How to Make Emmet Figurine Topper from Lego Movie

Emmet figurine topper

Since the Lego Movie came out, the main character “Emmet” has become a hit.  Here is how you make him out of fondant.

Here is what I used:

Fondant (orange, blue, yellow and brown)
edible glue
rolling pin
Cel-Stick
black edible marker
Zacto knife
tooth picks
Bubble tea fat straw
round #10 tip

Step 1:

Roll out two equal sized balls with orange fondant.  About an inch thick.  Using the rolling pin roll them out to a half inch thick. Using the knife cut into rectangles about 1.5x 2 inches.  The second rectangle cut the sides on a diagonal as show below. Then make a shallow cut across the bottom, as shown below. 

On the other rectangle, using the knife make a shallow cut to form the definition of the feet.  Then cut 2/3 of the way up to make the legs. Then place a toothpick through the legs and sticking out.  Add edible glue and place the top on top.

Step 3:

Roll out the yellow fondant.  Using the large straw cut out two circles.  Using the #10 tip, cut each circle as shown below.  Then using your fingers shape the hands. Using the edible glue, attach the hands to the arms.
