In this video, you will learn how to make a Santa Claus cake topper! We have a *separate* video for Rudolph, which you can find if you CLICK HERE.
I had the best time making this cute little Santa, and I hope you'll give him a try too. Don't forget to check below the video for materials used!
White gum paste (tinted with copper coloring for skin)
Pre-colored black and red fondant (I keep pre-colored on hand as a short cut)
Tylose powder (or CMC)--for kneading into the red fondant to make it firmer.
Sugar Glue/Tylose Glue--(or your "glue" of choice)
Americolor Copper Coloring--for tinting Santa's skin
Toothpicks or thick pasta noodles (for anchoring pieces together)
Black Food Coloring Pen (I use Americolor) or you can paint with a very fine tipped brush if you don't have a pen.
Styrofoam block (useful if you are going to have an anchor coming from
Santa's foot, this is useful)
Rolling pin for rolling fondant/gum paste
parchment paper for resting pieces on to dry
Pink petal dust-if you want Santa to have rosy cheeks
*Royal Icing- optional--I used this for extra accents on Santa's beard and fur lining. (I used a tip 2 for this)
Lollipop Stick- optional--useful for an anchor from Santa's foot if you want one.
Sharpie or black pen with a fine tip (I mentioned using this on Santa's list--optional)
