Homemade playdough {pretend} birthday cake

playdough birthday cake 2 titled

It all started at Elliot’s (Grand)Papa’s birthday lunch yesterday.

Elliot and his cousins were running around looking for something to do when they found the playdough. After the excitement of a birthday cake, birthday candles were the logical addition to their lumps of dough.

Excuse the flour…

I promised Elliot we would make playdough at home the next day. I even went to the store at 9pm and hauled home a giant bag of flour so I would be prepared.

We made the jell-o playdough recipe from this site (omitting the cream of tartar because I was sure I had some, then couldn’t find it, and as if I was walking to the store AGAIN in the pouring rain at 7.30am), and it turned out well.

I pulled out birthday candles, spoon, knife, small spatula and some silicone cupcake liners. Elliot made this awesome giant layered birthday cake. Future pastry chef?
