Plants vs Zombie Cake Tutorial Step 2 - Garlic

Welcome to the Plants Vs Zombies Garlic tutorial! To me this is the fun part of the cake. Making food that looks like games and things. This tutorial will go over the garlic from the game. I think it was my favorite one!!

fondant tools
sharp knife
food color

Aaaawww What a cute crazy looking thang! 

Let's get started on him. We only made two of these but you can make as many as you like.

1. Color some fondant a very light tan color. You can see in the picture above this one the white and tan colors. That will give you a little idea of what the color should be. Roll a small amount into a tear drop shape and flatten the bottom just a little. You can make it larger if you want. This size was just cute to us. :)

2. With a sharp knife cut the pointed end of the tear drop and turn on the side and do it again. You will end up with 4 points.

3. Separate the points. Just use the knife or fondant tool to gently push them apart.

 4. To make the ends a little more slender and more of a point gently roll each end between two fingers. This will also smooth out the edges that were cut giving it a cleaner more finished look.

5. Here is what they should look like. Its ok if they are a little different. It all works in the end. :)

6. Use the back of your knife or fondant tool to make "marks" from each cut to the bottom of the garlic.

7. Now use the knife to cut a slit for a mouth. It just wont be as cute without it. How can they eat the zombies without a mouth. lol

8. Roll out a small amount of white fondant very thinly. This will be used for the teeth and eyes. Cut out tiny squares for the teeth. Roll tiny balls for the eyes and flatten a little before attaching.

9. With a small amount of water glue the teeth into the mouth. I didn't get pics of the eyes but also glue the eyes into place with the water.

10. Here is what you get. Cute right??? Now use a food marker and make a small dot in the center of the eyes. And you have finished.

Not bad right?? I just love these guys!! I haven't played the game but I may have to give it a try now. Just let me know if you have any questions. I am happy to help!!!
