Orange Jack-o'-Lanterns with Sorbet Recipe Slice off top 1/4 of orange, and reserve for lid. Scoop out interior. Use templates or draw face freehand. Tape paper to orange, and cut out features with small, sharp knife. Pack with sorbet, and top it with "lid." Bend floral wire, and poke it in -- not through -- top of orange for tendrils. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet, and place in freezer until firm - 30 min.
