Easy way to make googgly eyes on Sesame Street characters and others

I’m in the process of making cake pops and cupcakes for my grandson who is turning 1. When it came to the eyes, I started rolling little balls of fondant, but it was difficult to make them all the same size besides being a very time consuming task when you have too many to make. So, I came up with the following solution.
1. Mix a little Tylose into your fondant, roll it into a snake shape and insert into your pearl silicone mold.
2. Once removed from your mold, allow it to set for a few minutes, and then cut each pearl individually – within minutes you have many eyes with a flat back perfect to adhere to a cake pop or cupcake topper. For Big Bird, I cut two at a time.
3. To decorate, simply use your color gels, or edible pencils .

You now have fast eyes ready to decorate your goodies! I hope this idea helps you – it certainly saved me a lot of time trying to roll each eye and never getting it exactly the same size.
