Baby Block Cake Toppers
How to make Baby block cake toppers by our guest blogger Victorious Cupcakes.
This is a really cute tutorial which is perfect for so many occasions; New Baby, Christening, 1st Birthdays and Children’s Novelty Cakes. You can use whatever colours suit the occasion…go for pastel shades for babies and lovely bright colours in primaries for your toddlers!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 20mm Square Cutter (or) A ruler to measure 20mm x 20mm
- Sharp knife
- Stitch Tool
- FMM Alphabet Cutters
- Water Brush (or) A fine brush
Ingredients – To make 5 blocks you will need:
- 30g white sugarpaste
- 40g modelling paste
- Food colour paste
- Cornflour for dusting
- Edible silver paint
Mix 30g of fondant and 30g of modelling paste (keeping 10g for the lettering) together and knead for a couple of minutes to warm the paste up. Colour with a touch of food colour paste.
Roll the fondant/paste mixture into a 20mm thick sausage and mark out squares on the top, as a guide where to cut.
Cut the squares out using a sharp knife and flatten the top by rubbing it onto your work surface. Use a touch of corn flour to stop the squares sticking.
Emboss the edges of the squares with the stitch tool or a cocktail stick.
Roll 10g of white modelling paste to 1mm thick and leave to dry on the counter for 15 minutes. Dust the counter and letter cutters lightly with corn flour. Cut your letters and tap the end of the cutter on the counter – the letter should fall out. If it gets stuck in the cutter, the paste needs to be thinner, roll and leave to dry again.
Stick the letters to the blocks with a water brush.
You could leave the letters white or paint them with edible paint.
Display the blocks on your chosen cake.
