These are so fun to make and you can do it with minimum effort. High drama, great for dinner party conversation and all for the cost of water and a few supplies!


  • 2 freezer-proof glass or aluminum bowls of the same shape, one about 2 inches smaller than the other.
  • Water
  • Embellishments (whatever you want to freeze in the bowl, gold coins, edible flowers, foil confetti, herbs, slices of fruit, etc.)
  • Scotch tape


  1. Pour 1 inch of water into the larger bowl.  Place the bowl in the freezer, making sure it is standing perfectly flat.  When the water has frozen remove the bowl from the freezer.  Place the smaller bowl inside the larger one resting on the ice.  Tape the bowls together using Scotch tape to make sure they don’t shift.  Pour water into the gap between the two bowls.  Have it come halfway up the side.
  2. Stick the embellishment of your choice into the water all the way around the perimeter of the bowl. Use a pencil or skewer to push them down if necessary.  Place the bowls in the freezer again, until the water has frozen.  Remove the bowls and add another layer of water so it reaches the top.  Freeze again.
  3. When the ice bowl is frozen solid, remove the bowls from the freezer.  Remove the tape.  Try to separate the bowls.  If necessary, run under tepid water just until the bowls release.  Place the ice bowl back into the freezer until needed.
  4. Serve the bowl in a chilled glass bowl to catch drips.

Now fill with your favorite ice cream and serve!

Remember... You can do it!
