Making a fairy model or topper

What should be used to make fairy model or topper for the cake? I think it is not gumpaste. Please help.
Kind regards ๐Ÿ™


Hi rituagrawl345

If you donโ€™t want to use gum paste, there are some good firm setting fondants such as Saracino, or use half fondant and half modeling chocolate to make a firm setting medium. Marzipan is also a good modeling agent so long as the person eating the model is not allergic to nuts.

Rice Krispies is another alternative. However, once the topper is made, it requires โ€˜dressingโ€™ In two layers of your chosen paste medium to cover the bumpy texture of the Rice Krispies.

I hope this makes sense and, again, if you make a Google search for modeling chocolate or rice Krispy carving tutorials, you will see some good techniques. ๐Ÿ™‚
