Last week I got to try out really huge ice cubes and this week I got to make ice balls with a silicone mold from the same company! The Bakerolla Ice Ball mold makes 4 tennis ball (or slightly bigger) sized ice balls.
This is an
easy to use soft silicone mold. Very flexible so you just twist and the
ice pops out. Easy to fill, but there is a little over spill. Don't
worry about it though, it won't get out into your freezer. It stays in
the top of the mold then just pops out when you take the mold apart.
Just take it apart over the sink so those spare pieces fall into the
sink and don't make a mess. The ice balls are huge and would be great in
a punch bowl, pitcher or tea or lemonade or a rocks glass with liquor.
First press both sides of the mold together firmly making sure the notches on the 2 ends match up.
Make sure both pieces of
the mold are pressed together completely before filling or you will
have a ring of ice around the middle of each sphere.
To fill the molds just hold a funnel (a normal kitchen funnel) above the hole and pour about 1/2 cup of water into each hole.
pour water across the top of the whole thing till all the molds are
full the turn it slightly to it's side to get rid of excess water. Then
'top off' each sphere hole using the funnel.
Place in the freezer for several hours until solid.
Once frozen, pull the molds apart and pop the ice spheres out of the bottom half.
If you get a ring of ice around each sphere you can chip it off with a butter knife.
You're done! You have 4 perfect spheres of solid ice. I put them into a bowl and put them back into the freezer then refill the molds. I added a bit of food coloring to the water before filling to get the red ice balls to use in Christmas punch. Easy peasy!
You can purchase a mold on Amazon right here.
These are really fun ice cubes to make and would be awesome to put in the punch bowl this holiday season. Don't you agree?
