Hey there!!

I need to make small baby blocks to sit on top of my cake. I have never worked with gum paste. So would fondant work? If so how do i go about it?

Thanks for the help

I just made fondant blocks. Depending on the size, I used my middle sized square cutter (from Michaels) stuffed that block with fondant and leveled with a knife and pushed the fondant out from the backside. Looked great!

I made mine out of rct then put a little bc and covered them with a little fondant. You can see them in my cake pics.

Here are some cakes I've done where I made little (2"x2" maybe) blocks out of rice krispie treats (like above poster) and covered with fondant. Quick and easy and they're not as heavy as they would be if you use all fondant for this sized block.

fondant will work it will just take alot longer to dry, be carefull they doent fall or squish while they are drying, gumpaste will be more trusted to keep its proper shape
