I made this fondant character to see if I could do it. I think the head turned out pretty nice, but the hands and feet leave a lot to be desired. Does anyone have any tips for making hands and feet that look as nice as the characters aine2 makes?

you may want to purchase aine2's woman tutorial. I think it cost me around $10. She goes over feet and hands (along with the entire character). I invested in a scale that does grams so I could get my character proportions right. I'm still finishing up the first character with correct measurement to go on a grad cake for next saturday.

For arms to hands,

- roll a ball of fondant into a sausage.
- pick an end to be the hand and ohh I would guess about 1/4 of an inch in (or less depending on the size of your figure) roll it slightly thinner (this is the wrist). It should look like a drum stick (a round shape slightly thin and then thickening out for the arm)
- slightly flatten the round part...this will be the hand
- cut an angled slice (this will be the thumb) so it looks like a mitten, but then very gently roll it between your fingers so it be comes a thumb
- cut 3 up and down lines on the top part of the mitten and roll them gingerly as well into fingers.

You can use some of the tools to add fingernails indents too if you wanted. I haven't made feet yet so I can't help you there. But aine2 tutorials are WONDERFUL or keep your eyes out for debbie brown books they are great as well! If you need any clarification, feel free to message me! icon_smile.gif

Good luck!

Maybe making shoes would be easier than toes?

I'm the same way, but usually am extra careful where links are involved. icon_biggrin.gif
