Let’s make a teddy bear without special tools using only a drinking straw, cocktail stick, a piece of spaghetti and a knife. We need coloured fondant or marzipan in your chosen colour. We can make a pink teddy for a girl, a baby blue for a boy or a brown for everyone. I haven’t used edible glue, marzipan sticks perfectly without it and you can use a tiny amount of water to stick the fondant together.
Roll a long sausage and cut into two for the arms.
Roll a thicker sausage and cut into two for the legs.
Form paws at the end of the legs with your fingers.
We need two small black balls for the eyes and a bigger one for the nose.
Stick the body and the head parts together.
If the fondant doesn’t stick, put a tiny amount of water on it.
Place a piece of spaghetti into the body and put the head on.
Mark the toes and fingers with the cocktail stick.
Using the drinking straw mark the mouth. For this you have to snip a bit off from one end of the straw so that it looks like a “U” shape. Make two marks with the straw next to each other to get the bearish mouth look.
Make indents on the body with the spaghetti so it looks like stitches.
We can dress up our bear with a little heart and bow to look like a girl.
