Rose Ice Cubes

Thursday, 8 October 2009

I just love cute little decorative touches that you can add to any occasion.
This DIY project created by Jonathan Style is a stunning way to decorate your bar at a cocktail party, ladies day, baby shower, birthday, or even your wedding day!

You can even try lots of different colour roses to create more excitement.

What you’ll need: (per ice tray)

12 spray roses (the small ones) –

Tip: spray roses can be pricey if you’re making many ice cubes. Consider using small silk flowers from Mr. Price Home

12 twist ties

2 wooden skewers

1 ice tray
Floral tape

Step 1: To keep the roses submerged in the ice trays, we have to build a framework that will weigh them down. Cut the spray roses, leaving about 2 inches of stem, and use twist ties to attach the stems to the skewers.

Step 2: Place the roses, which are attached to the skewers, upside down in their individual ice compartments of the tray.

Step 3: Tape down the skewers at the ends of the ice tray to keep everything from floating when you add water. Your ice tray should look like the one in the photo.

Step 4: Add water to the ice tray and freeze overnight.

Is it edible?

Most roses are indeed edible. However, many growers use pesticides on the roses, so I would avoid putting these ice cubes in drinks unless you’re sure there were no chemicals used. Just use the ice to cool drinks.

PS. Uses different colours with simple clear drinks, the roses and ice cubes should be the heroes here!
