Star Ice Lantern (Large)
Embrace the magic of fire and ice.
Our heavy-duty mold makes an endless number of star-shaped lanterns. The hollow cavity of this mold allows you to place a candle inside after making the frozen lantern. Warm candlelight glowing through the icy facets creates an unforgettable, mood-setting centerpiece.
When candlelit Ice Lanterns are placed outdoors near entries and walkways, arriving guests receive a spectacular welcome.
In summertime, use them to serve chilled fruit or ice cream.
To use, fill with water and decorative objects (see list below) and freeze for 12-24 hours. When the water is frozen, remove the Ice Lantern from the mold and place a tea light in the center cavity. The Ice Lantern can be used indoors or outside. The star shape melts evenly, so your Ice Lantern lasts for hours.
We have the Star Ice Lantern Mold available in two sizes:

After the water is frozen completely in the mold, remove the mold from the freezer (or bring it indoors) and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 to 15 minutes. After this time, pour WARM water into the center of the mold and wait for about 5 minutes. Make sure to use warm water, as hot water tends to shatter and crack the ice. Tip the mold over and the ice block should easily slide out of the mold. We have found that the ice lantern lasts about 6 hours at room temperature.
Another tip we have discovered to successful ice blocks, is to make sure the water is completely frozen before trying to remove the ice block. We like to let the mold sit for 24 hours in the freezer to ensure that it has frozen through completely.
