I made this Mo Willems themed cake for my daughter, Carissa, for her 8th birthday. Mo Willems is one of her favorite authors so she decided to have a Mo Willems themed party. She picked 8 different characters that she would want as part of the party [she decided 8 would be good since she was turning 8 :) ].
The characters were made out of fondant. I rolled it fairly thin and let it dry a bit. (This just made it a little easier to draw on; the marker wouldn't stick or drag so much as it would on fresh soft fondant.) Then I drew the characters with a black food coloring marker. I used a small paring knife to cut the characters out, and then I painted them with food coloring. I went over the outline with the food coloring marker on any places that needed it. I attached lollipop sticks (maybe toothpicks on some) to the backs of the characters using fondant and water.
More pictures and details to come... :)
