I enjoyed making these yesterday. I did have to add 1/4 cup more of hot water. I added 1/2 tsp. each of powdered cloves, powdered green cardamom and powdered cinnamon to the dough while kneading it for a nice scented play dough. I made hearts, bowls(with the help of a Diwali diya mould)and rabbits shapes. Loved them all! I baked these for 3 hours at 150C. The glitter idea is simplest so I went for that. Just tossed in the cooled shapes into a bag with coloured glitter, shook well and then displayed them in a tray which I'll be gifting very soon. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
