Seriously, where the f*ck is your Cream of Tartar when you need it? Now, my interest in popping down to the local supermarket braless and in my dakkies on a Sunday morning was nil, so I had to find out what the hell Cream of Tartar actually was and whether there was a suitable substitute. And in my search, I discover that commercial Cream of Tartar contains aluminium. Who knew?
So I did find a fabulous playdough recipe without cream of tartar (it’s American though, so I had to spell “colouring” properly) which is dead easy and Inky is happy. Isn’t that all that matters?
