Fondant baby bootie Tutorial

Need to jazz up some cupcakes or cake topper for a special little baby? Why not make some easy baby bootie’s to add to your creation.

What you will need-

  • Fondant (a colour for your booties and a colour for your laces)
  • Balling tools
  • Cornflour
  • Knife

 Start by having a clean workspace and having all your tools at reach. Remember to always have your fondant covered so it doesn’t dry out. If needed dust a bit of corn flour down so the fondant doesn’t stick.

Start by kneading your fondant to soften it up a bit.IMG_9005

Roll your fondant into two even size balls. These will be the bottom of your shoes. Then with extra fondant roll another two balls that are about 1/4 of the size of the bottom of your shoe. These will be the top of your booties.(in this tutorial i am making small booties for cupcakes)

Once you have your two, pinch what will be the back of your booties so that they give the shape of a foot.

 

With your balling tool, using the bigger end, press into the back of your shoe. Then with a paint brush, dab a bit of water and place your small ball on top of your balling tool mark.

Switching the end of your balling tool around, mark the top of your booties. Leave aside to dry.

Now with your white fondant roll out into a long sausage to the size you want your lace’s.

Folding onside over to the left, and the other to the right until you get your bow, cut away excess.

Using your brush dab just a little bit of water onto the front of your booties and place your bow on front. Leave to dry.

And there you have it, your little booties. So easy, simple and cute!
