564tamara....I wonder about the premade korker, as I've never used it. I wrap and bake my own so I have control over temp, starching, etc. With the premade you pretty much have to take what you get, unless you know personally who you're buying from. KWIM?

That's what I was thinking...I got some dowels so I can make my own. Do I just buy a can of spray starch like for clothes? I got the premade in a destash and it's definately not starched. How long should I bake them and what temp works good? Thanks!!
