First Attempt at Fondant Characters

I LOVE my boys, maybe a little too much (if that's possible)

My eldest, Harvey, is 2 (3 in Nov) and he's really started making me laugh with some of the things that come out of his mouth.

Todays favourite....

Harvey - "Look what I draw for you mummy!"
Me - "Aw, beautiful. What is it?"
Harvey - "A scribble!"

Now..... it might just be me, as Harvey is my baby, but I found this hilarious!

Preston, being 8 1/2 mths is a bit limited with the funnies, but has the most amusing hair and his bed-head every morning always makes me laugh..... what do you think?

As my boy are SO ADORABLE I was in a cutey mood yesterday and decided to try an make some fondant characters. I have a book called Cake Characters (Cozy)by Ann Pickardit has really sweet fondant animals and people to practise, and a really handy step by step guide for each one. This book also has a great "ball" size chart so you can get your characters exact.

My fave animals are the penguins, the pigs and the teddy. I really love the duck but that's because it's the easiest animal to make in the book (I made 3).

I only tried the ducks and the snowman, luckily the snowman came out brilliantly! The ducks need a little more work. But for a first EVER attempt at fondant I reckon I did pretty well ~ also factor in that Harvey was "making characters" too.

Here's the pics......

Harvey thought it was playdough!

I was wondering why he wasn't hassling me to eat it all the time.

He loves the snowman....

I will be making more things (just bought a big pack of fondant) so I'll post what I come up with ~ even if it's rubbush, I promise.
