where do I find the recipe for tomato ice cups?

You can do two things. For a smaller cup, you can cut a tomato in half, scoop out the pulp and freeze it to make a cup. Or if you want to make a bigger fancier cup, you can follow this technique - http://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Cup/ . Just use seasoned tomato juice instead of water. You can use herbs to make it look fancier, or bigger bowls to change the size and shape according to your need. Enjoy!
