I need to make a bucket (barbie doll sized) out of fondant? Anyone have ideas? Would a shot glass work? Help... icon_cry.gif

I think that I would take a piece of fondant, shape into a "log" the height and width that I needed for my bucket and then scoop out the inside and shape; draw the handle on the side of the bucket. Another option would be to roll out your fondant, cut a circle for the bottom of the bucket then a piece the height of the bucket and long enough wrap around the circle and glue the "bottom" to it. Since it's so small, think the other way would be easier. Can groove the bucket with a tool too.

I've tried both ways of doing a bucket and still I wasn't successful. I will be keeping an eye on this thread! icon_biggrin.gif

try molding it on a thimble.

Or mold it around a shaped clump of Rice Krispies Treats.

Take a small amount of fondant and mold it around the head of a pencil eraser then gently slide it off. It should be the size of Barbie doll accessories..

I made one by shaping fondant (with Tylose for stability) around a pill bottle. It really depends on how big you want your bucket (5 gal or small pail) as to what you use for shaping. I also attached a round disc of fondant on the bottom to complete it. HTH! I'll upload a pic to my photos so you can see what I mean.
