Since my Angry Bird cake, I have been obsessed with fondant! I decided to make some cute fondant owl pops using fondant & dum-dum suckers! These make the cutest valentines day gift for your child's teacher!
Fondant (I used white & pre-colored fondant by Wilton's)..got them both at WalMart for under $10 each
food coloring (opt)
1. Mix the white & pre-colored red fondant together to get the color pink you want!
2. Roll your fondant in a ball, approx 1.5" in diameter. Sit it on top of the sucker and push down, covering the sucker. Doing it this way, you will have no crease marks!
3. Shape the fondant in an oblong shape & give your owl some pointy ears!
4. To make some wings, roll your fondant into a ball & use a toothpick to make a "c". Pinch the "c" and shape it into wings. Attach your wings (and ALL fondant peices with a TINY dab of water...don't use too much or you will get a sticky, runny mess!!!) to the body.
5. Now comes the fun part!!! Decorate your owl!!! Use different colors & shades of fondant to make your owl cute! Be creative!! I used different shades of pink (by adding white & red together) and green (added some white & a tiny bit of yellow to the pre-colored green to achieve this color green). I couldn't help myself...I added a lil pink heart to the owl's behind! :)
I wrapped up the owl in a cello bag, added a tag "Hoo loves you?" and attached it with some green ribbon!
Hoo....wouldn't want to get an owl pop like this?!?!?!
