Many people have asked me how did I make this fondant lion. I will now share some photos of that process with you.
Starting with white fondant, I used several food colourings to create three different colours.
Then, I just let my imagination run wild and started modelling all body parts.
For the lion’s mane I tested a couple of different formats, trying to decide what worked better with the tiny ears.
The image below shows the almost finished look of the assembled lion. I changed the mane meanwhile, though.
The very last details I added were the dark blue royal icing eyes and the tip of the tail. See the finished lion here.
