How cute is this fondant panda bear? In this blog post, I will show you how to make a panda bear cake topper. If you haven't tried working with fondant, please try it out!

To make this cute panda, start out by coloring the fondant to your desired color. In this video I tinted some white fondant to a pink color for the tongue and paws. Once you get the desired colors, knead the fondant so it's pliable and easy to handle. Follow the video's step-by-step directions to form the different pieces of the panda bear and put it all together. I used a paint brush and some water as the glue to stick the pieces together. After everything is put together, I wanted to give the bear some texture so I used some scissors and cut into the fondant to make it look like fur. Voila, a cute panda bear made out of fondant. Leave this bear out to dry for a couple of days and it will get harder. You can store the finished product in an airtight container for several months.
