Making of Dora cupcake toppers

A lot of people have asked us how we create the fondant toppers that go on our cakes. As you can expect, a lot of work goes into creating each topper by hand. We usually don’t get a chance to document how we do this, but there was one time when we did remember to take lots of pictures. 🙂

We had made Dora themed cupcakes for a little girl’s birthday last month, and the cupcakes had hand-painted pictures of Dora, Boots and Swiper. Although the toppers did not involve a lot of modeling with fondant, we hope the pictures give you a fair idea how we hand-painted each topper individually.

So, without further ado, we present to you – the making of Dora cupcake toppers.
