Make pig's tail first.
Form a small worm of fondant around a toothpick and let it stay there until
you attach it to the finished pig as the last step.

My first time sculpting these little pigs looks like I made a bit of a sloppy mess!
On the board in these photos is powdered sugar. I have found cornstarch is much
better to work with, less sticky.

Beware of humid conditions- your fondant could melt! The only thing you can do when this happens
is dehumidify the air. (Do NOT place fondant sculptures into the refrigerator or freezer.)
It is best not to handle your fondant sculptures if they become damp from the humidity. They are
very sticky and soft in this state and you could ruin your sculpture.

Tips for using fondant:

1. It is perfectly OK to use store bought fondant. I love Wilton's. I've only used Wilton's, and I've
never made my own fondant. You can find it at Walmart in the Wedding Supply section ($6.50)
or a craft store (the craft stores
usually charge more for the same product.) You can even order fondant online. I've never found fondant at Target but I
wish they would carry it! I ONLY go to Walmart for the Wilton's supplies.
2. You don't have to buy the special fondant tools. I use 2 smooth and rounded chopsticks that I bought in the mall,
a small paring knife, (clean) X-ACTO knife, toothpicks, rolling pin, regular cutting board and a small bowl of water.
You can use anything that works for you (and is food safe, of course.)
3. A light touch of water works like glue.
4. Use cornstarch to dust your board and hands to keep from sticking.
5. If you don't have cornstarch on hand you can use powdered sugar.
6. Let your fondant sculptures dry on wax or parchment paper.
7. After you have tinted a portion of fondant, separate the amount you need at the moment
and wrap the rest of it in plastic wrap so it does not dry out while you work.
8. Tint your fondant with gel colours. I use Wilton's but any brand will do.
9. After washing your hands dry them using a paper towel so you do not transfer lint or hair to the fondant. Keep
several paper towels on hand and within reach of your work space.
10. If your fondant has dried, rehydrate it by adding a few drops of water and kneading it.
11. Fondant is plentiful and forgiving, don't be nervous!

12. Do not refrigerate or freeze fondant or fondant sculptures. This will cause condensation which
will cause the fondant to melt.
13. If your gel colors dry out, add a few drops of Wilton's Glycerin
and mix well.
