ice-cream snow machine…

…for people of all ages
  [vote for,

apparently making snow is a complicated and expensive business and usually involves large amounts of snow; for ski slopes or film production whatever.

the ice-cream snow machine would be much cheaper, simpler and less technical but a lot more fun.

take a whole heap of ice-cream and link it up to some kind of blowing machine; perhaps an airless snow gun. these use simple nozzles like household spray bottles that turn the ice-cream mixture into a fine mist. obviously the party venue will have to be pretty cold but with a few gin & tonics…

       And where do we add the hot fudge sprinklers, not to mention the cherry cannons and peanut pumps. All required to create the ultimate sundae. Have a bun.

       If only I could give you 20 croissants instead of one...[po], you have successfully integrated two of the best stuff on earth (ice cream and gin) into one fun, kick-ass party. Anything that involves those two things and snow machines gets my vote.

       lets party!

       \\complicated and expesive\\ actually, not really. My brother used to work at a ski hill making snow, all it takes is a water hose, and a powerful air compressor to blast the crap out of the water, making snow.   

       However I like to eat ice cream more then snow, so bun+

       hey swimr, you need to freeze all that water - that takes energy. even I know that! oh perhaps you live in the antarctic...

       or Canada, meh close enough

       you are holding your globe upside down. how many girls have said *that* to you?

       ummmm, sticky....[po] I guess I am just OCD enough that the first thing I think of with blown ice cream is what a mess to clean up. I need a vacation.

       blimey, whatever that is - its not worth the cool sensual slimey feel of people partying...hey who ate my cone?   

       dent, darling - its my 6th... don't think much of yours btw...

       Obsessive compulsive disorder, I think *clean up* before I can have fun...   

       what of mine don't you think much of?   

       *update*.. Po says its my fella, she doesn't want to share. then I accuse her of being drunk then she deletes my accusation. then she passes out..*update*

       I'd blame the gin.

       I've been looking into making really soft snow, the kind made with real snow flakes, not chips of ice. It's tricky -- you'd be trying to condense liquid vapor, not freeze pieces of ice. (See link for the best explanation I found.) The outcome wouldn't be party / alcohol fodder but ridiculously refined restaurant specialty. There's room for investigating combinations with flavorful crystallization seeds, like vanilla on small specks of cinnamon dust.

       Leave it to [po] to figure out how to get a whole mountain sticky and sweet. +
