Fondant People // Gardener Pop





Here are some pics of the cake topper I made for my Grandads birthday cake a couple of weeks ago. He loved it! I was so happy with it. Making a standing fondant person is hard work, but it's so rewarding when its finished (and it hasn't fallen over!) He is made from coloured fondant with a hardner added, and toothpicks in him to help him stand up. The 'dirt' is made from dried, finally chopped fondant and there is a toothpick down the centre of his spade to help it stand up.

Hopefully I'll have a couple more to do in the next couple of weeks, I love making fondant people!
