour cold water between bowls until the water is about 2in. from the bottom and freeze. Add another inch of water and freeze again, and repeat until water is about 1/2in. below the rim.
- Remove tape from sides of bowls, and ice cubes or juice from smaller bowl. Fill smaller bowl with warm, not hot water and let stand for 1-2 minutes.
- Carefully lift smaller bowl out of the larger bowl. Then dip the larger bowl into warm water and remove from the ice bowl.
- Immediately use ice bowl for shrimp, dips, or fresh fruits.

If you are looking for an elegant, creative way to serve ice cream, sherbet, or anything cold at a dinner party, this is the recipe that you are looking for! I had so much fun making them, but I had even more fun seeing everyone's faces when their dessert, placed in their very own ice bowl, was set in front of them.

My name is Alicia and I am a wife and mother. I am a SAHM and WAHM. I enjoy trying new recipes and can't wait to get my son into it as well. I really enjoy baking most of all, but I find lately I am getting more into cooking as well. And I dabble in food photography so I love to get pics of the dishes I prepare. I have found so many great recipes here and I just want to say Thank You! I try a new recipe almost every night. I have started submitting some I have around here and trying to create some of my own as well so if you try any of them I hope you will like them as much as I have enjoyed all of yours. I worked as a Barista for a couple of years and I love to mix drinks up and try all sorts of flavor combinations. I am thinking about trying to start up a cooking club in my area! I am really excited about it but I am waiting until my son is a bit older and we are in the process of selling our house so I wanna wait til that is done. It will be a meet once every couple weeks or once a month sort of thing and we will all get together and prepare new dishes planned around themes. I think it will be a lot of fun! I often bore my friends talking about food so much lol. I just love to talk about recipes and the different foods out there. Lately I have joined in on many zaar games and events and am having loads of fun! It keeps me rather busy just keeping up with the threads and making so many recipes lol. But I have found MANY wonderful recipes because of them. Here is a pic of my son Perrin I took the this January. <a href="http://s147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics3/?action=view¤t=_MG_0292-1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics3/_MG_0292-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> This past year I have started my photography business. It has been a lot of fun, and I hope to continue to grow with it all. I am an on location natural light photographer specializing in children, families, seniors, newborns, etc. It is such a great thing to be able to do something you love and still be able to be a SAHM which is something that is very important to me. And who doesn't love to be their own boss??? lol MY RATING SYSTEM: 5 stars ~ An incredibly delicious recipe and something I would make for company. Also the deciding factor from 4 to 5 stars is simplicity! If its super yummy AND simple to make it gets 5 stars by me! 4 stars ~ A great recipe and one I would make again. I may have made a couple small changes however to our tastes. 3 stars ~ A pretty good recipe, but not one that I would most likely make again only because I already have so many others to try, and our favorites to make again and again. Also probably needed to leave out a few too many things or add in a few of my own to get it to our tastes. 2 stars ~ Just not for us. We ate it, and tried it according to recipe directions, but the flavors or textures or some other aspect were just not something we enjoyed. 1 star ~ I wouldn't normally give a 1 star, but it would have to be a messed up recipe to get one. lol <a href="http://www.maploco.com/view.php?id=2284251"><img border=0 src="http://www.maploco.com/vmap/2284251.png" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="http://www.maploco.com/">Create your own visitor map!</a> <img src="http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/GIFS/zaargroupie.gif"> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have participated in the following... <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/Bevy/officialmemberofthebevtaggame.jpg"> February 08 <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/L%5B1%5D.F-stickJPEG.jpg"> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/derf16/food%20photography%20series/MuffinLovesticker.jpg"> March 08 <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <a href="http://s147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/?action=view¤t=macadamias.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/macadamias.jpg"></a> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Kaffee-sticker.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/PastastickerJPEG.jpg"> April 08 <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/GoldenWattle.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Flourpowersticker.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/SoupsandsaladSTICKER.jpg"> May 08 <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/DesertRose.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/PropitUpSTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/EZSTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3488/3314808827_fd1070a8f8_m.jpg">
