Cake Batter
 
Readily available, cleans up easily, tastes good, feels great!
Cake batter has a number of advantages as a WAM substance:

- It's readily available at supermarkets (which often have self-checkouts, avoiding strange looks from cashiers)

- It's not especially expensive in decent quantities (a $1.19 box at major superstore makes around a quart)

- It cleans up easily (water soluble)

- It tastes good, and you can select your favorite flavor (though the box instructions warn not to eat raw batter, that may be for the eggs, not the powder in the box)

- It's very easy to get different thicknesses (more below)

Good results can be obtained by ignoring the instructions on the packaging and just adding water and mixing. 14 to 16 ounces (415 to 475 mL) per box yields a quart of batter about as thick as if one was actually using it to bake with. Going below 10 ounces per box makes much thicker batter, but makes mixing it much harder and cleanup more time-consuming (because the batter is less diluted to begin with).

A note to new/virgin WAMers: cleaning any substance out of your ears is more difficult than one would imagine, and it's important unless you want to try to explain what's in your ear or why you smell like chocolate to others!





Gluten allergies
When using cake mix or other batter based powders for gunge make sure the person / people involved don't have strong gluten allergy. I don't do well with flour or gluten and have noticed a lot of my skin mixed when it is getting washed off and the shower has steam I don't react well. I guess could be same for milk based substances as well? I have seen medical advice on here saying gluten can not be absorbed through skin but perhaps when it's in the stream it's not ok? Just a heads up! ALSO if using gluten free mixes like I use BECAREFULL with a people with but allergies as that can cause a way worse reaction if there is at times almond flour in gluten free baking
