- additional herbs or leaves and flowers between the sides of the
- bowls (see Fig. 2). Return bowls to freezer. Checking periodically
- on the bowls, continue to add and reposition flowers as the water
- freezes. Freeze overnight. To release the 1-quart bowl, remove
- freezer tape and ice cubes. Fill the 1-quart bowl with lukewarm
- water, then remove it from the ice bowl. To remove the 2-1/2-quart
- bowl, dip it in warm water and twist to loosen. Return the ice bowl
- to the freezer until you are ready to use it.

- water and flowers, substituting the 10-ounce custard cup for the
- 2-1/2-quart bowl and 6-ounce custard cup for the 1-quart bowl. Tape
- and freeze custard cups as directed for large bowl, adding flowers
- with wooden skewer as the ice forms. Freeze small
- bowl for 4-5 hours. Remove custard cups as directed for bowls and
- place small ice bowl in freezer until you are ready to use it.
- Yield: 3 bowls.
Crafterthoughts The sizes of bowls you make can easily be varied to suit your purposes. (Do keep in mind that you’ll want your servers to be thick enough, so pick large and small bowls for forming the ice versions that aren’t too close in size.) Tint the water with food coloring before you freeze it so the bowls match your decor…or the wedding party’s apparel…or your guest’s favorite hue.
Finished size: Large bowl is 6 inches in diameter x 3 inches tall. Small bowls are 3-1/2 inches in diameter x 1-3/4 inches tall.
