I have a friend who's getting married in August 2009. She and her husband-to-be would like to have Curious George and a girl as their cake topper. I have yet to make any 3-D figures. So I have a few questions... First, she wants to be able to keep the topper, what could I make it out of? Second, I'm not really sure that I can do this, so just in case... is there anyone who would make the topper and charge me for it? If so, how much? Thanks in advance!
Sorry. No idea, but I thought I'd give you a bump.
To keep it long term you can use polymer clay and follow the directions on baking it. Then to put it on the cake, make a little fondant circle so the figures are not touching the cake directly.
when i do figures, I get as many pictures as i can from as many different angles etc. then i basically try to break it down part by part - study the head, is it round or more like a tear drop etc and work from there. Aine2 has a great tutorial on how to sculpt a face on her website.
Thank you!! Everyone here is so nice and helpful. All of your ideas are greatly appreciated.
i think it would be so fun to have the top cake be all bananas lol
