Hi all cake lovers icon_biggrin.gif

I am making a birthday cake for a 50th Birthday. They want me to make a pair of teeth (false teeth) to put on the top of the cake.

Here is an example of what it could look like:

I only have pictures as reference, I can't find any tutorial on how to make teeth. Can anybody help me? How can i make them?
This is only my 3trd cake.

I couldnt look at your picture. I've only made teeth using gum. Ok it was for a shark not a person! but couldn't you adapt 'chiclet' type gum and a pinky fondant to make a denture? They will sure have fresh breath! Good luck!

I would suggest searching the CC Gallery - I know I have seen lots of sets of teeth for retirement/Over the Hill cakes, etc.

Here I did just a general search for "teeth" in all albums - hopefully this helps you:

I made teeth on my Halloween skull cake. They take a lot of time and patience to get just right but using fondant /gum paste blend I made the big front teeth separate and attached, for the smaller back teeth I carved from the "gums" If I had had access to molding clay I would have stuck it in my own mouth to make a mold haha! They were a beast but turned out great. Go for it! Maybe somebody else knows of a mold somewhere. hth

how did you end up making the teeth? I'm making a birthday cake for my brother and I want it to have "fangs." Just wondering what the best approach would be. icon_smile.gif Thank you!!
