Malleable Materials

I'm certain that you have all worked with clay, play dough and many other molding materials. Each one provides its own challenges and does not always turn out the way we intend. This can be frustrating for both teachers and students who invest a great deal of time in working with these products.  We recently introduced a wonderful malleable product in our classrooms. Of course, as with all new materials, the children required instruction. Here is a look at what  happened with fondant and gum paste when it was used for making flowers as well as decorating cupcakes.
We continue to experiment with it.
