Instructions and Tips

Reusable ice sculpture and gelatin dessert molds are made of durable, high-impact styrene, and FDA-approved material.

Ice Sculpture Instructions

  • Wash mold thoroughly before using.
  • Position mold in freezer using the 4 foam corner supports enclosed in mold.
  • Fill mold about 90% full or about ½ inch from the top with liquid (water expands). Mold holds approximately 3-4 quarts of liquid.
  • Freeze for at least 48 hours.
  • To remove sculpture, allow mold to sit out at room temperature for a few minutes. Do NOT dip mold in water as ice will crack.

Ice Sculpture Tips

  • For a clearer ice sculpture, boil water for at least 5 minutes. Allow water to sit overnight, or until cool, before freezing.
  • When displaying your ice sculpture, position the sculpture in a container or dish that will catch the melting ice, so it does not ruin your table. It is also recommended to place the ice sculpture on a block of ice. It adds stability and longer life to your ice sculpture.
  • To make your own block of ice, use a pie pan or other freezer container. For party occasions, freeze objects such as pinecones, plastic spiders, Easter eggs, or other toys into the ice block.
  • Use a turkey baster to get rid of excess water under the ice sculpture as time goes on.
  • See our usage ideas for fun ways to make your ice sculpture more interesting.

Gelatin Instructions

  • Wash mold thoroughly before using.
  • Spray mold lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Prepare gelatin according to package directions, but use ¼-½ cup less water than specified for a firmer consistency.
  • Position mold in the refrigerator using foam corner supports.
  • Pour in gelatin. Mold holds approximately 4 large gelatin packages.
  • Refrigerate until firm.
  • To remove gelatin from mold, dip mold in hot water for 3 to 4 minutes – place serving dish on top of mold and carefully turn over.
  • For a variation, add cut up fruit or shredded carrots to gelatin before placing in mold.

Ice Cream Instructions

  • Wash mold thoroughly before using.
  • Melt approximately 1 – 1 ½ gallons of ice cream.
  • Pour ice cream into mold. Flatten out ice cream until all parts of mold are filled and top is flat. (To make an ice cream cake, layer crushed graham crackers or crushed Oreo™ cookies on top.)
  • Cover loosely with foil or saran wrap and put mold in freezer until ice cream is refrozen.
  • To remove from mold, dip bottom of mold in hot water for about 1 minute. Place serving dish on top of mold and turn over to serve.
  • If desired, top ice cream with decorative frosting or small candies.
