Fondant Blue Bird is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made many birds for cakes. They are not only simple but fun and a cute addition to a cake design. Fondant is very versatile. There is no limit to what you can create with it. I make many characters with it for my cake designs. Starting with a simple bird will help you learn the basic skills needed to create more characters. Once you get started, you'll be anxious to make more. Get yourself a pack of Wilton fondant tools to help you create your characters. They are essential for your character work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a chocolate clay wishing well with a solid chocolate roof and small fondant flowers. When I made the little blue bird and put him on the edge of the well among the small flowers, it was too cute for words. This was filled with truffles and donated to a church for their dessert auction. It was one of the last items to raffle off and received quite a bit of action. I was so very proud and the winner asks me what I am coming up with next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made two of these little guys for a topper on my grandmothers birthday cake. They came out absolutely adorable! They weren't too terribly difficult, any difficulty was simply the fact that I am a beginner and trying to learn all of this stuff on my own. I absolutely recommend these little guys for birthday cakes, baby shower cakes or any fun spring themed cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the bird on a baby shower cake. The most critical part i felt was proportioning the size of the wings to the overall bird. Additionally, before detailing the wing and tail tips, make sure that the edges are very smooth and even in thickness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made a few of these for a baby shower cake. They were a great addition to the cake. I'm new at sculpting with fondant, but these little guys weren't that hard to make.
