AOh boy... I was determined last night to make a puppy out of fondant. It was awful. I actually had to step away from the fondant because I was getting frustrated.

So, this morning I gave it another try. It's far from perfect but it's a start.

ANo, it is perfectly perfect!! Are you a sculptor already, or do you just have natural mad fondant skills?

You mean sculpted ;-) And you are a complete natural, just amazing! I have been attempting to sculpt fondant and gum paste for a few years now and yours are WAY better than mine. I have a request for you to try some people next, lol.

AOops sorry... English is my second language so sometimes I make mistakes.

People? Hmm... Now that's a challenge. They might end up looking like cartoons.

I am trying really hard to learn new skills - I spend a lot of time watching videos online and just play with fondant. Marshmallows and powdered sugar is not a big waste if I have to throw some out.

AThank you :) I am trying really hard. I am not sure if I am ready for people yet. I guess I have to buy some Gumpaste first :( love the MMF but it seems like it's too soft for little details :(

Oh he is just adorable, Make your gumpaste ,it really doesn't take long and it is way cheaper. I like to use fondant and then just dip it into tylose , until I get the right consistency.  Or a mix of gumpaste and fondant together works well too.
