This was another fondant animal figurine that I made last month (read about my first fondant animal here). I have taken some pictures to show you the process.
What You Need
Fondant (black, dark brown, light brown, red, green and gray)
Fondant rolling pin
Small craft knife
Small fondant ball modelling tool
Fondant scallop modelling tool
Round scallop cutter
Food dedicated paint brush
White chocolate (melted) or white food gel color
Dried pasta stick
Knead a pinch of tylose powder into the dark brown fondant. Roll a portion into an egg shape for the body. Place on a piece of parchment paper so it won’t stick and can be moved around easily. Shape two smaller dark brown fondant of same size into teardrop shapes for the horse’s feet. Bend the round ends slightly like an L shape and flatten the ends. Roll two more dark brown fondant pieces into long teardrop shapes for the upper limbs. Glue all four pieces to the body with water. Brush one end of a pasta stick with water then insert into the body as a support.
For the head, roll a medium size dark brown fondant into a ball then shape it into a cashew. Roll some light brown fondant into a small ball then flatten into a disc. Stick this onto the head with water as the snout of the horse. Use a fondant ball tool to make the nostrils. Make a smiley face with a scallop modelling tool.
Trim the pasta stick to about half of the height of the head. Brush with water then stick in the head. Roll little balls of dark brown fondant into triangles for the ears and black fondant into two tiny balls for the eyes. Attach to the head with water. Use white icing or melted white chocolate to draw on the eyes.
For the hooves, wrap the bottom part of each limb with black fondant strips or discs. Make the horseshoes out of gray fondant and attach to the lower limb. Poke some holes with a toothpick. For the mane, roll black fondant into short strings and attach them to the back of the neck and top of the head. Make red fondant strips for the bridle and attach to the head with water. Roll gray fondant into two tiny balls, flatten slightly and attach to each side of the bridle as the bits.
Knead a pinch of tylose powder into the green fondant. Roll out fondant thinly then cut out a circle with a round scallop cutter. Glue the horse on top. Take some black fondant strings and pinch the top together to make the horse’s tail. Attach to the bottom of the horse with water. I also made a number 2 to represent the age of the birthday girl. Let the horse dry in a cool place overnight.
Place the horse on top of the cake when it’s dried.
