Here's the thing about DIY's: you never know if they're going to work. Seeing that the Oscars are this weekend, I had dreamed up an idea to use sugar stars in ice cubes for a glammy cocktail. I bought supplies & had everything I needed. What I realized was that the water quickly dissolved the sugar stars I purchased, and there was no beating around the bush that this cocktail was not going to happen.
I was sad.
I wasn't going to let these cute straws go to waste nor my new ice cube trays that I'll never use again. I filled 'em up with water and began sprinkling *inedible* plastic stars into each cube.
While you cannot consume these stars, they make for a fun presentation added to an ice bucket with bottles of champagne! They're very beautiful and extra fun. I only wish you could drink them, too. I'd love to see anybody tackle this and figure out how to make it work!! I'm sad they're inedible but can find other ways to use these pretty things!
