How to make a turkey topper


Remember the TURKEY cake I made for Thanksgiving last year?

Well, I LOVED it so much that I used it as inspiration for making a little turkey topper!

And yup… this little cutie has now made it into my collection of toppers that I just CAN’T eat…

I mean… Come on! Look at it!

That’s just CUTENESS OVERLOAD! hahaha 😉

I even did a VIDEO TUTORIAL on how to make a turkey topper over at Cake Journal.

So, you can follow along and make it for your Thanksgiving cakes and cupcakes. 

I used BOTH, marshmallow fondant and modeling chocolate to make this topper.

You can use only fondant if you like but modeling chocolate is sturdier and dries faster. 

BTW, I am obsessed with these ADORABLE little pumpkin candies.

I think they are PERFECT for embellishing cakes this time of the year 🙂

Here are some more DETAILS of this cake:

– This is a small chocolate cake (5×3). 
– The cake is frosted in the best buttercream icing ever. 
– I used a FORK to decorate the cake (Yup! A fork!!!). 
– And I just threw some green and orange sprinkles on top and around the base of the cake.
– Then, I placed my little turkey topper on top and a even a little pumpkin shaped candy.

And voila…All done!
