Smooches for your sweetie

Here's how to make lips so smoochable you'll want to eat them!

This is what you'll need to make them:

-fondant smoother (or flat bottom of glass)

-red fondant

-ball tool

-leaf veiner

-Knife (not shown)

-Make a ball about 1 1/2" in diameter.

-Flatten it slightly with fondant smoother.

-Shape into a diamond shape.

-Using the back side of a knife, make a line across the diamond.

-With small end of ball tool, push into center of lips.

-Taking small end of leaf veiner push top of lips down to form an indent.

-Using fingers, gently "smoosh" the sides in to shape the lips a little.

-With the small end of the leaf veiner add detail for the lip creases.

-Then with the leaf veiner again, add more detail by opening up the lips a little more.

You are now ready to give your valentine a big ol' smooch!


  1. That is so cool! Thank you for all the pics :) I saw some lips on top of cupcakes on Flickr, but I assumed they had a mold for them. I will definitely make some of these for V-Day!
