Easy Fondant Pumpkin Tutorial

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tube of orange fondant
  • 1 tube of green cake frosting
  • 1 disposable piping bag fitted with a number 66 tip
  • 1 cutting board 
  • 1 wooden skewer

Instructions

  1. Begin by rolling a small 1/3 oz piece of orange fondant into a ball. Dust your work surface with powdered sugar/corn-starch to prevent the fondant from sticking.
  2. Place the fondant ball onto the cutting board.
  3. Lightly push the fondant ball down into a thick disk.
  4. Using the pointy side of the skewer, make an indent in the center of the fondant ball.
  5. Using the wooden skewer, take the rounded end of the skewer and using the rolling motion from bottom to top make 4 indents like an X.
  6. Repeat step to make 4 more indents in between the first 4 indents.
  7. Squeeze the icing into the disposable bag and pipe a leaf onto the top of the pumpkin.
  8. Set aside to dry for at least one hour.
