4. Here’s what you need to make the faces of the sheep.

- Some pale brown fondant.

- White fondant or gum paste for the eyes.

- Black fondant for the eyes.

- Basic modelling tools- a ball tool, a pencil tool and a knife tool. You can use the back of a paint brush and a knife if you don’t have these tools.

7. Use the pencil tool, or the middle of a paint brush to make a dent in the middle of the oblong. Use the ball tool or the back of a paint brush to make indentations for the eyes.
Take two little balls of white fondant and flatten them into the marked indentation .Push them into place, then attach the black eyes with a tiny smidgen of water. With the knife tool make a shallow Y. Deepen the ends of the Y with the pencil tool or a toothpick. These are the nostrils.
