Figurines

I love making my cakes personal! I try to add some sort of fondant figurine to each cake  to give it character and make it unique. I use Wilton fondant or I add Tylose powder to any fondant so it will dry fast and hard. You have to work quickly when it comes fondant because it starts to harden within a couple of minutes.  I usually use a skewer, toothpick or a lollipop stick to give the figurine internal support. I’m always looking for new sculpting techniques to learn because you can almost make ANYTHING out of fondant.  Enjoy!

  1. I have a question how did you do the fire hydrant I’m in desperate need to know can you please email me ladicakestreats@yahoo.com and let me know it will be so appreciated thanks !


    • Hi shay! The fire hydrants are pretty easy when you get the hang of it. You need red fondant, knife and round cutters (i use piping tips). I rolled out the red and used my larger round tip cutter to make the base, a circle. I then rolled another piece of red to look like sausage. I cut the ends off and that was set on top of the base. Before I attached it to the base I scored lines in the sausage with my knife. I then cut of another circle with my round tip and placed it on the sausage. I rolled out a ball and cut it in half to place on top of the last circle. Then I topped it off with a small circle. I hope this helps and my description was okay. I also love to get a real photo of what I’m are working with and just really try to mimic it with simple shapes. Have a great day and good luck.
