How do i make fondant lettuce?

Do you have any tips on how to make lettuce out of fondant.

From the editor:

Hi Kennesha,

Here's a simple technique for fondant lettuce:

1. Roll out green fondant until it's very thin.
2. use a pizza cutter or small sharp knife to cut a shape like an oval with one narrow end cut off.
3. Use a large ball tool to frill the rounded end of the lettuce leaf. To do this gently old the flat end of the leaf with one hand and rub the ball tool over the outer edge of the rounded end. This will stretch the fondant on that edge, forming a frill.
4. You now have one leaf of lettuce.

Repeat these steps for each lettuce leaf.

Good luck.
