Could anyone suggest a good book or website that shows how to make fondant barnyard animals? Thanks!
The only video I can think of offhand is Aine2's sheep tutorial on YouTube.
What I do is use books that are meant for making clay animals- the principle is the same, just a different medium.
I agree ^^^^^^..look for books on clay sculpting. They are wonderfully detailed and i think you will be able to apply the same techniques to your gumpaste.
I saw one tioday at the bookstore. It's called Cake Decorator's Motif Bible: 150 Fabulous Fondant Designs.
Thanks everyone! I'll check out your suggestions!
I have found a lot of information just by typing different searches into google or dogpile--like polymer animals, clay animals,etc; then you can go to online sites and they have some directions--kind of hit and miss. Also look in the gallery section here on fondant figures--there are lots of examples and you can always pm someone!
try this one
i thought I had some more on my favs, but I guess not
I know everyone has already said the same, I just wanted to agree with them. If you use the clay books they even give you little templates in there to get your dimensions right. It helped me out alot on my farm animals. The one I've used the most is a sculpey book and hot off the press is the publisher.
I have tried to make some and I always get mine out of proportion and just can't get them right.... I will try some of these resources
