For my BIL's rehearsal dinner they decided to serve blackberry/blueberry cobbler (insanely good) with ice cream for dessert. My MIL wanted to be able to keep the ice cream cold while it was served buffet style. So she came up with this genius idea, and I was SO impressed with how well it worked!
YES that is ice!
Here is what she did...put water in the first bowl > ice cream in the second bowl > put the second bowl in the first bowl > put it in the freezer.
Seriously, why didn't I think of this years ago! Especially when we celebrated Matthew's undergrad graduation with an ice cream bar?!?!
Here's the "ice bowl" from the first bowl after the dinner was over and we were cleaning up. Still completely solid.
Making a delicious apple pie this Thanksgiving? Serve some ice cream with it, and give this trick a try to keep the ice cream from melting!
