Create Your Jack-O-Lantern’s “Indents”
To make sure that your Jack-O-Lantern looks like a Jack-O-Lantern pail, and not a big orange ball, you’ll need to add indents to the sides. Remember, this pumpkin is not from the patch, so we’ll need to make it look manufactured! To make these indents, use a veining tool and your fabric measuring tape. Use the measuring tape to measure around and make sure that these indents are evenly spaced. Then, placing your measuring tape along the sides where your indents should be, run your veining tool along the tape, from up to down consistently.
Note: if you feel the need to fill in any thin areas or patch some cracks, create a fondant paste using leftover fondant and some water! For more information on how to utilities your fondant paste you can watch here.
