Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include it will take for head made out of the dough to dry ("set").
  • 2
    You 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.
  • 3
    Create cow's head using White, Brown and Red as shown or as desired.
  • 4
    Mold the body and legs using Brown and White. Shape hooves using Black and attach to the legs. Use Gum Paste Sticks to support the project where the head will come together with the body. 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.
  • 5
    Assemble the cow. Attach a collar with Red and a bell for the collar with Yellow.
  • 6
    Support the head with a small paper cup and let dry ("set") for 12 hours.
