to make this bowl you need two bowls of different sizes, water, edible flowers, and a freezer. fill the larger bowl with a small amount of water, add the flowers and place the smaller bowl inside. if you want a thinner shell of ice, fill the smaller bowl with water or weights to push the bowl deeper down. place in the freezer and out comes this loverly little bowl. great for entertaining, you can use it to serve punch, sorbert, or anything else chilled.

For a birthday party one year, i did the same thing but with oodles of mint leaves. we served minty ice cream in the bowl- it was really cool. btw, violets and nasturtiums are edibble flowers. find out more about edible flowers in "the complete book of herbs." thats were i saw the bowl idea a few years ago. maybe they have a copy at your library - the book has a bunch of neat flower/herb crafts and recipes and gardening tips and so on...

gorgeous! I've also seen this idea used with candles, basically doing exactly the same but with a smaller container, the light shining through the ice looks gorgeous  Grin

very cool.  I now have a longing to go freeze water.  but I too wonder how long they stay frozen.  long enough to eat the ice cream?

I have not made this in a whiile, I used to make them so the side of the bowl was abt  3/4 inch thick. They lasted quite a while. Used htem to serve food in for a brunch, they lasted through the brunch. You do wantht make sure to put these on a bowl or platter with a lip, to allow room for melting.
