<p>TO COLD</p>
so sneaky, luv it
Great Idea... Making them now.. It gets real Hot here in Paradise....lol.. Cheers..
Bloody Marry? Pretty sure you misspelled Mary.
maybe he tested his 'ible like all good iblers ;p
I imagine chopsticks would work just as well as straws. Then you don't have to bother with clay.
I thought the same.... In practice, this is not the case. The ice forms a tight bond... Perhaps if they had a polished and thermally conductive surface (stainless steel, for example) it could work... But that's a lot of infrastructure for a quick project. As suggested somewhere in the comments - soft fruit makes a good/edible alternative to clay. Either way, it's no bother.
I'm going to try using the microwave bacon cooker as a mold instead of having to purchase something special. My grandkids will love this!
Be carfull removing the finished straws those trays can become brittle if frozen.
Be careful on the choice of clay. Polyform clays can be toxic. Other than that, great idea! Jane
I would think bee's wax or paraffin used for sealing jelly jars would be a better choice.
Wonder if you could stuff the straws with some kind of food (fruit pulp?) that has an agreeable or no flavor? Apple flesh? Awesome instructable... enhancing normal activity, one straw at a time.
nice improvement of a fine idea. now, how do i make a bendy ice straw?
