  7. About frozen souffles: These ices derive their name from the fact that they are molded in souffle dishes. The capacity of the dish is increased by attaching a paper collar to it, so that when the collar is removed, the frozen mixture extends above the edge of the dish, like a hot souffle. To make a paper collar for a souffle dish, cut a piece of parchment paper about 1/3 as long as the circumference of the dish and about 1 1/2 times as tall. Wrap around the dish and secure with a rubber band, just below the rim of the dish. The top is usually dusted with cocoa powder to imitate the brown crust of a hot souffle.
