    Then just mix everything up until you get a really clumpy, slightly moist, consistency. There are many methodologies that say you should put the liquid in a spray bottle and just spray it on so the mixture doesn’t become too moist, but you can always add some corn starch to dry it out if you get a little heavy handed with the liquids.

    Then just fill your mold with the mixture remembering to pack it in very tightly because it’s such a light airy powder. Making a huge mess is totally optional.
