Hey everyone, it’s that time of the year again!
It’s Christmas!!! Christmas caroling, parols, simbang gabi, puto bumbong, bibingka, crema de fruta, hamon at keso, kris kringles, mint, candy canes, gifts, gingerbread houses, christmas trees, christmas lights… I can go on and on! I love Christmas!
And what is Christmas without Rudolph? This really loveable reindeer is an icon on his own. I mean, without a glowing red nose, how can Santa make sure his sleigh will drop by every house with nice kids living on it? Go go go, Rudolph! In your honor, I am showing everyone how to make your fondant version. Oh, and good luck in delivering all the gifts this year!
ps – I know, I have a feeling you’ll ask me about Santa. There is a tutorial for him, too. Very soon.
Fondant Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Tutorial
What we need:
Fondant in three shades of brown (dark, chocolate and light brown) and red fondant
Small flower fondant cutter
Brush and water to glue things together
Half-moon fondant tool
Small ball tool
Black pearl dragees
(1) Roll chocolate brown fondant and shape it into one big oval for the body and 4 small cylinders for the legs.
(2) Roll the dark fondant into a thin (but not so thin) sheet and cut out four “flowers” that will serve as Rudolph’s feet.
(3) Cut off some petals so they will look like this.
Now now now, as much as possible, we want a stable base for Rudolph. We don’t want him limping around seeing that he’s Santa’s right hand man… err.. I mean reindeer. So do that, make sure to bind all the legs together.
(4) Add the body to the feet.
(5) To make the face, roll chocolate fondant into a tear shape
(6) Use the black dragees to serve as Rudolph’s eyes and make sure to make him smile using the half moon fondant tool.
(7) And of course, don’t forget the red nose.
(8) To make his ears, roll some chocolate brown fondant into tear shapes, add some light brown fondant to it and attach it to Rudolph’s head. To make the antlers, roll some dark brown fondant into tear shapes and cut the wider end to form the antlers. Roll it to smoothen it out.
(9) Attach the antlers to Rudolph’s head as well. Using a toothpick attach Rudolph’s body to his head.
And by now, Rudolph is ready to take his righful place by Santa’s side.
Happy holidays, everyone!
