- Playdough makes the perfect cake again and again :o) Great
for any time of the year - not just for April Fools treats.
3 cups of boiling water
1 tablespoon of Cream of Tartar
- 1 cup of table salt
4 tablespoons of cooking oil
- 4 cups of flour
Mix everthing, except the flour, together in a large
bowl. Add the flour slowly, stirring until the mixture is no
longer sticky. You may need more flour
Once it is cool it is ready to use.
Store it in an airtight container and if it hardens a little
soften it with a little water.
This makes a decent amount of dough. You
might like to put the food colouring in last and divide the
mixture into 2 or three colours. Just massage the food
colouring in with your hands.
Protect the table
and floor with old newspaper and a drop cloth and use kitchen
utensils(spoons, pastry cutters, muffin trays etc) to make
playdough food items.
