{Easter} Baking Soda Dough Decorations

7:00 am






Today I'm going to be showing you how to make a simple, Baking Soda dough to make easy  baked, Easter Decorations. 

Baking Soda Dough

1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Corn Flour (Corn Starch)
3/4 Cup Water
Baking Tray
Baking Paper
Egg Shaped Cookie Cutter (or super talented free hand artist!)
Skewer or Straw
Acrylic Paints
Clear Coat Sealer (Optional)

Alternative Recipe - Salt Dough

1 Cup Standard Flour
1/2 Cup Salt
1/2 Cut Water
**(Same instructions apply as below except, the saucepan is not needed, simply mix this in a bowl)

Steps:

  • In a saucepan over a medium heat, add all ingredients
  • Stir to combine all ingredients
  • Continue to stir until the mixture thickens and the dough sticks to itself, pulling away from the sides of the pot
  • Remove from the heat, place in a separate bowl and cover with a dampened cloth until cool enough to handle
  • In the meantime, pre-heat your oven to 120c (250f) and line a baking tray
  • Sprinkle your counter top with an extra dusting of corn flour and roll out your mixture into an even layer. The mixture doesn't rise in the oven so create the thickness that you require
  • Then, cut out your shapes (I used an old Cookie Cutter that I squished into a more egg like shape) to create eggs
  • Use a skewer, straw or similar to create a hole at the top, if you want to be able to hang these
  • Place onto your lined tray and bake in the oven at 120c for 2 hours or until baked through, turning half way through
  • Leave to cool before painting. This is the kids favourite part if you get them involved
  • A clear coat sealer can be used if you wish and then your set!
