I am looking to make a cake topper from a picture and was wondering the best way to go about it. I will attach the pic below. The only thing i can think to do is to mold it out of modeling chocolate or maybe some gumpaste? any ideas are greatly appreciated! the original plastic topper is over 70 dollars so the only way for me to get it would be to make a replica on my own.
am i crazy to try this?!?!
I think I would use gumpaste so the pieces would dry harder and be more stable.
It looks like alot of work, good luck and post pics when you're done.
Looks like a ton of work - honestly, unless you have experience w/ doing such highly detailed figures, $70 may be worth it. Good luck.
if you're going to attempt replicating that I sure hope you have some serious artistic skill... otherwise you may be best suited to purchase the piece and save yourself alot of time and headache...
i guess you're trying to cut costs...? how come this wasn't figured into the price of the cake...?
I think you should give it a try if you have the time. Good practice if nothing else. To get the details on the faces modeling chocolate is good cause it will give the extra modeling time before drying out. Good luck! can't wait to see it!
The biggest reason i was trying to avoid purchasing the finished piece is because i am making it for my friends bridal shower and it is out of the kindness of my heart (and not necessarily my bank account!)
Thanks for the tips!
