Fondant Elephant


Step 1

Mix 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex into 16 oz. fondant to make 2 animals. Tint: 4 in. ball light blue, 1 in. ball medium blue. You will also need a small amount of icing tinted black to pipe fine details.

Step 2

Using lighter blue, shape a 1 in. ball and flatten to 1 1/2 in. diameter for head. Shape a tapered 1/2 x 1 1/2 in. long log for trunk. Curve trunk; draw lines with modeling stick and indent trunk with rounded end of thin modeling stick. Roll out some light and some dark blue 1/16 in. thick. Cut outer and inner ears using medium heart Cut-Out. Press edges of outer ear to make it about 1/8 in. larger; attach inner ear then trim 1/2 in. off bottom point. Cut out a 1/2 in. oval; cut slits and curl up for his hair. Indent eye sockets with small ball tool. Use icing to pipe tip 1 outline eyebrows, tip 2 dot eyes and outline and fill-in mouth.
