I am new here and don't know if i am posting in the right place so please let me know if i am wrong.
Can anyone recommend a book (or website, or anything else) that would give me step by step instructions on how to make fondant figures like lions, people, elephants, etc.
I have the book Fun & Original Character Cakes by Maisie Parrish. Lots of detailed instructions.
You can also find useful instructions in books about polymer clay, just skip the baking part!
Check your local library.
