Pink elephant

This is another figurine I made out of fondant.  I think it would have been better to use gumpaste as it sets better and is harder too but I only had fondant to work with. I followed a video on You Tube for instructions on how to make it.

If you want to learn how to make this cutie, check out this other video by yourstrulytx.  Have fun! :)

my lil pony

After the success of making little Harry Potter for the Castle cake, I decided to try making some other figurines.  Having no experience on where to begin, I started looking through the Net and You Tube to get some ideas.  Thank goodness for kind people out there who share stuff with you.  I watched this video by yourstrulytx on how to make this cute lil pony and thought I'd share it with you.

Isn't he adorable?! :)

Let me know if you make one too!

Castle cake

My friend's daughter wanted a Harry Potter castle cake for her birthday.  I have never attempted making sugar figurines, let alone a 3D castle!  I was up for the challenge though and with my friend's help, we came up with this cake.  We were quite pleased with it, and my friend's daughter was happy too!

Here is my version of a wizard made out of fondant.  It took 4 hours to make and was the first one I have attempted.  I am quite pleased with it and I must say it has made me want to make more figurines!
