    Surely is you want pyramid ice cubes you just freeze them upside down? that way the top/bottom is flat and you still get the point.

    EDIT… Wait I clicked the link and see what you mean…

    Surely that Skull belongs in Half Life, not watering down Scotch.

    How hard could it be?
    It might turn out to be easier to modify the amazon molds: cut the tips off and add the pointed part.

    Look for polycarbonate chocolate molds. They can double up as ice molds. I saw some that are (pointy) pyramid shaped. More expensive then cheap silicon molds though.

    • Come on, search results are easy. Amazon has a) 3-inch steel molds, b) chocolate molds less than an inch deep, or with ugly ripply textures, and c) the silicone molds with the “tops” chopped off.

        The ripply texture is supposed to be the tiers of stone blocks, I think.  They look alright to me.

        Also, since they’re simple pyramids, you don’t have to fill the big molds all the way up – they will make perfect ice pyramids of any size up to their maximum capacity.

        Incidentally, I went and measured the capacity of the ice cube tray in my freezer (look at this – you’ve driven me to science).  320 mL for 14 cubes = 23 mL / cube.  A pyramid mold 1 3/4 inches to a side and 7/8 inches high would give you about 22 mL pyramids

      That is incorrect. This article and video show exactly how to get clear ice. It’s actually really awesome.

    The pyramid tops are missing so you can add your own frozen all seeing eye.

    Oh, and the ice cube skull in the picture might not be technically ice either.

    i always thought that part of what a 3d printer is for , is to make custom ice tray molds !! easy peasy ?? not too dang hard ?? of course , i may well be confused !! hahrahrahrrh

    I followed a SWEET Instructable and made my own pig-gut gummi molds out of food-grade silicone for Christmas this year. Making pyramid molds would be pretty easy if you have an exemplar of the right size.

    I’m hanging out for a Menger sponge ice mold. Infinite surface area for rapid chilling and zero volume for minimum dilution.

    Sounds like a job for 3D printing:
