Making the body
Using yellow fondant, make small round ball shapes. The number of shapes should equal to the age of the child. Exemple: if the child will be 4 years old you would make 4 yellow balls.
Create a crease in the middle of each yellow balls by inserting any color candle you want in the middle of each and one of them. Then, pull the candle out and brush a small amount of water in each creases by using a clean brush. (water and fondant will create glue) Once water brushed in to each vrease, re insert your candle so that it sticks with your fondant.
Using green fondant, glue 2 small round pièces on each side of the shape created on step 2.
