Taste, shape, and texture. I must have done something terribly wrong because they wouldn't hold there shape and tasted awful. They were a pain to make too. I was very disappointed. I would love to know what I did wrong though.
The only thing that I am concerned about with using the ice cube trays is whether or not the eyeballs will come out of them unharmed. I am afraid it might be a little difficult to get them out? What do you all think?
I think the spray would be the way to go. The cling wrap would probably give the eyes a wrinkly (sp?) look. I might try half the batch with the melon baller and the other half in the trays if I get any trays, that is.
Maybe this time around they won't be such a disaster for me. I am looking forward to seeing everyone elses results!
Dark Star I was also thinking of maybe trying a different recipe for the eyeballs. What about Alton Brown's Panna Cotta recipe but mold them in the round ice cube trays or using the melon baller? Any thoughts?
