Baby’s First Birthday

My little babes first birthday is quickly approaching, and I wanted to make a cake topper for her. While I make a lot of toppers for weddings, cake toppers for anniversaries and birthdays can also be a lot of fun.

Here’s a pic of my little monkey:

I wanted to sculpt a cute cartoon babe based on our photoshoot. It all starts with a bit of wire and I work out the facial details first:

Looks funny right? I really wanted to capture the floral crown she wore as well:

My babe has a pretty cheeky personality and has big cheeks so I wanted to capture that in the topper.

After baking the head, I started work on the dress, the arms and the base.

And voila!

Now if my first ever attempt at a dairy/egg free birthday cake is terrible, at least I have an amazing topper to decorate it with!👍
