...help me out!
I want to make cupcake toppers for DS's birthday. I am going to copy these:

but use writing icing like this

I have never ever used fondant before but I think these seem doable.
I know I can make them ahead of time but I'd love some hints, such as:
How the Sam Hill do I make grey? I've read that adding black to blue is the best bet but do I need more information?
If I want them to cover the top of my cupcake do I need to set them on top of something curved or domeish? What the Sam Hill do I use to achieve this? Or is it better to flatten the cakes?
How the Sam Hill do I make the eyeballs? Is it little balls squished flat? I bought mini marshmallows to maybe just trim and attach instead. Would that work?
Is it worth doing a practice run first?
Am I crazy?
Hints and advice me up!!
