Ok, so i have to put some bananas on a cake friday, and i was just going to pipe them, mostly because i am very new to fondant, only worked with it once, but i think it would look so much better with 3D ones made with fondant, like the pics of some on the cakes on here........but i have no idea where to start, anyone have a easy way to make them or explain them??

Super simple! Just roll a log of yellow fondant to the size you'd like the banana to be. Bend each end slightly inward to make a curve. Then paint brown food coloring on one end and paint little random stripes on each banana to make the peel.

If you want it to look like a peeled banana, roll a log of a pale yellow fondant for the banana itself. Then wrap a log of yellow fondant around it and slice down 2 or 3 strips to make the peel look like it's opened. Hope that makes sense.

It's even easier to use food coloring markers for the brown! icon_smile.gif
