Hi guys,

 

I've just recently started doing 3D gumpaste figurines as my cupcake toppers. I'm having this problem where they're always toppling when i place them on the buttercream/frosting. I only have this problem with standing figurines. Any tips/advice on what i can do to prevent this from happening?

i think you should make them sitting down--

 

every idea i think of will tear up the cupcake--like sucker sticks--i mean there's just not enough body to the cake to hold up tall heavy stuff--

 

or make the figurines lighter--

 

that whole gravity thing--whadayah gonna do right?

you can do this as well or try out some ways on how you can improve it , like somehow make the figurine lean on the icing. :) .. ^_^
