3. Using edible glue, stick the black pupils centrally on top of the white eyes. Once you have cut out your fondant shapes, leave them to dry for 2–3 hours so they are easier to handle.

5. When piping, use smooth circular motions and lift the nozzle upwards as you complete the swirl. This ensures perky poops.
