Take 40 gr of brown fondant and make an elongated shape and flatten it with the palm of your hand.
You can have a deeper look at this video with the complete monkey tutorial!
Stretch fondant very thin. I have used a lighter colour. Cut out a circle or oval.
Stick it to the face and with the small ball tool, make two indentations for the eyes.
Make two balls of one gram each of the lightest color. Place them on the table, and with the ball tool make another indentation in each of them.
Stick the ears to each side of the head and fill the eye sockets with two black balls of fondant.
Use the dresden tool to draw the nose and the mouth.
Legs are made with cones, so…
Make four cones of one gram each.
Make the hands, half a gram for each one.
See how to make them on the video below.
And finally, the tail, a long and thin sausage. The quantity is up to you.
And lastly, join the pieces.
