Carved Cheese Bubbles

Take a block of cheese that is known to have air holes inside it (e.g. Swiss). Then, using X-ray scanning and precision cutting instruments, carefully carve a sphere of cheese all around the hole, that perfectly encompasses the hole.

You now have a Cheese Bubble. Make many of them, thin as you can without breaking the delicate surface, and use them as delicious decorations at banquets, parties, and other catered affairs.

       That's a "cheese geode", surely?   

       And I can think of easier ways of making them than x-ray scanning (injection molds, for example). Besides, filling them with things other than air would probably prove popular.

       like hollow cheese balls? ... I'm not sure I'm following this one ...

       Carved Cheese Bubbles: Sounds like something treatable.

       Or little cheese donuts or cheese bottles, carved at home. It could become a whole cottage (cheese) industry.

       [Eu], skip helium - go straight to hydrogen. Add a lighter and you can add a whole new excitement to fondue.

       Capturing the subtle breath of cheese - for that a croissant.

       Excellent, [phundug].

       Automatic plus for anything to do with cheese that doesn't involve chemical processing or the word "Squeezy".

       Gouda idea. Left over cheese (I imagine this would be quite a wasteful process), could be melted down, air-entrained to create new bubbles, then solidified to start all over again.

       Alright, who cut the cheese?
