- Time:1 hour
1Project time does not include it will take for head made out of the dough to dry ("set").
2You may find it helpful to watch the "Hints on Assembling 3D Characters" video that is available on this page before beginning this project. There are also other videos on using Wilton Shape-N-Amaze Edible Dough available on A.C. Moore's YouTube channel that you may find useful.
3Mix amounts of Black and White until you get a desired shade of Gray. Mold head, ears and trunk using the Gray. Make eyes and eyelashes with Black.
4Use Gum Paste Sticks to support the dog where the head and body will come together. To make a Gum Paste Stick, press a small amount of White fondant into the smallest square available on the Measure-N-Shape Sizing Tray. Then remove it and shape it into a ball with your hands. Once you have done this, slowly roll it into the approximate length and width of a toothpick.
5Make legs out of Gray.
6Attach head to body, then attach legs. Attach other body parts if you have not already done so.
7Support head with cup. Allow to dry ("set") 12 hours.
