Tuesday toppers: Easter


Its hard to believe, but Easter is just around the corner. So i pulled out my fondant and sat down to make a few toppers that even the easter bunny himself would love. Over the next two weeks i'm going to show you how to make all three of these little toppers just because i'm feeling generous that way :D. This weeks topper is going to be a cute little carrot and here's what you'll need to make one:



-Fondant smoother
-Knife
-Paint brush and water
-Leaf veiner
-Orange and green fondant



-Take a 1" ball of fondant and roll it out into a log.
-Using a fondant smoother at an angle, taper one end of log.




-With leaf veiner, make a hole in large end of carrot.
-for carrot top, take small amount of green fondant and roll into a log.




-About 2/3 of the way in flatten with fondant smoother.




-Using knife, cut three slits in flattened section.



-Cut center section into a point to match two outer pieces.




-Now with a small amount of water attatch carrot top to carrot.



-Using back of knife make markings in carrot alternating on each side


Here's one way to get your kids to eat their vegetables :D



Stay tuned till next week when i show you how to make the easter egg, and a special edition of tuesday toppers (on wednesday) where i'll show you how to make the easter bunny himself.
