Who doesn’t love little novelty cake toppers?
Super easy and fun to make these toppers would have to be one of my favourite things to make when cake decorating.
The first series of animals I made stood about 10cm tall (Cow)- 8cm (pig and sheep). The animals were bright, colourful and free standing. The cow and the pig are made completely from fondant while the sheep has royal icing for its fur.
The second series of animals I made stood about 10 cm (Cow) and 8 cm (big) but had shorter legs. They were also free standing and made completely from fondant.
The only thing I had to consider when making these animals was allowing sufficient time for the fondant to set. So this meant that I had to allow time for all the circular shapes to go hard before putting them together.
