Step 2

Using the vein tool or cocktail stick, draw legs onto the front of the body. Roll 2 small balls of fondant for the paws and draw toes by adding 3 lines into the front of the feet.

For the tail, roll a long thin sausage shape and taper the end to a point for the tail. Using a brush of water, stick it onto the back of the body, curling it up to rest into a curl on a pot, or something similar, until the tail has dried in place.

For the cheeks, roll 2 small balls of white fondant and squash flat with the tip of your finger and do the same with the coloured fondant for the eyes. Repeat with smaller dots of black fondant for the pupils.

For the bib, roll a piece of white fondant and cut triangles out for the fur. Cut a small triangle from the pink fondant for the nose.
