How to make a pregnant woman baby shower topper

How to make a pregnant woman baby shower topper

I’ve made this topper a million times (mostly because having babies just never seems to go out of style) and it is one of my favorites. Celebrating babies is definitely one of my favorite past times. Although I have no children of my own (yet) I do quite enjoy babies and babies + parties is just heaven on earth.

Baby shower cakes can vary vastly in theme from fashion to jungle animals. Colors can be anything from bright and colorful to understated and elegant. The one thing that all these baby showers do have in common though is mother-to-be! There is nothing more personal than a cake topper specially made to represent momma’s tastes like colors, features and sometimes accessories. I always customize my toppers to the client’s specifications (eyes, hair, skin color, outfit style/color and accessories). Sometimes we even make the father-to-be! Daddy needs love too :)

You can learn to make your own mother-to-be cake topper by following my easy video tutorials. They are free and I made them a while back just for my youtube viewers. I post videos frequently on various cake tutorials and topper tutorials so be sure to subscribe and give the video a thumbs up if you liked it so you don’t miss any new tutorials coming out!

The first video is on how to make the body/dress. If you want to see how I make my fondant, you can watch the video here 

FAQ: I make my own fondant (Marshmallow fondant mixed with Tylose Powder) but you can use whatever you want (gum paste, store bought fondant, modeling chocolate

I use Americolor brand food color gels to color white fondant

Yes you can eat the toppers. They dry to be hard on the outside and soft in the middle (like a gumball)

If you don’t want to make your own topper, you can order a topper from me by contacting me through email Sitting baby shower toppers are $40 per topper plus shipping. YES we can ship! 

The second video is all about the facial features and final details!

If you used this tutorial to make a topper, please email me pics and I will post them to our facebook page!

    Thank you for the video!! You are amazing! I love your work! How would I make a lady topper that was standing? Should I build her legs and then let them dry laying flat or build her legs with a lollipop or toothpick skewered through her legs and styrofoam? How do you keep the standing topper balanced! Thank you!! :)

      Yes you have to put supports in the legs. I skewer them into styro and then build up from there. The skewers keep the topper standing upright. I really need to do this tutorial :-p
