    I just want to point out that there is a spelling error in step 7. It says “hallway” instead of “halfway”.

    Other than that though, it sounds delicious and I will definitely be making this!!

      Lol! Pouring water so that it reached the hallway would be incredibly messy. Thanks for the heads up 🙂
