I am trying to decorate cupcakes using a tiny 1 1/2 inch train fondant cutouts. I want to find a tiny circle cutter to make the wheels. Any tips?
Also still on the look out for a 1 1/2 inch car cutout.

Off the Beaten Path usually has mini car cookie cutters in stock, but I think they are sold out right now:

Let the kids use different types of wrapped candy to create a train. Certain types of candy work well for the craft, but you can adapt the candy based on personal preference and available resources.

use a drinking straw , they are great for doing small circles and if you stiffen up the fondant with a bit of tylose first it helps keep the shape and are easier to handle.

Chellescakes, you are a genius (also the person who mentioned Makin's Clay Extruder to make fondant snakes). Thank you.
