Today I have a guest post from the very talented Naera from Cake Dutchess. She has taken adorable little teddy bears and turned them into zombies for Halloween. These fondant toppers would look great on a cake in a group, or individually on halloween cupcakes.
Roll an oval-shaped ball of sugarpaste in your hand.
Roll out a round-shaped form of a lighter sugarpaste and press it on to the oval shaped ball.
Make a hole with the back of a needle/scriber-tool; this is where your zombie bear’s filling will be showing.
Press a tiny white ball of sugarpaste in the hole.
Use the needle/scriber-tool tear the sugarpaste apart a little.
Roll out another smaller round ball for the head and use a balltool to press in two holes for the eyes. Attach to body.
Roll out a smaller round ball of lighter sugarpaste for his snout.
Roll small black balls of sugarpaste for the eyes and nose (in the example I’ve damaged one eye).
Use the needle/scriber-tool for the “mouth.”
Roll out two small balls of darker and lighter sugarpaste, for the ears, and press these together.
Use a small balltool to attach the ears to the head.
Roll out the legs and press the end with your finger so it lifts up a little.
Attach the legs to the body.
Roll out the arms and use the needle/scriber-tool for details.
Roll out 4 tiny balls of sugarpaste for the paws, one bigger and three smaller ones.
There you have them, zombie bears fit for any spooky cake!
