CONNIE's notes for this recipe:
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.

Directions

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)

Thanks for posting this Connie! :~) I use corn starch with my fondant recipe and so much depends on the humidity of the area/day. If it's just a little tacky, I would try the corn starch. It may be a while before I get to try this one with the holidays upon us now, but I will certainly be saving it!! ♥

Corn starch is an excellent idea - Thanks.
