The photo above presents three stages of preparing the right shape of the hoofs.
- Use 2 g of black flower paste to roll two 1 g balls.
- Flatten each ball on one side by pressing it with your finger (see the photo above).
- Sharpen the edge of the hoof - hold the hoof between your thumb and the index finger of your left hand and rotate it around its axis with the other hand. Please note: the left-handed cake decorators will probably prefer using the right hand to hold the hoof and the right one to rotate it. Check whether the diameter of the hoof fits the bottom part of the front leg by bringing together those two shapes. Make only two hoofs for now, so that the other two don’t dry before the hind legs are made.
