Lalaloopsy Halloween cake topper tutorial

I love to use modeling chocolate to make adorable characters. This Lalaloopsy cake topper is perfect for Halloween. Or, you can easily change the colors used to make this an appropriate cake topper for any fun event! Sit her in the middle of a cookie or cupcake display, or add her next to your favorite cake! She’s made all out of modeling chocolate, so it will taste delicious!

I must confess, when I was first asked to make a Lalaloopsy-themed cake for a little girl, I had no idea what it even was. Now, I have to admit, I love these dolls. The first one I made was for a little girl Zoe at the nonprofit organization Icing Smiles Annual Gala (seen below).

They are filled with so many details, fun colors, stitching, buttons, patterns, etc. They are the perfect theme for a party to surround with adorable button shaped cookies, cupcakes and even to sit alongside a cake.

Ready to try making one yourself? See how I did it in this fun video tutorial:

What occasion will you make this Lalaloopsy cake topper for?

    I just loved your Lalloopsy as it was my granddaughters 3rd Birthday today and she got a Lalaloopsy doll. If I had known I could have tried your instructions. Thanks will try next time.

    Love how you show people step by step how to do things and the tools you use MANY THANKS

  3. Hi, I am in love with this cake topper! Just wanting to know, would this keep indefinitely (as a keepsake I suppose) or would I be better to make it out of fondant/gumpaste if I was wanting to keep it afterwards? I have a newly found cake decorating addiction so am still learning about alot of things. Thankyou :-)
