How to make Colonial Sugar Cones

Making these is a pretty simple task but can be messy so prepare accordingly.   
Ingredients needed are as follows
8 cups of flour
2 cups of salt
2 cups of WARM water

Combine all of your ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead the dough until it is pliable. (You can add some essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice)! This part is optional but I use Cinnamon because of its long lasting and strong smell! When you are done with that step you need to cover it with Saran wrap or a air tight container and store it in the refrigerator over night! The next morning you can use the container or bottle or whatever you want to use as a mold and use it. (NOTE) use some oil on the inside of your container so not to get your dough stuck to your mold. Finally, shake out of your mold carefully and let dry for around 3-4 hours. To finish off your project and to give it that colonial look that so many peeps love! Try wrapping tea stained cheesecloth around the finished sugar cone and tieing it with jute cording! Walla! You made a Colonial Sugar Cone!
