Thank you for your “Magic Shell” advice. Pouring cold water on the surface was not nearly as effective as the ice cube, and the water was also a lot more messy. Once chilled, things hardened quickly. Thanks again, Reid. You rule.
I’m glad the ice worked out for you. I hadn’t thought of the mess pouring a cold liquid on the surface could make. I mean, assuming you’re trying to cover Rice-a-Roni with the “Magic Shell,” pouring cold water on it just wouldn’t work.
