If you want to learn to create fun, edible characters for your cakes, you’ve come to the right class! Creating characters for your cake toppers adds a one-of-a-kind element to your designs. Learn alongside Joly Diaz who will teach you helpful modeling techniques and share her decorating tips along the way.
Before you get started building your character, you’ll first learn about the materials needed to make the cake topper. Joly Diaz will explain the use of gum paste and moldable chocolate, as well as what materials will be used to create the body structure of your characters.
Join Joly as she demonstrates how to knead fondant and gum paste before showing you how to seal it properly. Then it’s time to begin modeling the body, torso, and legs of your character. Once the torso is dry, you can start modeling the fondant and gum paste to create your character’s clothes. Joly will also show you how to use cutters to design the tutu.
In this lesson, you’ll learn how to work your kneadable dough to achieve the best results when sculpting your character’s head and face. Joly will guide you through molding the facial features and shaping the head of your character before adding your final details in the next lesson.
Your cake topper is almost ready! Now it’s time to add the final details to your character. Joly will share a few helpful tricks she uses to support the finer details such as your character’s hair while the fondant dries. Once you’ve allowed everything to dry, your custom cake topper is ready to sit atop your next creation!
