Hi! I need to do a pacifier as my cake topper. Any idea how to do it? I don't have MMP it's not available in my country. Please would love to hear suggestions. Thank you
What is MMP??
You can make toppers out of fondant, gum paste, cold porcelain (it must not touch the cake). Perhaps if you can say what is available where you are, we can take it from there. In the mean time here's a link for a tutorial. HTH
You can also use modeling chocolate, marzipan or even Mexican sugar paste or pastillage.
I'd do it in 3 parts, the sucker and the handle and the plate and then glue them together after they are dry with edible glue.
Hi! MMP is Mexican modelling paste. Thank you so much Carolinecakes and Julia 1812. You both have been a great help. Will be sitting tonight and work on it. Am not so good with fondant as not available here, I just bring around 5 kgs when I travel. I work mainly with buttercream, but you both have been a great help, bless you
You are welcome. When I make toppers I add a little tylose powder to the fondant, it helps it to dry firm. Some people use cornstarch. You just knead it in. HTH Feel free to ask if you have any more questions.
