Anne Heap teaches you how to model cake toppers that are too adorable for words. Learn how to color, structure and form gum paste into a sleeping baby, a sitting boy, a sitting pregnant lady and a standing woman.These characters are so cute you could almost eat them up! Adorn your cakes with these colorful figurines and apply the techniques learned in class to model an endless variety of cute characters. Start with the basics of working with gum paste, and learn how to use gel colors to produce realistic skin tones. Then sculpt your toppers and dress them with fashionable gum paste outfits that you create – no sewing machine required! Support your figures with skewers and wire to place them in a wide variety of positions. Your toppers will take the cake!
Have you completed our figure sculpting class? Mastered the sitting pregnant woman, created free-standing couples with posed arms? Ready to elaborate, create new characters and put it all together into a finished project?

Just posted new classes in December at our bakery in Denville, NJ!
Another tutorial for those who have taken our Craftsy Cake Toppers Class. This one builds upon the Pirate Themed Cake topper and adds a pirate treasure chest!
