Food Trick- Colored Pineapple Rings/Flower Ice Cubes


I cannot find the original pin where I first saw these ideas to make colored pineapple rings and ice cube "flowers" using the bottom of a soda bottle. I thought they were cute ideas for the little tea party a friend and I were hosting for a friend's birthday. 

The pineapple slices turned out pretty good, but once frozen, they were pretty brittle and would break. It was kind of a nice touch for the punch. next time I'll use a different recipe for punch that is easier to see through so the rings can be seen better.










These "flowers" didn't really work out very well, and they kind of crumbled when I tried to put them in the punch. I don't think I'll try them again. 







The punch wasn't beautiful to look at, but it tasted really good!

  2. Haha, well, I'm glad it tasted good! See, this is why I want to see people put Pinterest ideas to the test. Imagine if I had started this project a couple hours before a big party, with an inflated idea of how glamorous the end result would be. . .

    1. Haha! Exactly! Let me mess everything up so you know what to avoid! :-) I really like searching for Pinterest Fail pictures and having a good laugh at the results of some of the projects!
