Fondant animals on cookies:  I learned how to handle fondant from @Kim Damon.

Since Kim makes animals on cookies, I decided to make animals, too.  Since 2018 is Year of the Dog, these are Daddy dog, Mommy dog and their puppies.  In addition to that, I tried to use icing as little as possible for this project. 

Thanks to Kim, I got a chance to use fondant on cookies.  To tell the truth, I wanted to make mischievous puppies but they came out very well-behaved ones.  Well, nothing is easy for the first time.

The mats where puppies are on are made with colored fondant and @SugarVeil Icing mat.  I have heard from @Manu, SugarVeil’s mats can be used for fondant, too.  So I tried this to emboss the design.   

Again, thank you, Kim, I was afraid that nobody was going to do this challenge together with me. 

These are my fondant puppies

Hi @Kim Damon

It took long time for me to make those dogs, I kneaded them again and again, then the fondant got dry.

There is a way to make it soft again with a tiny bit of butter or crisco. I imagine that was pretty frustrating. Could be old (in the store to long) or too much Tylos powder (if you used that)? But you would never know there was a struggle by how cute they turned out!

Oh butter!, thank you, Kim.  This is really something new to me.

Such an adorable set, Ryoko! These pups are so cute! To make 3D figures out of fondant is not easy to do, well done!

Zara, it is soooo right to make 3D figures is really difficult.  I really need to look at things carefully.

What a cute set Ryoko! And yes they remind me Kim’s cookie style! 

Something new to me, isn't it?  While I was making them, I was just wondering "Why?" and "How?" but now I think it was fun.   Those puppies make me smile.  

Oh my goodness!  These puppies are ADORABLE!!! I can't believe this is the first time you have used fondant!  @Kim Damon must be one fabulous teacher! I love how each puppy has it's own little personality, and the use of the textured fondant bases are a terrific addition. Most of all, I am so glad that you and Kim got to connect and collaborate! Clearly, it was a fruitful cookie connection!
