Personalize Your Emoji’s Face
Decorate your emoji cake to look like YOU! Cut the details out of your template, or create your own features by hand. Roll out your skin-toned fondant about ¼ of an inch thick and use the circle cutter of your choice to cut out a nose. (I used anoval cutter instead, because I thought it looked closer to my own nose.) Roll out white, brown, black and red fondant as thin as possible. Use your template and a paring knife to cut almond shaped eyes from the white. Next, cut out irises and pupils from the brown and black using your round piping tips. (I even added a small white dot using my smallest piping tip so it looks like there’s a glint in my eye!) Cut the eyebrows out of the same brown fondant using the template. Finally, take a bit of your leftover red fondant (from your YouTube cake) and knead with a bit of white fondant until you create your favourite lip shade. Roll out the fondant and cut in a lip shape using a sharp paring knife. Place your fondant facial features on your emoji cake by brushing on a bit of water.
Note: Feel free to replace the colour of fondant if you want to give your emoji different-coloured eyes or lips!
