ways of doing this but this is how I made mine...
and when making the different colors wear gloves...
I use those blue surgical ones. You will use a lot of them...
make Gru's body,
at the ends, because his legs are
so skinny and then I inserted a
skinny wooden dowel!
white fondant, pull it like the candy
makers do when making taffy!
cut it to make it cleaner
portion of the body!
then you won't even see the cut mark!
use a paint brush and place a dab of water on each side of head to secure
the earswith a tooth pick make a tiny whole to make them look more real!
use a small dab of water to secure,
to make the nostrils use a tooth pick and push lightly on each side!
placed on top to make his eyes!
food coloring to make his pupil!
Now for the Minion's Like you did above,
color your fondant with yellow
make the over-all's and roll it out
and cut it into a square!
together and cutting away the excess!
dab a small drop of water on each side!
the front just under the bib!
with a tooth pick make tiny little holes to make them look like buttons!
secure with a tiny dab of water!
his eyes, secure with drop of water!
secure with a drop of water!
secure with water and place your Minion on top!
and rolled out some long pieces of
white to make the moon craters...
