  6. For the nose – roll a very small piece of the pink fondant; dampen the bottom and position between the two cheeks; let dry.

  9. For the hands : •Roll 2 pea-size pieces of the white fondant into balls; slightly flatten and make 3 small incisions to create the fingers. Lightly dampen the bottom of the hand where it will attached to the arm, and carefully press onto the arm; let dry.
