Cake Topper Techniques: Fondant Animals

with Sharon Wee
Learn all about the fondant birds and the sugarpaste bees, and make adorable animal cake toppers with cake designer Sharon Wee.

Discover how to make fondant animals for cakes and treats sure to put a smile on any guest's face. You'll learn to make five basic shapes to start building cute and fun fondant animal cake toppers. Sharon's class is a great place to begin your foray into fondant modeling or elevate your existing cake-topper construction skills. In just minutes you'll create lovely ladybugs and beautiful bees before moving onto delightful ducks and proportional penguins. Sharon's no-nonsense approach will equip you with time-saving tips and gravity-defying construction techniques as you mold movement into your fondant creatures. Your fondant pig comes alive playing in a puddle, and a cute cow kicks up the celebration with a floating fondant-covered balloon. Sharon completes the class with a step-by-step guide for making her signature lovebirds with detailed beaks, bellies and wings.
