Thank Whooo Fondant Owl Tutorial

Owls continue to be extremely popular in many parties and decor these days! For the Fall issue of The Party Dress Magazine, I made a super simple and easy-to-follow tutorial to make these little metallic fondant owls to dress up your Thanksgiving desserts! Or follow the steps and simply change the colors and shimmer color to match any theme!

Supplies needed:
*yellow fondant
*rolling pin
*oval, teardrop and flower cutters
*round tip {in this case, Wilton tip 12}
*modeling stick
*food safe brush and water
*gold shimmer food color spray {Wilton Gold Color Mist used here}

Step 1: Roll some yellow fondant into a ball and shape tips of owl ears with fingers.

Step 2: Roll out more yellow fondant flat with the rolling pin and use the cutters to cut out the necessary shapes {don’t forget to cut 2x flower shape for eyes and 2x teardrop shape for wings}.

Step 3: Shape the small circle into a ball and then use your fingers to make a tip for the owl nose.

Step 4: Utilize the modeling stick to make holes in the eyes. With the round tip angled at 45*, make indentations in the large oval for a feather pattern.

Step 5: With the food safe brush dipped in water, glue all the fondant pieces to the three-dimensional owl figure.

Step 6: Cover your working surface and spray the fondant owl with the shimmer food color spray and let it dry!

I just want to take a minute and thank whooo?! Thank YOU for all the endless and incredible support! I am truly so very thankful! Wishing you and your family the happiest of Thanksgivings! ♥
