I would think they are gumpaste. I just love the pic of your dog....what breed is it? I have a pug and love her. My mom says pug stands for positively uncontrollable goofball and boy is that true.

They could be fondant but I would make them out of gumpaste. form them first and let them dry then paint them. Here are some I've done they are just freehanded.

I agree. I think gumpaste is the way to go, although it is really hard to tell from the picture what they are actually made from.

I hope you'll post picture of what you come up with. Should be really beautiful!

I love my pug. I thought the one onthe picture was a mixture because the nose looks longer than most pugs. Mine is also fawn colored. They are the best dogs but full of energy.

I would say gumpaste too, especially if you need it to last a while for a dummy cake! You can get the same effect w/fondant, but it takes way longer for it to dry before you can paint.
