Step one: Making the shell
Take your lighter shade of brown and give it a little knead to make it pliable. Next make
a small well in the paste and sprinkle in some Tylo powder. Knead into the paste until
Step 3: Making the flippers
Take another piece of your light green fondant and knead it to make it pliable. As with
the head, knead a little Tylo powder in. You only need a small bit. Roll a sausage shape by
making a ball and then rolling it on your mat. It doesn’t matter how long the sausage is but
you should aim to get it an equal thickness. Using your modelling knife, cut the sausage into
4 equal sections. This will ensure your flippers are all the same size. Once you have your 4
equal sections, roll each one into a ball.
Step 4: Making the shell trim
Take a little of your lighter brown fondant and knead it to make it pliable. There is no
need to add Tylo power to this piece. Roll your brown fondant into a ball and then using
your icing smoother, roll the fondant into a long, thin sausage/worm shape.
Step 5: making the face detail
Take a tiny piece of white fondant. There is no need to knead it or add Tylo powder. Roll
it into a tiny ball and then using your cutting tool, cut it in half to make 2 equal pieces.
Step 6: Adding the final touches.
Take your darker shade of green and pull of 5 tiny pieces. Roll each piece into a tiny ball.
There is no need to knead or add Tylo powder at this stage.
