First of all, I just want to say that this is a great site!!! I love it, and I love that all the members are willing to share their tips and ideas, making the rest of us better in what we do. It's awesome!

I am new to the site, and new to the world of cakes.

I have been looking for guidance on how to make fondant animals, I've never make one before, but no luck yet. I read in some of the threads here that there are tutorials, but I just can't find them.

Help please!!

Thank you very much!!

Hi and welcome to'll soon become as addicted as the rest of us! icon_biggrin.gif

There is a member here by the name of "aine2"....if you search under "memberlist" for her name and go to her profile she has some tutorial links on her website.

Also I find a ton of tutorials by going to "google" and search for "youtube videos making fondant animals" or whatever else you need.

good luck!

I agree with dkelly-you must look up aine2. I used her youtube videos to make the dogs for my son's birthday cake and have used her techniques for the few other animals I have made. I have just started with the figure modeling, but I think hers have been the best videos I have found so far. Youtube has a lot of fondant and gumpaste videos and you can also google whatever you are looking for to find lots of help.

Also, try searching for "clay animals" , the technique is the same and sometimes you can find more tutorials or different animals.
