First time using fondant

I am a little disappointed i have not had any scrapping time this week.  But due to being sick all week i just have not had any energy to do anything anyways.
I still have seven more tutu's to go so hopefully i can get back to my scraproom soon.
My daughter was at her pre kindergarten class yesterday afternoon for two and a half hours so i decided to work on some sea creatures  from fondant.  A friend of mine asked if i could make her daughters cupcakes for her birthday this weekend so i gladly excepted.  She said she wanted fish and sharks and octopus.  So i thought i would try fondant  for the first time.  Must say it was pretty easy to work with.  I made these cute creatures in just under 3 hours.  I still have seaweed to make and some other sea life.  I should be able to share the pictures with you on Sunday.
My daughters birthday is in six weeks and she is having a ballerina party so i might end up making tutu's from fondant.  If any one has any great design ideas let em know.
Finally the weekend is here so enjoy your Friday!

  9. Wow, that's amazing! I made fondant pinwheel for my son's birthday, that was my first time, but they weren't nearly as good as yours!

    For tutus, I'd look into gum paste instead of fondant. Fondant is not good for thin designs.
