  • Add CMC to fondant at ratio of 1/2 teaspoon for 1/2 kilogram fondant.
  • Add additional CMC to white fondant: fill wing mold and release by bending mold. Allow to dry.
  • Create 2 sections of arrows using yellow mold. Allow to fully dry.

Sculpting sandals:

  • Create 2 short "snakes" from yellow fondant. Flatten slightly and create circular shoe soles using knife. 
  • Glue to cake using a small amount of water.
  • Add CMC to skin colored fondant, fill mold and release by bending. Glue feet to shoe sole.

Legs:
