Ice-Cream in a Ziplock Bag in Se7en Steps!

January 15th, 2009 · 6 Comments

We have made ice-cream before on this blog and nearly all our birthday cakes are made from ice-cream, but what about this: Ice-cream in a ziplock bag? Believe it or not? This one sure has the WOW-Factor. I found it in Family Fun years ago and tried it with limited success (I didn’t use enough ice!) but then I watched this movie from instructables, and if you can get past the vegetable marketing, it gives a great demo.

Let’s Meet the Players:

You will need se7en things:

  • 1 large ziplock bag
  • 1 small ziplock bag
  • 1 tub of cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 or two tablespoons of castor sugar
  • Enough ice cubes to half full your large ziplock bag
  • 1 cup of granular salt.

Let’s play the Game:

  • Step 1: Mix together the cream, vanilla essence and castor sugar in a jug.

  • Step 7: Between five and ten minutes of the great shake you will have some delicious soft serve. Which didn’t last long enough for a glamorous picture.
