This week I experimented for the first time with salt dough. Some of you may remember this interesting artistic medium from grade school (either your own or your children’s). Salt dough consists only of flour, salt and water and with it you can produce quite remarkable things. Baskets, wreaths, dolls, picture frames and so much more! With this being my first time I kept it pretty simple and seasonal, borrowing some from techniques I’ve used in the past (and hope to use in the near future) decorating cakes with fondant and marzipan!
These are available for sale here at Groundwell Farm Baked at 200 Church street! I’ll be working with salt dough some more and also moving into Pate Morte (similar to salt dough but made with sugar and a tiny bit of yeast) as time goes on!
