I love doing fondant cake toppers!
I think they appeal to the artist in me, making items in minature, particularly semi realistic toppers, I’m not fussy what they are, they are all fun to make.
This little baby topper is particularly adoreable, it’s about 2 and a 1/2 inches long (6 and a 1/2 cm) and fully edible, I always warn people though that breaking a tooth is a possibility 😀 , as the fondant sets very hard, and eating a fondant baby would be just a little creepy… just saying LOL!!
I usually make several at a time then when they have sufficiently hardened I individually decorate them, this particular Topper I call ‘Little Angel’. With blushed ‘cheeks’ and shimmery wings you can’t help but smile.

Toppers are fantastic for long distance transport, I often receive requests from remote locations where people don’t have easy access to a cake store and transporting a delicate cake is just not practical, due to the fact the cake would undoubtedly arrive looking more like a train wreck than a cake, my worst nightmare lol.
Having said that, I did send one cake over a vast nail biting distance, you can read about it here in ‘About Sugar Sugar’.
It enables customers to have a beautiful cake for their special event, they simply make their own cake and add the Toppers to complete… and There you have it! One special cake without the stress added!
Roses are also a big hit, I was making these for a very special lady so they are not quite complete in the picture but you get the idea.
Similarly roses can be sent via post then arranged on a cake to make it something really special, why should anyone have to miss out on the special cakes just because they are too far away!
Keep an eye out on upcoming tutorial posts as I will be showing how I made both of these types of Toppers and more.
