Sugarpaste – 3D figures

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It was raining very heavy in KL, there’s nothing much to do except to stay indoors. So this is what I did this afternoon. Practicing making some animals, using fondant / sugarpaste. As usual, most of them are overweight :lol: , like this teddy bear.


And this fat chick.


Notice the sharp knife I’m using. You can buy this in any hardware shop. Very useful to make the feathers and the shape of the little chick’s feet.

A clown :


I also tried making this cute elephant. Macam cacat kan ? Poor elephant..


Lastly I attempted to make a Sleeping Baby. First, to make the frills on the baby cot. Cut out a few round shapes using this cutter.



Use a toothpick to thin the edges only, move forward and backwards, all the way around and you will get the frills.


Make a cut and you will get one long row of frill. I use two colours.


In the end, after lots of touch up, here’s how my baby turned out :

The size of this whole thing is just as big as the palm of my hand, so imagine how difficult it is to shape the face. Thank God it’s quite blur here.. I think the head could be better off if it’s a little bit small.

Well, I hope this will inspire the artist in you. Good night, everybody ! (off to see AF now ).

The figurines are so cute. Starting to fall in love with gumpaste…:)

By the way Kak, what’s the difference between gumpaste & fondant?

Ana, I’m not good at making the eyes. I think you are better than me. Normally I see they use the edible pen, or press a round shape with a small straw. Or just glue a tiny round gumpaste for the eyes. White and then the black on top. I’m using Wilton gel colour too and there is no white, probably because the fondant original colour is already white.
Thanks for visiting Anna, I’ve seen your blog. Very very pretty.

Thanks Fatboybakes, I need to make the middle section smaller, always over estimate the size.
