I want to make my dad a fathers day cake & I'd like to make a fondant riding lawn mower similar to the one in this photo... How can I make this? Are there any tutorials out there for making riding lawn mowers?

Hello Britterfly,

 

At the time I made the mower, it was my first attempt so I did not take pictures. I made these drawings after-the-fact. Hope you can follow them. I used MMF with Tylose mixed in to make the mower figurine. You could use store-bought fondant just as easy. Tylose is a must to help the figurine dry and hold it's shape. When I printed out the parts sheet on standard sized letter paper, the part sizes were pretty much the exact size in real life.

 

A photo tutorial would be better, but this is all I've got...

 

I've also replied to your PM...
