hello everyone, this is my first post . I was wondering if anyone can help me. I have a ballerina cake to do and I'm clueless on how to do a fondant ballerina. Or even slippers. I've done a lot of fondant work but I'm not a pro at fondant sculpting. If anyone can pleaseeee help that would ve great. Thank you
I'm probably not the best person to give an answer but just my take on the thought. I would get a mold of the slippers and use gumpaste to fill the cavity. Allow it to dry. If you want them to stand up as in a cake topper, attach a dowel rod, straw or lollipop stick to them from the bottom.
For the ballerina, I would copy an image of one onto a frosting sheet, attach that to fondant that has been rolled out a little on the heavy side. Cut around the image, and allow to dry hard. About a day or two. Then attach a dowel rod or other item to make it stand.
Not the most creative, hth.
Will this help? the next link might help also
I don't know if this can help, but I'm working on this just now:
They are gymnasts, but the postures are similar to ballerinas. These will be attached to the sides of the cake. I also have to make a topper. So I will stick a thin wire inside and she will be standing on the top of the cake. These are only silhouettes, it you need a figure, there is this (fantastic site):
