Does anyone know if there is a tutorial or a good book out there that can show me how to make a fondant or gumpaste mouse figure?

I just went through lots of struggle w/ this. There is a picture of my mouse in my photos. I researched 'how to draw a mouse', and ultimately turned a flat pencil drawn mouse into a 3-D character.

there is a forum thread on how to make figures, it has links to a variety of animals and people.

If you can't find that, I would do a google search on making it with clay, same technique just a slightly different medium.

You'll need to decide if you want a whimsical appearing mouse, or a realistic looking mouse. I found it pretty easy to make a whimsical one, but I needed a realistic mouse. I think the one I came up with was as close as I'm going to obtain, since I'm far from expert. I threw out my 3 whimsical mice, as they looked like they should have been in a cartoon.

Thanks all for the info. I was thinking more along the lines of the mouse that is in the Debbie Brown's book with the pumpkin or any of the pumpkin pics from here with little mouse heads and bodies poking out. So I think that would be whimsical.
