Sugarveil Shaun the sheep

I made this for my adorable little grandsons 2nd birthday. I wanted the wool to look a little more fluffy looking than just textured fondant so ended up having my first go with sugarveil. I made the mix and put it on the sheep one at a time, and held my hair dryer over it on the cool setting and picked and picked at it with a toothpick, when it started drying it came out with this lovely wool look. (but keep drying until it is completely dry or it will smooth back out) It was time consuming but definitely worth the effort (photos don’t really show the texture)
Needless to say Zane being a Shaun fan loved his cake :)
Had a ball stacking the three sheep on top of each other, and a huge special thanks to Pauline of Pauline bakes the cake! for her assistance :)
