Start by combining about a teaspoon of your cornstarch with water in a medium mixing bowl. Stir until cornstarch is fully dissolved in water.
Add your frosting to the bowl and stir a couple times. Add the rest of your cornstarch little by little until the mixture clumps together to form a batter. As it thickens, it may be easier to mix with your hands to better incorporate the ingredients.
If the batter is still sticky, continue adding cornstarch a spoonful at a time until you have a soft, moldable ball of dough that does not stick to hands.
Now the fun part — add sprinkles, roll, and make your “cakes”!
- While this edible play dough is safe to taste, always supervise small children while they’re playing. I turned around for a minute and my daughter was cramming sprinkles into her mouth!
- If your edible play dough gets too thick or starts to crumble, simply add a little bit of water to soften.
- Since this dough is made with food ingredients, you’ll want to discard when you’re done playing for the day.
