eat) the rest of the cone. Repeat this process for all the
each cupcake cavity, filling it almost to the top with lime
curd. Top off with the flat circle of cake you just
removed to seal the hole and hold the “black lagoon”
filling in place.
Once all the cupcakes are filled, they can be frosted
just as ordinary cupcakes.

How to make it:
Mix table salt and flour
together in a big bowl.
Gradually add 1/2 cup of
water and mix to desired
consistency. Knead the
dough on a flat surface,
adding a few more drops of
water as needed (but not
making it too moist).
Once the dough is made,
you can divide it up into
small portions to roll into
1/8" thick pieces with a
rolling pin. Use cookie
cutters to cut out a variety
of shapes, and place the
shapes on wax paper or
other surface to dry. You
can also make ornaments!
Let the shapes to dry for a
day or two, turning them
over periodically to speed
up the drying process. After
they dry you can sand them
