How to make Slugterra's Eli Shane from Fondant and How to make Slugterra Slugs from Fondant

It was my son's 9th Birthday on Saturday and I could not resist giving you all a sneak peek of the Fondant Eli Shane figurine and the Fondant Slugterra Slugs Burpy, Joules and Doc that I made for his cake.

Making figurines and fondant details for cakes are my favourite part of cake making that is why I decided to share them first. I will share the whole Slugterra Cake with Fondant Eli Shane and Slugs with you in my next post...but beware the cake has a twist (my son has a wonderful imagination). Keep checking back.

I believe this is the first totally edible Eli Shane that you will find on the Internet. Unfortunately I did not take photos as I was making him, so there is no step for step photo tutorial on how to make a fondant Eli Shane and his slugs, but I will explain how I made them. I hope it will help some mommy or cake decorator out there and give you some inspiration and ideas.

Here they are---->
What do you think of them?
My son and his friends all loved them and could not tell some of them apart from the real toys @mymissionaccomplished


How to make Eli Shane from Slugterra and his slugs

HOW TO MAKE ELI SHANE OUT OF FONDANT

You will need:

  • Fondant or sugar paste in the following colours: Flesh tone, black, light blue, grey, white and orange. You can buy pre coloured fondant or colour your own. If you are using fondant, I usually add some CMC powder in the fondant to make it dry harder.
  • Fondant Tools
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Edible glue
  • Edible markers

How to make Eli Shane from Fondant:

Form his head out of skin tone fondant. I modelled his head around a lollipop stick. The lollipop stick helps for structure and to anchor him onto the cake.
Make hollows for his eyes with your tools and form a nose. Now make his eyes with the light blue fondant and some white. Stick to head with edible glue.

TIP: Keep a picture of Eli Shane handy that you can use as a guide.

I made a slit for his mouth opening and added some teeth (white fondant).
Add some eye brows in black.

Let the head dry. This does not take long if you use sugar paste or fondant with CMC or Tylose powder in it. I would say leave it about 30 minutes.

Then you can add some hair. I made my hair black. Stick with edible glue.

You can now add some detail to the eyes and around they eyes with edible markers. Look at your picture reference and see what you want to do.

I then formed his shirt out of black fondant and added all the details in grey and orange. I made his Slug Slinger with light blue, black and orange star. I stuck it to his body with edible glue.
Make his black sleeves and add some arms from flesh tone fondant. Let dry.
Attach arms to body with edible glue. You can put a toothpick in if you feel your arms need more support. Please remember to tell the people who will eat the cake that you did that!
Add some details on shoulders.

For his legs I mixed some blue, grey and black fondant to make denim colour. I think I could have made it even more blue, but I liked it darker. I put the legs in a crouching position and let it dry like that. Once dry I added some shoes. I know Eli Shane wears boots, but honestly I thought the shoes looked better for the position he was in. The boots made him look like he had no legs at all!

Once the legs and shoes were dry I attached his bottom half to the top half. I kept the lollipop stick a bit longer so it can stick into the cake for support and to keep him up.

To finish him off I made his blaster. I could have made it bigger...Maybe next time!

And that is  How you make Eli Shane from fondant!
