The exact science behind what could be one of the greatest innovations in children's afternoon activities isn't clear, but what's certain is that somewhere some brilliant chemist has found a way to make a type of Play-Doh that's as delicious -- and safe -- to eat as it looks.
After all, any kid will tell you that technically all Play-Doh is edible -- as long as you can stomach the awful flavour, horrible aftertaste, and damage it does to your colon. But this Edible Sweet Art supposedly makes the mouldable material downright tasty so you don't have to think twice about nibbling at the bowl of faux soft serve you just extruded. The ice cream kit pictured above is just $US17, which makes it cheaper than taking the family to Baskin Robbins. And instead of melting away, the leftovers can be turned into other wonderful creations. [AMAV]
