How to Make Edible Teeth Decorations Using Nuts
Using a small knife, whittle the nut meats down to the desired tooth shape. For aged, brown teeth, toast the nuts in advance and allow them to cool. For newer, whiter teeth, don’t toast the nuts.
For human teeth, make sure to include the various different shapes including molars and incisors.
Below is an example of almonds whittled to points for a shark cake.
Edible nut teeth can easily be embedded into modeling chocolate or fondant then secured with some piped melted chocolate.
The above teeth were also dusted with a little pearl dust for sheen.
