DIY // How To Make Whimsical Fondant Elf Hats

ELF HAT

Hi everyone! Brittany from Edible Details here!

It’s been a long time since I was last here! With a new baby on board this year (AKA: Newest little assistant at Edible Details!), we’ve  gone through a lot of changes, and I’m finally back on track and ready to crank up the monthly tutorials here at BFFF. How exciting to get to start back up with a Christmas one!

This is my all-time favorite time of the year. The whole month of December just seems to hold a little bit of winter magic that, combined with a lot of Christmas music, glitter and hot cocoa, it’s enough to keep me in the Christmas spirit for the whole month! We all need a little whimsy to our Christmas, and if it’s edible then it’s all the better right? So I’m excited to share my  “Whimsical Fondant Elf Hat”  tutorial – take your own spin on it, have fun and if you care to share pictures of how yours turn out, I would love to see them!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Cut a 1 1/4″ x 6″ strip of bright red fondant. Using a 1 x 1″ square cutter, cut out triangles across one side of the strip. To ensure an even cut, cut only up to the 2 corners of the square on the cutter.

STEP 4:

Using a paint brush and water, wet the tip of the hat and the tip of each point on the rim. Roll out green fondant balls to add to each point. Press with care to keep from falling off.
