Step 01

To make the rubber holder:

In a pot, mix the konjac, kappa and water evenly. Heat to 80°C, stirring constantly until it becomes a clear gel.

Transfer it to a tall narrow container (as tall as the dildo). Allow the temperature of the gel to cool to 50°C and then dip the dildo in it.

Remove the dildo and verify that there is a fine transparent layer on its surface. Wait a few seconds until the fine gel layer sets. Remove it carefully, as if it were a condom. Set aside on a clean cloth.

Step 02

To make the flower water:

Cut the flowers carefully just under the flower head. Dip them quickly in water. Allow to dry on a dry cloth. Vacuum seal the water and the flowers in a bag. Steep for 12 hours in the refrigerator so that the water is fully infused with the taste of the elderberry flowers.

Step 03

Presentation:

Fill the rubber holders with the flower water and add a fresh elderberry flower. Carefully tie a knot in the open end of each rubber, as if it were a water balloon.

 

Note: hold the rubber over the faces of the diners. Invite them to catch it and break it open with their mouths.
