I have been asked many times about these, so I thought I would post. Any questions contact me.....

Happy Baking~

Bubblegum buddies


Bubblegum balls (small or large)
Wax or parchment paper
Flower nail (optional)
Tips 1, 3, 7, 21 (most popular)
Royal Icing (medium to thick consistency)

Note: some people I know that do these do one at a time (hence the flower nail) my aunt just pulls a long sheet of paper out on the counter and does it like an assembly line. Its quicker, and easier for herthis way as you let them dry they all get the same drying time.

1)  With tip 21, make a ring of royal icing. The ring should be about ½ inch wider then the gumball, so it will hold the ball and the decorations. Let dry 15-20 mins.
2)  With tip 7, make the legs/paws of the animal. Go from the bottom of the ball to the middle and come down and angled out (the out will be the foot/paw), depending on the animal you are doing, you need to put a ball of icing in between the front legs to form front paws. (If you are doing a baby you would got to the top of the bent knees and pipe out arms from the bent knee area to almost the tummy. You would use tip 1 (or 2 or 3) to add fingers)
3)  With tip 7, make the head (round circle), cheeks, ears. Flatten the balls slightly that will be the cheeks, (for detail). (For people you would pipe ears with tips 1,2 or3)
4)  With tip 3, add nose, and with tip 1 add the eyes.
5)  Add detail from here mane, bows, etc.
6)  Let them dry at least overnight. You can package them up the next morning if you have to.

This is the first that I have seen or heard of these....they are sooo cute. I wonder what the backs look like, are they finished looking at all or not. I guess that would depend on what you want to do with them

Saw these in candy shop for 2.50 each! Wish my kids were younger so I could get away with making my own for Easter baskets!
