When I was asked about a week ago if I could do a portrait in fondant (specifically of Cosette from Les Miserables), my initial response was "No"…but only because I'd never thought about how to do such a thing before. The most elaborate branded character I'd ever created in fondant before was the Monster High skull logo, which is like comparing a stick figure with the Mona Lisa. Here's the plan of attack I came up with: First, I did a Google image search for the Les Miserables image of Cosette, and I used InDesign to make it the size I had in mind:
Then, I took it into PhotoShop,elevated the contrast, and printed out a few copies. I cut the image out, making sure to keep the outline fairly minimalist (any small bits would be candidates for breakage).fondant I'd need.
