I am having a bit of a hard time making this 3d hello kitty cake topper. How far in advance can I make the topper? should I use fondant or gumpaste also my concern is when I go to put the topper on the cake if made to far in advance when I put the dowel through it will the fondant start to crack? the cake is for this Saturday. I would really appreciate any help. thanks.
You can make the Hello Kitty topper in advance. You can either use gumpaste or 50/50(fondant/gumpaste). And the dowel shouldn't make it crack.
Hi! I made a Hello Kitty Topper and used rice krispies treats for support and covered it with fondant with tyloose. The first day I onle made the head and the body. The second day I "dressed" her and at night she was ready! I didn't use the topper with a dowel but other figures I've made don't crack beacuse of the rice krispies treats. You can check in my pictures the Kitty figure I made, she was big and I made her 4 days before. My country has tropical weather so I guess you'll have even better results! When I'm in a rush I place my figures inside the oven with the light on, they dry so fast!
