Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make a bride and groom out of fondant or gumpaste for the top of a wedding cake?

I've cut numbers and letters from gumpaste/fondant before, I printed mine from my word program, then printed it, rolled out my gumpaste/fondant mixture , cut out your letters from paper, lay on top of gumpaste and cut out with sharp cutter, then I've used the wooden bbq skewers to insert into them from the bottom, just make sure your fondant is thick enough to insert them into before cutting, I then place them on wax paper and let air dry for several days, I rotate them daily front to back, and then place excess skewer into cake. Hope that helps

You can make them out of gumpaste I know there are tutorials out there to explain it in depth. I never used a tutorial for my figurines. I just made each part of the person separately and attached it together with a little water. When attaching the head I used a toothpick. I am not a pro by any means but my figurines are pretty good using that method. Have never had a problem before. HTH icon_smile.gif

SORRY!!! Ignore my previous post, I thought you were referencing on how to make initial toppers not actual bride and grooms, LOL!!! But I have watched numerous ones on youtube on figures, you may try there.

Have you done any modeling with fondant or gumpaste? Polymer Clay books are helpful. I have one titled "How to Make Clay Characters" by Maureen Carlson. It is very good and very helpful. Also Lorraine McKay has classes to teach how to model a Bride and Groom. She has online tutorials, but I'm not sure if she has one specifically for B&G.
