How do you make those little fondant banana's? I have someone who is wanting me to make a curious George on top of a bunch of banana's. I'm not sure how to make the banana's. Any suggestion's would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Alisha

Start with large/little yellow fondant sausage shapes and taper then curve. Add additional color detail/s as desired:

As you can see in these cakes, they're not all the same.

I made some and just free handed them. Just like JanH said. They were very easy and looked pretty real. I used Americolor markers to add the accent colors.

Don't worry about them all being exactly alike, when you buy bananas they are all a little different - size, curve, coloring, etc! Have fun and good luck!

I made mine using a clay extruder. I just made a long rope, then cut them to the lengths I wanted. Then I tapered each end. Once they were dry, I dipped the each end in some brown gel color that I had thinned a little with vanilla.

Wow, glad I found this! I'm making a Curious George cake later this month, too. Not to hijack this post, but what about making the "peeled" bananas? I've seen some cakes where George is holding a peeled banana. Does anyone have tips for making those?

At the prospect of making dozens of these bananas, I take the lazy man's approach and buy this:
