Fondant Drum Set

fondant drummer

About a month ago, I made this cute little drum set with a matching drummer.  I know nothing about drums so I had to do some research on what these things really look like. Each drum was sculpted out of Rice Krispies Treats. I cut out the right size circles of RKT and actually rolled the circles on the table to get a nice clean edge. They were covered in red fondant and a circle of white of fondant was put on the front or top to make it look like a drum. The cymbals were placed on skewers and painted gold.

The order was pretty specific on this cake, the drummer had to be wearing a sweater and a green baseball hat. I gave the sweater a textured look by rolling the fondant on a rubber mat before I attached it to the figurine.  The whole topper fit on top of an 8 inch cake.  The topper was pretty heavy so remember when you do have heavy toppers always support it! Dowels or straws in the cake! Have a great week.
