Peter Rabbit Fondant Figurines

February 5, 2015

This week I created some fondant figurines from the book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. I made Peter Rabbit, 3 of his siblings and vegetables for the garden. The decor is for an 8 inch round cake and most the figurines will be on top of the cake. I tried to make Peter and his family look like the illustrations from the book.

In this post I wanted to share a little of how I made the figurines.

First, I shaped the bodies out of Rice Krispies Treats. Usually, I only use RKT for larger figurines. The bunnies were small but this time I wanted to make the bodies out of RKT so they were more stable.

I attached ivory fondant to the body and scored it with a wilton line tool to make it look like fur.

I painted the fur with vodka and food gel…the colors were ivory and warm brown. I always test it out on a strip of fondant before it goes on the real thing.

This is what the fur looks like with diluted paint and vodka.

Here’s all the little guys covered in fondant and ready to be painted and decorated.

Peter’s siblings were wearing red capes. I made the little arms first and then covered them halfway with the strip of red fondant for the cape.

Sorry I didn’t give you process of the rabbit’s heads, I was in a hurry. I created the rabbit ears first and let them dry for a couple of hours. This was so they would stick in the fondant head and stand by themselves. I painted the heads to match the bodies and all the rabbits have a different look to them.

These are the little veggies that I made for the garden….Pumpkins, lettuce, onions, radish, potatoes and carrots. These take a little longer than you think because they are so small.

I hope you enjoyed the info about Peter Rabbit!
