I had to make these! ;)
The pod is 10 cm long. If you want to make these as cupcake toppers - make them slightly smaller ;)
- mall ball tool
- dresden tool
- frilling stick tool (or a cocktail stick)
- scalpel or small knife
- brush for glue
50/50 flower paste/sugarpaste mix with CMC or plain sugarpaste with CMC:
- 18 g bright green
- 12 g green
- 1 g pink
- 8 mm ball black
- 4 mm ball light pink
Dust colours: pink, green
Roll three 6 g balls of bright green paste. Use a small ball tool to make the eye indentations.
Roll small black balls and stick them in the eye indentations. Make the mouths using the frilling stick (surprised face) or the dresden tool (smile). Stick a small amount of black paste in the mouths (smile) and smooth with the dresden tool.
Roll two 6 mm balls of pink paste. Make teardrop shapes. Flatten them. Press from the sides with your fingers to create a triangle shape. Stick both triangles on the pea's head. Use the fine side of the dresden tool to make two indentations on each triangle. Roll a 2 mm ball of flower paste and stick it in the centre of the bow.
Roll out the green paste to about 2 mm thick. Stick the peas in the middle.
Cut out an eye shape as shown in the photo.
Check if the pod is the correct size (bring the paste to the sides without applying any glue).
Next apply glue on the sides of the peas, stick the paste to the sides and pinch the ends as shown in the photo.
Trim the ends with scissors.
Dust the peas and the pod :)
