  5. Add the cornstarch water shake, beating constantly. Continue beating until form a thick cream but still liquid.
  6. . Remove from heat and immediately add to your favorite mold(s). Use the flexible spatula to remove the liquid.
  7. Let the mixture cool to room temperature until you can comfortably touch the mold. Then, refrigerate the mixture for 3 hours.
