To make these I used Marshmallow Fondant (for my favorite recipe go HERE) for everything except the black. It is impossible to color fondant black with gel paste (it becomes a gooey mess!) so I use Duff Goldman by Gartner Studios Fondant, Black, 2-Pounds because it has a nice flavor.
These look so cute and while they were a little time consuming, so easy to make. I think coloring the fondant took the most time! I used a circle cookie cutter for all the heads and then smaller circles for the base of the cats noses. For the dogs I used a small heart cutter for the nose base and then just molded it so they all looked a little different. It would be yummy to use modeling chocolate for these toppers too!
