When I go to Ikea, I sometimes stop by the little food market area on my way out. They sell some great frozen desserts, cheap pizza slices, and sparkling apple juice that surprisingly doesn't contain high-fructose corn syrup.
Last time I was there, I found this.
It tastes gross. That is, it hardly has a taste at all. But I thought it had some possibilities, maybe for cake decorating.
It's stiff, not very pliable.
I managed to tie a little bow.
A tangled blob.
If you pull too hard, when tying, it breaks off.
I was hoping I'd figure out some great uses for this, but it's harder than it looks to work with.
