Does anyone know of an on line tutorial on how to make a 3d santa figure from royal icing?
here is santa in a sleigh and the page before has a reindeer too
Thanks for the link. It was more of a stand up 3d figure I was looking for, but I can't find anything at all like it. I'll probably do this one flat on the cake. Thanks for your help.
Go to most any $ store and buy those clay ornaments of all kinds of figures. You can then copy them in fondant &/or royal.
For simplicity why not make a 'snowman' w/santa hat & beard? Just pipe 3 slightly graduating sized balls one on top of the other. Depending on how big you want your santa, you might want to make the lgst one, let it dry overnight (or all day) then put the next one on; let dry and apply the top one. You can push a coffee stir stick; or uncooked speghetti into the lgst one then pipe over it as you go up for some holding power. The top one can be flesh color; add arms & hands then hat. For color (suit) I'd paint it w/paste color thinned w/vodka or such.
Maybe I'm too late with this, but I recall seeing the message for help on Santa's in royal icing...I stumbled across this tutorial this morning...not sure if it is what I would consider a "tutorial" and the picture isn't very good, but it may help or give you an idea or two...
Oh my goodness Rocketmom, those are so cute. I think that I will attempt these for the children at the homeless shelter. They would love them.
Thanks for the great idea!
those are adorable!!!!
