I have tried to make animals and baby figures from fondant and marzipan but can't get the right shape.

I would be thrilled if someone could give me guidelines on how to perfect this.

Hi Shahida,

It can be tricky trying to learn the make characters etc. from fondant. There is a great book , called How to Make Clay Characters, about modeling polymer clay figures that is also very useful for making fondant figures. Any of the other titles by Maureen Carlson would also be very useful.
