Simple and cute baby cake topper tutorial


This was an cute "Welcome baby" cake and I'll share this tutorial with you. It's sooo simple and fast, but so cute!

First, make baby's head.


Than, using fondant tools, make baby's smile and sleeping eyes.




Add little nose


Make body. You don't have to work on details, we will put blanket over it.


Attach head.


Make arms and glue them on baby's body.






For blanket, roll pink fondant and cut the piece big enough to cover the baby.

 

Then, make stitches using ruler and this have-no-idea-what-it's-called tool. I have it for sewing too.




Make small flowers, and put them on blanket.






I had this small silver pearls, so I've used them ,but you can make some out of fondant or gumpaste.



For the end make one lock of hair and glue it on baby's head. (I've made this cute blond lock, then had to change it in black)



 And here it is - really fast and simple adorable baby topper!

Frozen - Princess Anna gumpaste figure tutorial



Finally I got some time to put this tutorial together. After my Olaf tutorial, here is princess Anna gumpaste figure tutorial.

I'll show you how I did this with my face mold. It's not the best mold 'cause it's too shallow, and faces comes out flat so I have to work on them to make them look better.






I always make several heads, work and practice on all of them and at the end choose one I like the most. Others I save for next time.


For Anna I chose this two heads, added eyes and using a thin brush draw a mouth.


Then, I added pupils, drew eyelashes. I've decided to go with this head.


I also drew freckles and eyebrows.



And the head is done.

Make the torso using blue gumpaste, just like her shirt.




For bottom, I've used some leftovers of gumpaste, and mixed them. For both Anna and Elsa  I've tried to shape them to get hips, so the skirt and dress look nice, but to be stable enough. Something like this...



For skirt - cut the dark blue circle (doesn't have to be precise).



Put it over the bottom part, and shape it into Anna's skirt.




Glue the torso.


Roll a piece of black gumpaste.


I used to sew, so I always tailor clothes for my figures :)









Use some gold dust mixed with alcohol to colour the edges.


Then, just glue the head.



Now, make arms.






And hands






It's time for cloak. Just measure the length and cut this shape.



Than add collar



Now, the hair.
First, add some gumpaste on the back of the head, and shape it so it doesn't look flat.



Make the braids.







Don't forget to add one white lock of hair.







Make locks of hair in different sizes.







And glue them on head.







See that girl next to Anna? There will be an Elsa figure tutorial soon!
