Birthday Bear Cake Topper



Last week I sculpted a cake topper for a friend whose son was turning one. I was given a picture of a bear on a napkin to go by. This is the cake topper that I was able to come up with.





After sculpting the body and legs of the bear out of gumpaste and allowing them to fully dry then I started to add the details. I used a small ball tool to make the belly button of the bear. This adds a cute touch. For the paws of the bears legs I used a tip 7 to make the circles.





Here is a closeup of the paws. This added another dimension to the bear and gave it more of a stuffed animal look.





I added some non-toxic chalk to the inside of the belly button. This adds some extra color to the overall body. You can also see the star that I embossed into the inside of the shirt. A balloon was the final touch to the cake topper. I sculpted a balloon and inserted a floral wire in order to attach it to the bear.


The cake topper went on a smash cake and it looked so cute. I was unable to take a picture of it at the birthday party because I was recording the event so the parents will have it to look back on.


Have a great week everyone.
