How to make a teddy bear cake topper part 2

Here are the part 2 on how to make a teddy bear cake topper.

Step 1:
Take a piece of fondant and roll it into a “rough” ball. This is, just to see if the proportions between head and body looks OK. Add more or less fondant until you are happy with the size. Knead a little Tylo powder into the fondant and roll it into a smooth ball. Brush a little glue on the cocktail stick and place the head on the teddy.


Step 2:
Make a stitch from the back of the head to the front. Take a small piece of fondant and roll it into oval shape. Make sure that it’s not too big for the teddy’s head. Flatten it and glue it on with a little Tylo glue.

Step 3:
Make an indentation at the front where the nose will be. Use the other end of the quilting tool for this. Roll a tiny teardrop shaped ball of black fondant and glue it on.


Step 4:
Use the same end of the quilting tool to make the mouth.


Step 5:
With a pointy tool make “dimples” on the teddy’s cheeks.

Step 6:
Roll 2 small balls of fondant and form them into teardrops. Press with a ball tool and then pinch the ears. Remove a tiny bit of fondant from the ears. Make a hole with the pointy tool on each side on the head for the ears.


Step 7:
Brush a little bit of glue in the holes and attach the ears. Now it’s time to add a pair of eyes. Again use the pointy tool and make the holes for the eyes. The eyes should be placed close to the nose. Roll tiny balls of black fondant for the eyes. Brush a little glue and attach the eyes.


Step 8:
Mix a little bit of white petal powder with a few drops of clear alcohol (or lemon extract) Take a super fine brush and paint a little bit of white on the eyes and nose. Let the teddy dry and he is ready to be placed on a cake.


Note: Remember that there have been inserted a cocktail stick in the teddy’s body. Make sure that you remove the cocktail stick if it should be eaten.

Happy Caking!
