I could have sworn there was a folder somewhere in the forums that had a bunch of animal tutorials - kind of like the flower one that's been stickied. For the life of me, I can't find it! Nor can I find a decent instructional anywhere on how to make a cat figure out of fondant or gumpaste. I just need a little one to put as a topper for a 6 inch cake. Does anyone know where I can find a good tutorial for this? My attempts so far look like a bad kindergarten project! icon_lol.gif

Lorraine (the queen of figures) has a 16 minute video showing how to make a "cheeky cat"'s exclusive to members of her site.

Thanks for the link! I did sign up and watched the vid. I def. got some good ideas from it, but kind of did my own thing using a mish mash of techniques from like 8 or 9 different tutorials, including the cheeky cat. lol. It's not great, but pretty cool for a first attempt. I'm happy with it. Once again, thank you.
