Making head and face

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today I’ll be sharing with you the technique on making a baby’s face using fondant. First, start by making a small ball.


Then roll your index finger over the centre until you get a peanut shape. This will divide the face into the forehead and chin.


Pinch below the chin to make a neck.


Use the end of a small straw to make the eyes and mouth. And make a small hole for the nose socket.


Stick a small ball for the nose. Use the end of a toothpick to make the nostril.


Glue 2 more balls for the ears. Make a dent with the same toothpick.


You can then add the hair and maybe brush some pearl dust (added with corn flour) for the cheeks.

My baby.. sleeping and smiling :)


Here’s wishing you sweet dreams and a happy week ahead..

You make this look so easy. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m pretty sure if I did that my person would look more like Mister Bill than a cute little baby. But, perhaps with your great pictures I could actually achieve a baby : )

Thanks kawan-kawan for your comment.

Joanna, my Kitchenaid is the heavy duty type. Coz I use it to make bread also (sometimes). Cost about RM2300 and I bought it at Bagus (www.bagus.com.my). Can’t remember the model.

Val, baby pram tu beli. I remember that episode. Lama dah tak tengok CSI. :)
