How to make Glue Slime (non-edible)
Edible Slime
Recipe:
4 cans of vanilla
pudding (7 lbs.
each; buy at
Sam's or Costco)
1 cup water
1 jar professional
quality
concentrated icing
paste
(1 ounce, Leaf
Green; can be
purchased in cake
decorating section
of hobby stores)
Secret Slime Stuff
Blue Magic Mud (Non-edible)
Supplies: ¼ Cup of Water, 1 Cup of Cornstarch, Blue Food
Coloring, Bowl.

What happens: Pour the cornstarch, water, and a few drops of
food coloring into the bowl. Mix it up with your hands and then
continue to play with it…it’s properties are similar to quick sand.
Pick up a clump and roll it into a ball. Next hold the ball still and
watch what happens! This gooey experiment is perfect for the
kitchen table or outside.  *Remember to dump this in the trash
and not down the sink when you’re done playing.

Explanation:  When you squeeze the mixture it pushes the water
out to the surface and when you stop the pressure the water
goes back into it…

Slime (or Lime Curd) Filling:
2/3 cup strained fresh lime juice
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
10-12 drops green food coloring

In a small sauce pan, over medium heat,
dissolve sugar into lime juice.
Lightly beat eggs in a small/medium bowl.
Whisking constantly, slowly trickle hot
lime/sugar syrup into the eggs. Beat for about
1 minute, until well combined, then transfer

melted butter, eggs, vanilla and milk. Pour into
flour mixture and stir until just combined and
no streaks of flour remain.

Slime-Filled Cupcakes
SLIME TIME!
Filling and Frosting
Take a cooled cupcake and, using a small pairing knife,
of the top. Trim off the pointy end of the cone, leaving a
flat circle of cake. Set aside the circle and discard (or
eat) the rest of the cone. Repeat this process for all the
Take the slime filling and spoon about tablespoon into
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.

Swampy Vanilla Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 cups confectioners’ sugar
2-4 tablespoons milk
green food coloring

Cream butter with an electric mixer until soft. Add vanilla
and gradually add in sugar until most has been
incorporated. Mixture will look a bit sandy. Add in milk
as necessary (start with 2 tbsp), along with any
remaining sugar, until frosting reaches a thick, but easy-
to-spread consistency. Add green food coloring until
desired green color is reached. Add in a few drops of
red with the green for a brownish color, or a drop or two
of blue to deepen the green.

Peppermint Slime Dough
2 Cups Water
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Iodine Salt
4 Teaspoons Cream of Tarter
4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
4 Tablespoons Peppermint Extract
Glitter  (Think crazy color glitter!)







Measure out water, flour, salt, cream of
tartar and vegetable oil into a heavy,
medium size sauce pan. Over low heat,
stir the mixture contentiously using a
wooden spoon until it begins to thicken
and pull away from the sides of the
sauce pan.

Remove the mixture from the burner
and add peppermint extract and mix
thoroughly. Heavily flour a counter top
and spread mixture out to knead. The
mixture will be moderately gooey until
you knead the flour into it. As you add
flour a small amount at a time and
knead the mixture, it will take on the
continence of a firmer ball and hold it's
shape.

Add your glitter if desired and knead
into the dough. I prefer to use a white,
sparke glitter to resemble snow. This
dough will stay soft and retain it's scent
for weeks, if stored in an air tight
container.
(pictured above)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 cup cold water

I used this dough recipe to
Texas.  Before it dries you
can add railroad tracks,
mountains, or streams.  
After it dries you can paint
it!

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
(if needed).
