First get a cup like the one on the right then get a smaller cup then get foil that you bake with

Step 2: Put water in the cup

First go to the sink and put the water in the big cup fill it 1/3 or test it out by putting the smaller cup in the middle of the big cup. Be careful you'll have to line up the small cup exactly in the middle in the big cup.

Step 3: Put foil on the cup

Hold the small cup and with the other hand get the foil and put it on the cup. Cover it and see by the foil marks if it is lined up

Step 4: Put it in the freezer

Ten with the foil on top tightly bring it to the freezer. Check on it and when all of the parts are frozen bring it out. Then take the foil off. Take the smaller cup out carefully. Then you may notice that the bottom part is thin and may crack. To fix it go to the sink and put some watter til it fills 1/4 of the ice. Put it in the freezer again.

Step 5: Take the cup out and Enjoy!

After the bottom part is frozen go to the sink. Here comes the tricky part. Slowly while the water is on get the cup with the ice and put the water around it. This may take a few moments. After you have done it and think that you can take it out with your fingers and let the pressure go out and wala! You'll have your ice cup! Put some of your favorite drinks in and enjoy the heat!
Below is a picture of the finished product.

It's "Voila", It's french. I don't want to sound like a dick, but I hate spelling mistakes.
srhadaham RATM6 years ago
French is a language and should be capitalized. And I though you hated spelling errors.
RATM srhadaham6 years ago
Touché, however you are seven months late on the topic.
RATM RATM6 years ago
I also dislike grammatical errors, for example, starting a sentence with a conjunction. Everyone makes mistakes.
srhadaham RATM6 years ago
I was not late because, there was clearly no expiration date.
RATM srhadaham6 years ago
Good one, however the conversation on said topic had ended months ago. I see a conversation as being finished when both sides have made their points and cease to speak about the topic. I would say seven months between statements would indicate the conversation had come to a close. Nice try chief.
srhadaham RATM6 years ago
Clearly this statement is an opinion. And in my opinion an online conversation does not close. Everyone is entitled to their opinion whether they are right or wrong and that is mine.
also this is getting ridiculous, go ahead and make you reply but i will not be making another comment on this topic. : )
RATM srhadaham6 years ago
Thank you, finally it's over. I completely respect your opinion, however you have to understand why I would be slightly annoyed that we were talking about a topic I thought to be dead a while ago.

this would be great for a snow fort. you could have an ice fort with an ice cabinet with ice cups inside!
That's awesome, Nice work!!

They should use those in the Ice Hotel, that hotel they build in Sweden every year!

there is an ice hotel in sweden? I thought you were talking about the one in quebec.
they do
Oh, hehe. Yeah, I never actually got to finish one of their documentaries on the Discovery Channel... I really have to watch all of next year's!

You can buy shot glass mold to do the exact same thing, just easier
andrewcoppell (author)  hedgiehog7 years ago
Yes but pretty expensive, 9.99 & Shipping............
Yes, but see how this is much bigger than a shot glass? With this method you can make a whole ice bucket 8D!

why do you need to cover with foil?
andrewcoppell (author)  JellyWoo7 years ago
First to line up the smaller cup in the middle, second to prevent the cup from floating up from the water pressure.

I tried this with my morning coffee and it didnt work! WTF!!!!! Jk. Thats cool. You could even flavor the cup so you can "eat" it later! +

Great minds? Ich bin heiß!
waffles are good 4 breakfast
Now I'm going to make a fire cup! oh wait...
Ben.land1018 years ago
these are really awsome till they melt then you have a puddle of your favorite drink!!
bhunter7368 years ago
I like it. Even if you didnt remove the outer cup and just used the ice cup inside to keep your drink super cool without ice floating up to your teeth this is pretty novel! I will be trying it soon, the weather is heating up around here.
