Fondant Christmas Figurines

A friend of mine held her daughter's 5th Birthday Party just before Christmas and the Birthday girl wanted a Christmas Party! What fun...Christmas just before Christmas!

She asked me to make her some Christmas figurines for her daughters Birthday Cake, which was a beautiful Gingerbread House (she baked it herself). I decided to make Santa, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and a Snowman.

HOW TO MAKE A FONDANT SANTA CLAUSE



You will need:

Red fondant
Light pink or skin coloured fondant
White fondant
Black fondant
Yellow fondant
Pearl luster dust
Edible glue














Make Santa's hat with red fondant, add a white fondant ball to the top. Let it dry. Form his body, arms and legs out of red fondant and let dry. Attach some hands from pink fondant. Make a belt from the black fondant and a buckle with the yellow and attach to the body. Add white to the bottom of his jacket, sleeves and pants. Make his head out of the light pink or flesh coloured fondant. Attach head to body with small dowel stick or kebab scewer (just remember to tell the mom that there is a stick in the figurine) Make small "snakes" out of the white fondant and attach to face with edible glue, also make some hair out of the white fondant and attach to back of head. You can attach the hat once the hair is dry. Add eyes to face. Dust beard with pearl luster dust for that magical glow!

I made a bag of gifts for Santa out of green fondant and added a red fondant bow and a tag with the Birthday girl's name on it.


                    




HOW TO MAKE A FONDANT RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER


You will need:

Brown fondant
Black fondant
White fondant
Red fondant
Green fondant
Edible glue















Form Reindeer head, body, arms and legs out of brown fondant. Let the arms, legs and head dry completely before you attach it to the body. The scarf I made out of red and green fondant that I rolled out into thin "snakes" and put them next to each other, then rolled them with a rolling pin. Attach scarf to neck. Attach eyes, mouth and nose to face. Make some antlers out of black fondant and attach to head.

I made some carrots with orange and green fondant. Reindeers have to have their carrots!





HOW TO MAKE A FONDANT SNOWMAN


You will need:

White fondant
Green fondant
Red fondant
Black fondant
Orange fondant
















Make three balls out of the white fondant. Let them dry completely before attaching to each other. Make a hat out of the green fondant, make some decoration for your hat from white and red fondant. I like the red and white trimming on the hat as it had the candy cane colours. I made our snowman a red scarf and put it around his neck. Attach some coal (black fondant) eyes and a orange fondant carrot for his nose.




















I also made a few candy canes for her to put around the cake. They are pretty easy to make, just roll out "snakes" of fondant, and put two colours together. Shape the candy cane and let dry. I made some white ones which I dusted with silver luster dust.













It was alot of fun to make, but very difficult in this heat! I think it came out pretty cute in the end and the Birthday girl just loved it! :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
