You can also look for books on clay figures and characters if you are having a hard time finding books on fondant characters.

Check out your local craft store. Polymer clay is the one to look for. There are many books on making figures and the procedure is exactly the same just using gumpaste/fondant.

You can also look on youtube.com and they have quite a few videos you can watch. I have a couple of the polymer clay books, and Debbie Brown books are pretty good for this too. You can also go to Aine2's website and buy her tutorials which are amazing. I also went on the Louisiana library website and checked out every cake decorating book they have! Have fun,

There are lots of step by step instructions right here for sculpting figures. Look for them under templates in the galleries.

Also the sculpy books for kids are great.

Also I agree with the you tube videos. Lots of stuff there to learn!

Aine2 did a How to Make a Teddy Bear tutorial. It was really cute!
