All you need is..
1 cup of plain flour
1/2 a cup of salt
1/2 a cup of warm water
You simply mix everything together. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour. If it's not sticking together enough then add a little more water. You need to dough to be handled without it sticking to your hands. Paige loved pouring the ingredients into the bowl and mixing it together.
When your decorations are ready make sure to poke a straw through the top to have a hole for the ribbon.
