How to make Hiro from Big Hero 6 Figurine Tutorial 

diy how to make big hero 6 figurine tutorial



I’m super excited to share this tutorial with you! I’ve been getting a lot of requests on how to make human figurines for cake toppers.  I’ve actually been trying to improve my sculpting/figurines the past couple of years myself, it’s never easy, I understand why people would want to see someone make one in person.  So I’ve recorded myself making Hiro from the movie Big Hero 6. I hope you’ll find it helpful. The video is sped up to make it shorter, but the portion where I’m making the face I kept it slower so you can see.   
I hope this helps!

Cute Hippo Figurine Tutorial, with Fondant/Gumpaste

cute hippo fondant gumpaste figurine tutorial how to
 HOW TO MAKE A CUTE HIPPO CAKE TOPPER
CUTE HIPPO FIGURINE TUTORIAL
WITH FONDANT, GUMPASTE OR CLAY

1. Roll the gumpaste into an oval shape, use the side of the mini rolling pin or your finger, to push the top smaller so you have the bottom part wider as the hippo’s nose and mouth.


2. It should look like this, the top part is smaller than the bottom.

3. Make a small oval shape for the body, and secure a toothpick inside to attach the head on later. I made the body smaller than the head, I think it’s cuter that way, but you can do it any size you’d like.

4. For the ears, use two different size circle cutters.

5. With water, glue the ear pieces together. With an exacto knife, trim a bit off at the bottom of the ears so it’s a flat surface to flue onto the head.

6. For the eyes, make two of each – white tear drop shape, then pink circle, and a smaller purple circle.

7. Attach all the eye pieces together, with the colored pieces at the point of the teardrop. Trim off at pieces that are sticking out.

8. Glue the ears and eyes onto the hippo’s head.

9. With a large circle cutter, press it into the bottom of the head to make the smile. 

10. With an exacto knife, make the smile brackets on both sides.

11. With a round ball tool, push in two dents for the nose. Roll out pink fondant really thin and cut out 2 circles that would fit into the dents.

12. Glue them into the nostrils.Push them in with a ball tool.

13. Make 2 small triangular shapes for the legs, with exacto knife, mark where the toes are.

14. Do the same for the arms, except they are slightly longer than the legs.

15. Use a small circle cutter to cut out white fondant, use an exacto knife to cut the circles in half.

16. Glue the white pieces at the end of the arms and legs. Attach the body onto the two legs.

17. Assemble the arms.

18. Put the head on, you’re done! πŸ™‚

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake by TheCakingGirl

the very hungry caterpillar cake tutorial diy fondant

Hey everyone! I made this The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake a long time ago, but didn’t upload it onto my blog but would like to share it with all of you.  Just found it in an old file on my computer.  It’s one of my favorite book as a kid, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I’ve had this cake request several times, and each time I like to replicate the book illustrator’s painting style.

painting on gumpaste fondant
  I started off making fruits with white gumpaste. I let them dry for an hour and painting onto them with Wilton food color gels diluted with lemon extract.
