I am making a Mac & Me cake (a knock off of ET).  His eyes look human.  Does anyone know how to make eyes like his??  I'm trying to attach photo, but I can't figure out this new format...

are you doing a picture or a figurine or a sculpture and using what mediums

The cake will be a sculpted face of Mac.  Using fondant.  Do you know how to attach a pic so I can show you what she wants?

click on 'gallery' up there and "add a photo" to your gallery and post the link -- some have been able to copy & paste the photo after it's in the gallery -- or post a link to it anywhere online already --

i would do his skin with modeling chocolate which is so much more forgiving than fondant -- you can remove all traces of say for example adding on the eye lid after you finish the eye -- you can remove the seam with the heat of your fingertips --

i would make the white part of his eye and -- i would test this first and make sure it all worked but i would get all the right underlying colors onto his eye then paint his eye with piping gel to get that glassy look and the light brown color i'd try that in piping gel too but y'know you'd want to have the black already down in there and the light brown color too underneath -- but i would use piping gel and then be ready to smooth out the piping lines with a small spatula -- do all that before you put on the rest of his face

that's my first thoughts on that
