I loved making the fondant cupcake toppers for Easter so much. So I came up with these sweet teddy bear cupcake toppers. I have made them in pink and blue and they are just perfect for a baby shower.
This is what I use:
Rolled fondant icing
Gel paste colors
Small blossom cutter with ejector (PME)
Teddy bear embosser from the Cradle 3D set (PatchWork Cutters)
Round cookie cutter (40mm)
Round scallop cookie cutter 2 1/4″ (58mm)
Round Piping tip no 2
Round piping tip with a 10mm opening
A little cornstarch for dusting and a small knife (not showing) if you want to make the tiny leaves on the girl cupcake toppers
Start adding some tylo powder to your white base. This will help the cupcake toppers to hold the shape better when they are placed in the frosting.
Roll out the white fondant to a 3 mm thickness and cut out circles with the scallop cookie cutter. Place them on a lightly cornstarch dusted tray as you go.
Take the round piping tip and “cut out” a small hole in each of the scallops.
Use another color of rolled fondant for the center of the cupcake toppers and roll out the fondant to a 2mm thickness. Cut out circles with the 40mm cookie cutter.
Use the large teddy bear embosser from the Patchwork cutter Cradle set and emboss the “center circle”.
Next brush a little tylo glue on the back of the embossed circle and place it in the middle of the white base.
If you like, you can glue on a couple of small blossoms and tiny leaves for the girl cupcake toppers.
TIP! I make the leaves out of tiny pieces of rolled fondant. Roll them into a small tear drop shape and make a little vein with a small knife.
For the boys, I have made a small ball. Roll out your fondant thinly. Use the round piping tip with the 10mm opening and cut out some dots. Use the end of the no 2 piping tip and emboss the middle of the ball.
Attache the small ball with a little brush of tylo glue.
Let the cupcake toppers dry thoroughly before use.
I love your work, can you please tell me where to get the crib cutter set, I live in the USA. thanks

It must take a lot of patience to do this. These are too cute to eat!
Please see the “This is what I use” in the tutorial. There you can find more details about the embosser.
I love it. I wish I had it sooner. What about a beach theme cake topper
Love when I see an email from you…it’s like getting an unexpected present in the mail…thank-you
You can use a small spatula knife to lift the fondant circle. I also let them dry well before moving them.
Oh, that’s so cute! love it!
Kisses from Hong Kong,
It looks so adorable and so pretty , I love it 😀

Please see here https://cakejournal.com/archives/easter-cupcakes I have placed it on a flat swirl.
You can place them flat or standing in a swirl. It’s all up to you. Please see how I did it last time https://cakejournal.com/archives/easter-cupcakes
I would pipe a “flat” swirl on the cupcakes and then place the topper on top. You can see how I did on some Easter toppers https://cakejournal.com/archives/easter-cupcakes
Hvor er de bare smukke, jeg elsker de farver du altid bruger til dine kreationer.
Tusind tak Annette. Ja, lige med farver, er jeg måske lidt fastlåst 😉 Men jeg dur bare ikke til skrappe farver haha!
That’s lovely, cute and really useful!! Thanks!
They are very effective and now you have show us they would not take long to make, please can you tell me what colour you used to get that lovely green?
