Sugarpaste (with added CMC*):
white - 92 g
black - 27 g
red - 1g
black - 5 mm ball -
white - 1 g ball
* CMC – keep on adding it to the sugarpaste gradually until the paste gets thicker (but you can still roll a smooth ball). The CMC makes the sugarpaste hold its shape well (the parts won't sink). I add more to the body and head than to the rest of the body parts. Add the CMC shortly before forming the parts.
Roll a 30 g ball of white sugarpaste. Form a teardrop shape. Flatten the top slightly. Apply a little amount of glue on a cocktail stick and insert it into the body in rotary motion, all the way down. If the body loses its shape during inserting – reshape it. Use a 9 mm ball tool to make an indentation at the back of the body for the tail.
