Ohh look at the lovely sleeping deer <3
I got a little old book to make figures out of fimo.
And I thought it was perfect to try the little deer on a cupcake.
You can use white fondant (sugar paste/gum paster I guess?) and colour it yourself, or buy pre-cloured stuff.

As you're making the deer, but the fondant doesnt stick to each other you can wet it with a bit of water to make it stick better.

PS: sorry for the crappy illustrations, Paint isn't my best friend and I forgot to take pics.

    To make the ear you cut out 2 oval shapes of the red-brown/pink and white fondant.
    Each shape a bit smaller then the one before. (From red brown to pink to white).
