These ices can be made in large or small moulds. The large moulds are lined with tin and have hinged lids and are made to represent various objects. The small ones are also lined with tin and are made in the form of flowers, fruits, birds, corn sheaves etc.; these are served mainly for ball suppers or for garnishes around a large ice.
Any variety of ice may be used to make them but as a rule the colour and flavour of the ice should match the shape of the mould.
The small moulds can be kept frozen until required or be demoulded in advance and kept frozen until required.
