Now I'm going to show you how to make a cut little sheep. I'm going to take some white fondant. Put it in some cornstarch so it's not too sticky. I'm going to roll it into a ball, and this is going to be his body. Just roll it in a ball, and then take it. Flatten it out just a little bit. And then I'm going to take a piping tip that has a little circle at the top, and I'm just going to make his little body with some texture. Just go all around his body like that. And then I'm going to set his body aside. Now what I'm going to do is take some black fondant, which you can buy in the store. I probably wouldn't make it, because it would take forever. And then I'm just going to take it, and I'm going to roll it into a ball for his head. And then what I'm going to do is make his little mouth.

And I'm just going to take the end and just pinch it a little bit so his head comes our a little more. He has a little bit of a wider mouth like that. And then I'm going to take a tool with a nice tip at the end, and I'm going to make his little nose. And then I'm going to take another small ball tool, and I'm going to make some dents if for his eyes. And now I'm going to pull out at the side for his ears and just flatten them. Do the same thing to other side, and just flatten it. And then I'm going to put him to the side. I'm going to take his body back and then take some more black fondant, and I'm going to make his little feet. So we're just going take that. We're going to take a little piece. Make little ball size feet.

We're going to make four of them. And then with our water, which is our glue, we're going to put it at each corner of his body. And then I'm going to take it and place it on there and flatten it out a little bit and do that to each side of his body like that. Then I'm going to take his head back, and we're going to attach his eyes, which we're going to use little white pearls for his eyes. And just put some water in the dents we made previously and add the pearls to his face. And then what we're going to do is we're going to put some water at the top, and we're going to attach his head. And you're going to want to let that dry overnight so that when you go to decorate your cake he'll be nice and upright and ready for you to decorate. And this is how you make a sheep.
