Did I ever get a hoot out of this recipe!!! I was re-creating a craft that I had done many years ago, using glue, shredded decorative paper napkins and a vase. I only needed 1/2 the recipe so this worked out perfect for me. I was tickled pink that I actually had all the ingredients on hand...because usually I never have milk!!! I spend a good part of 1 hour playing around like a kid again. Greatest of fun! Thanks for the posting....I had a blast with it!!!
