no instructions, sorry. but you can find many recipes for salt dough on line. i don't remember now how long in micro. easy to do one and check the time it took. they can also be baked at 200 in the oven , til they are dry. poke a hole in them for hanging. i used a drinking straw. micro works so well because you can stop it and make sure hole still open. if not , poke it again.i used many different types of cookie cutters. not just stars, etc. baseball mitts and various animals as well. let me know if you do them. salt dough is cheap. they say can be painted with acrylic paint as well.

I baked a sponge cake. It's cooling upside down at the moment. It is going in the trifle which is dessert tomorrow for my annual solstice dinner party.

I made a salt dough nativity one year and painted them with acrylic paints. it worked great but if you have to mix the paints with water go easy on the water as it can re-hydrate the dough.

the cakes are baked. there were a bit of a hassle. first i put to much batter , they looked like frogs and stuck. next pan i sprayed and used less batter. going to be hard to decorate. may have to use candy confetti for the eyes and buttons. at any rate, to tired to do it now. finished typing my quilt and am pooped. dinner and then i am done for day.
