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.

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!
