Roll out the gumpaste real thin. Press the cat cutter in the gumpaste   and wiggle to ensure you get a clean shape out. Run your finger along the edge of the whole thing to smooth out the edges even more. Now repeat this process using either a circle cutter or a cup/glass. Let the gumpaste dry for at least 4 hours so it can get stiff.

Now just paint the cat and the moon. Let dry.

 

Step 3: How to make the fence (optional)

Paint a few fettuccine  noodles brown. Use scissors to cut about 2 ½ inches long. It doesn’t have to be straight ,the idea is for it to look a little like a rundown fence. Lay out your slats. Cut your crossbar. Add piping gel all along the crossbar ,then lay it on top of the slats and don’t touch it for at least 24 hours.

OMG!! that is soo cool!!!
