How to Make a Fondant Horse

IMG_9813

The Lunar new year is almost over, and this year was an especially punny one with lots of horsing around since it is the year of the horse, according to the Chinese Zodiac. I was asked to make a cake last week with the following brief… it had to contain the elements of childhood memories, Chinese new year, a horse and be candy-coloured! So this is what I came up with.

I love how I get to creatively combine taste, design and a client’s brief all into one edible art piece.

When I first decided to make a fondant horse, I had no idea how. So I googled it and was surprised that there weren’t many fondant horse tutorials out there. Thankfully, I found one fondant horse instructional on another blog and it was cute! So I decided to try it out. I was so happy with the results that I decided to make a youtube video out of it. If a picture paints a thousand words, a video says a million and hopefully demonstrates the steps you need to take to make this cute fondant horse.

Tools and materials Needed:

Brown fondant
White fondant
Rolling pin
Ball tool
Knife tool
Toothpicks
Brush and water/alcohol
Edible black marker

Do read my article on how to handle fondant before attempting to model this horse, especially if you live in hot and humid Singapore. We live in the WORST possible climate for fondant 😦 But there are ways to get around it successfully! Good luck and have a horse-perous new year!!!
