|Pumpkins made from fondant|
An easy way to make these cute decorative pumpkins is to use fondant. The one I used is from Wilton.
Fondant can be a little hard so to soften it just put a piece into the microwave oven for a few seconds. Only work with a small amount at a time so that it stays soft.
Also use Wilton colors to make the shade you need. Knead in the coloring – don’t be surprised that this takes a few minutes to fully incorporate the color paste.
The pumpkin stems are pieces of clove. I brushed on orange and green powdered coloring which can be found at Sugarcraft baking supplies or other such stores.
This is a great activity for kids — just think of all of the other fruit & vegetables you can make!!
Enjoy your decorating 🙂
