How to make clay wedding cake toppers

Postby Grocage В» 11.01.2020

Issue a (Charles) William Sr.

This post may contain affiliate links, please read my full disclosure : here Sharing is caring! DIY — Wedding Cake Topper : If you are looking for something different to decorate your wedding cake and are feeling crafty, here is how I made my own llama wedding cake topper using polymer clay for my wedding cake. I hope this sparks the creativity in you. I have heard of clay, but never really knew the differences, nor did I know the endless possibilities you can make with it.

If you bake cakes, it has the similar consistency of fondant. With this particular clay, it is oven baked when you are satisfied with your item and this seals it to where it is hard and can be kept forever.

When looking for cake toppers, I wanted something a little different. Heck, my whole wedding was a little different, but I loved every moment of it. So I started looking at different ideas on Etsy and Pinterest and found a lady on Etsy that makes the cutest cake toppers. I read the materials she used and began researching. I noticed it seemed pretty similar consistency to fondant, just not edible. I have made characters with fondant before, so I was determined to try my hand with this polymer clay.

Personally, I love winging it with things. Some of my greatest creations come from winging it. I think it came so cute! I tried to take as many pictures as I can throughout to make it a tutorial. The average cake topper I saw with polymer clay was around inches width and height. Tool set [ The tool set for polymer clay is pretty much the same as the one for fondant, so I used the set I bought for baking and make sure to wash each tool after] This set has been discontinued but you can find other sets through Amazon.

This one includes alphabets, numbers and different sizes of the most popular ones, i. This is probably one of my favorite tools. I love small things, and this is just perfect for all the little creations I make. You can use it for so many things. The bands are used to keep your fondant, clay, cookie dough all the same thickness.

Make it as thin or as thick as you need. I know this goes without saying, but wash the pin in between uses. I love having a variety of baking sheet pans.

I usually cover them in foil for easy clean up. Start by making the legs. Mold it into the shape you prefer. I like to make it the smallest around where the neck will be and have the middle the biggest and then taper the back where the behind will be. Makes holes into the tops of the legs and the bottom of the body but be sure not to poke all the way through the other side with a toothpick. Smooth edges to blend together. Unlike fondant, these should easily blend together so there are no crease marks between the two.

Make sure legs are spread out to make sure the structure is sturdy. This is crucial for adding the neck and head. Learn from my mistake! Start creating a neck by making the roll about the same length as the body, but the same thickness as the legs.

If the neck is falling, try pushing more toothpick into the body. If that does not work, make neck smaller or thinner. To create the head, roll a some clay into a ball about the size of a quarter. Then, roll finger just on one side of the ball to make the front of the face smaller. I slightly flattened the bottom of the head to have it sit better on top the neck. The ears I also make rounded triangles and made an indent in the middle of the triangle to give the ear depth.

I left half the leg smooth and part of his face and ears smooth. I added small ball of black and then a tiny flattened ball of white. To construct the nose, I am back to my trusty rounded triangle, except smaller and much thinner than the tail.

Use water or liquid polymer to adhere it to the face. Use a toothpick or a wilton tool to make the mouth. Accessories: As you work on these, make sure before you finish them and adhere the pieces together that you are checking to make sure they fit your llamas. I made a base with the teal color to give a little color pop between the cake and the girl llama. It measured out to be 5 inches. I used one of my smaller mixing bowls to make the circle, since I have no cookie cutters that size.

I made sure both llamas fit correctly on the circle before adhering them with liquid polymer. I drew the heart myself with an exacto knife and wrote our initials and wedding date with a wilton pointed tool. When using this tool, you first instinct is to write like you do with a pen. However, this will tear the clay and leave you with more clay on one side. Instead, angle the tool or toothpick slightly sideways so you are more indenting the clay as opposed to digging down into it. Adhere the heart to the base.

Bake as your clay as your clay brand recommends. Check on your creation as it is baking. This is where I noticed my llama was too top heavy and the brown llama neck and head fell off.

Of course, HE would be the difficult one! Allow to cool when finished and it will harden. Want to spice up date night? Go here. Traveling to New Orleans? Save Save. Recipe Rating. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.

Just remember once you use something with clay… it should not be used with food in the future. Aahh yes! I would never have thought of using clay for cake toppers — thanks for sharing! Paint with topers favorite colors and then glue the bamboo skewers to the back. PS I know the post click about the letter decorations but all I kept thinking about was how delicious those donuts look… alittlesoapbox.
