Push the front of a teaspoon into the pink ball to get the mouth. If necessary, make two small holes in the corners of the mouth.

  • Shape a drop shape from a piece of Sugar Paste Pastel Green, flatten it a bit and give a grain with a knife. Glue the leaf next to the stalk on top of the apple. With the FunCakes Sparkle Dust and the small brush from the set, give the apple a blush. It is best to wait until the apple is reasonably dry.
