Put a small amount of your liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly. Mix until all the liquid has been absorbed by your dry ingredients. Continue adding small amounts of the liquid mixture until you’ve used it all up.


Step 4:

Now that you’ve mixed all the ingredients together, time to put it in the mold. Put a little more than what your mold can hold on both sides and press them together until it clips. You’d want to put more so your mixture get pressed together making it solid.
