I wanted to add something to the roof of my shack, and I though a witch would be a nice touch. Again, just like the cattails, I had never done one before. I’ve pretty much stayed away from fondant, but I really didn’t have a choice! I started with making her body out of a rice crispy treat. I then used wire to form her legs and arms.
I covered her legs in black fondant, just using my hands to mold them and the shoes. I then rolled out orange fondant for her dress. I use some royal icing on top of the rice crispy to help the fondant stick. I also took her arm wire out before putting on the fondant, but then replaced it after, and then added the orange fondant for her arms.
I added her head using fondant that I had made by adding copper color to the white fondant. Once it was rolled into a ball, I added impressions for her eyes and mouth, and added a nose. I also added her hands.
