Pregnant Woman Cake Topper

Hey all! Just wanted to share a couple videos I just made on how to make a pregnant lady cake topper for a baby shower cake! I go through everything step by step from beginning to end (through two videos) and show you how to make a more detailed and life like figure that will wow your guests!

Pregnant woman toppers are so popular for baby shower cakes but usually the toppers are pretty simple and if you’re looking to challenge yourself, this tutorial is for you. I will show you a few tips and tricks to make your topper much more realistic. Say bye-bye to sausage arms and legs.

Part 1 – Making the Body

This first video will walk you through making the lower body, the clothing and the upper body as well as how to make realistic looking arms, hands and fingers. Feel free to change up these steps and personalize your topper to look like the mommy to be!

Part 2 – Making the head, hair and features

This second part goes over how to make a realistic head/face, adding features and adding realistic hair. These can also be personalized to match your mommy-to-be’s features. Most of all, have fun!

I will be posting more tutorials every week so remember to subscribe to my youtube channel so you’ll get the latest updates. If you have an idea for a tutorial you would like to see, please don’t hesitate to let me know! I am always open to suggestions!

UPDATE!

New video for more detailed facial features for the pregnant woman topper tutorial is now up! Check it out!

This new tutorial goes in depth to show you how to make features that are not painted on and more realistic. If you’ve mastered the intermediate topper, this one is sure to take you to the next level!

The new features video shows you how to make more realistic eyes and lips and some tips on how to customize the look.

 

If you want to order a pregnant woman topper from me you can! I make these all the time and ship them to people all over the USA. You can customize the color of the dress, hair, shoes, eyes and hairstyle. You can even have me make a daddy topper to match if you would like. The cost is $60 per figure (not including shipping) and they are in the sitting position. Just email me at info@artisancakecompany.com to place your order.

    the second video did start off showing the head already made but then you showed how to make it a few minutes after, maybe that person didn’t continue to watch the video. Good job for your first tutorial, it really helps to be artistic when doing these types if things. Thanks for the tutorial, i was thinking the other day it would be really nice to put a topper that looks like the mommy to be, :)

    First of all i would love to say THANK YOU for sharing this talent, i have only started to bake and decorate 5 months ago but i am so hooked, love it so much… and to learn your skill will take me a while ;-) i have already started making the girl, nearly done just hair to do. Only I can see one problem with my Girl -she is cracking in shoulders and legs behind the knee, but reading from the comments i didn’t use tylose but CMC- not sure what is the difference?… also i will make next time myown fondant. Once more thank you ;-)

    Hello,

    I enjoyed your video! I think that it will be very helpful. The only question I have is: How did you attach the head to her body?

    • http://artisancakecompany.com Elizabeth Marek

      The head is pushed onto the skewer from the body. Glue with a little tylose water

  • Annie

    This is a great tutorial! Thank you so much! I was wanted to ask what brand of fondant you use; or do you make your own? If you make your own, can you recommend a good recipe?

    • http://artisancakecompany.com Elizabeth Marek

      I make my own. It’s just melted marshmallows mixed with powdered sugar and tylose

  • jessica

    where can i get supplies???? and are they expensive?

    • http://artisancakecompany.com Elizabeth Marek

      You can get fondant at a craft store like Michaels, Joanns or a cake supply store. If you go to Michaels or Joanns, you can use a 40% off coupon for the fondant. You can get a coupon online from their website or in the newspaper.
