Sugar modeling dough - Creative recipes - Educatall

Sugar modeling dough



  • 4 cups of icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of corn syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • A few drops of food coloring
  • For scented dough, you will need lemon, cinnamon, or maple extract (or extract of your choice)

Note: You may have to adjust the quantities since the brand and/or the shelf-life of the products used can influence how the ingredients interact.


  1. Add all ingredients except food coloring to a very large bowl.
  2. Mix vigorously with a wooden spoon.
  3. Divide the mixture into tiny portions. Ideally, use a muffin tin.
  4. Add a different color of food coloring to each portion.
  5. Knead the dough with your hands (wear gloves to avoid stains) until color is uniform.
  6. Store in airtight containers or plastic bags in the refrigerator.
  7. Use the dough to create a variety of shapes and objects. Let creations dry for 24 to 48 hours before manipulating them to avoid breaking them.
