I saw this recipe for cornflour salt dough on The Mad House blog and thought it looked fab, so we had a go. It took three attempts before we got them right. The first time, for some reason I totally misread the recipe. The second time they were perfect but I left them in the oven to cool and my husband turned the oven back on without checking inside and they burned! The third time they were pretty perfect!
2 cups salt
two thirds of a cup of water
2 cups cornflour
Half cup water
- Place the salt and 2/3 of a cup of water in a pan and bring to the boil.
- Add the cornflour and half cup of water, and mix until the mixture is the consistency you want.
- Make into shapes. We just used cookie cutters, and used a straw to make a hole at the top.
- Put in the oven on a low heat, we did about 70 degrees for 3 hours. Allow to cool.
- Decorate as you wish.
I loved these so much as they came out all sparkly! I have a big plate of undecorated ones for when people come round, the kids have really enjoyed it.
