Do I use fondant?
How do I make one??
Ive never made a cake topper character before.
What tools do i need to make one???
Thanks lovely people!
while moulding figures/animals, use 1/2 gumpaste & 1/2 fondant. Only fondant takes longer to dry & hence its difficult to work with, or else u can u mazipan too.
The best thing and most helpful thing to do is to get a picture of the character you are trying to model and go from there. Generally when I am doing a figurine, I use strictly gumpaste. Just because it does harden quicker and for little things on the figurine, I like it. That's just personal preferance. Anyway, after you get the pic and either the gumpaste or gumpaste/fondant mix, you just go from there. I generally will try to match the colors first. Again, that as well is just personal preferance. Make sure you have edible "glue", cornstarch or PS for your fingers so they don't stick when using really small pieces and then you just start. Hope this helps! Good luck
