Anyone know link or tutorial for making fondant figurines? especially how to make the clothes for them. I figured out how to make head, hair, arms, legs, body, but not the clothes. I don't want naked figurines. lol.
Please help here. Thanks a lot.

Go to the section called "pasteles" (cakes) and click on whatever looks interesting.
