CONNIE's Story

This is a recipe that I found online searching for a recipe that uses everyday ingredients to make a clay for making figures to decorate a cake. I have not tested it yet, but will soon - I will post my results then. If you try it first, please let me know how it worked for you. I noticed in the directions about it being sticky so I am guessing more powered sugar could help along with a bit of refrigeration.

Ingredients

1 lb
confectioners sugar
1/3 c
light corn syrup
1/3 c
butter

1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
flavoring extract (vanilla or your choice)
OPTIONAL
several different paste or gel food colors

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients except any coloring.
2
Determine how many different colors you want and divide the clay into small bowls; one for each color and one for white.
3
Mix the individual colors in each bowl to the color intensity that you want.
4
Dough gets stickier as you work with it, but hardens a bit when refrigerated. (See my notes above)
5
Use the clay to make decorations for your baked items.
6
(NOTE: The article I read when I found this recipe stated that the Author had made comic figures, and a playground with landscape. Please let me know how this worked if you try this before I do)
