Full Answer

Ice sculptures are typically associated with extravagant gatherings. Only the most lavish parties are expected to have such a display, and one would think that the time and effort needed to create elegant ice sculptures would require the services of a professional. However, it is easy to make ice sculptures at home with the help of ice molds and a chest freezer.

Purchased ice molds can be pricey. However, the convenience cannot be beat. Assemble the mold according to the supplied directions, fill with water, and leave in a chest freezer to solidify. Small molds typically harden in 24 hours, while medium-sized molds take 48 hours. Large molds are available as well, but require 72 hours in a walk-in freezer in order to solidify. You can enhance ice sculptures of any size with the simple addition of food coloring. Inserting flowers into a vase-shaped sculpture or placing appetizers on a sculpture shaped as a tray are ways to make homemade ice sculptures both elegant and functional.
