Tuesday Topper: Wallace Cupcake

Tuesday Toppers: Wallace cupcake


Well I finally got to Wallace. Have I said yet just how much I love Wallace? His big cheesy grin, and those teeth are just so funny. He's a little more detailed than some of my other toppers, but he's just too cute, how can you resist :D? So without further ado, here's what you need to make him:

-Fondant smoother
-Knife
-Ball tool
-Paint brush
-Peach, white, and black fondant

wallace21

-Take large ball of fondant and flatten slightly with fondant smoother.

-Pinch one end of the disk forming a pear shape.

-Using the small end of the ball tool make indents in the shape of a smile. Then smooth it out and make it so there is a lip all of the way around.(this is where you will insert the teeth)


wallace17

-Take end of paintbrush and gently push down while pressing the top of the head to form the forehead.

-Using the small end of the ball tool, make two holes for the eyes.

-Cut 1/4" strips for the top and bottom teeth.

-Using the knife make marks for the teeth, then at each mark push the tip of the knife inward slightly to define the teeth more.

wallace9

-insert the bottom set of teeth pushing them under the lip you made.

wallace8

-Take some leftover white fondant and place it in the mouth (this helps support the upper teeth)

wallace7

-Insert the top teeth and using some more excess fondant make two small balls for eyes and put them in.

wallace6

-Make two very tiny balls of black and apply them to the eyes pressing gently to flatten them. Then take one of the smaller balls of peach and apply to face.

wallace5

-Using the back of the paintbrush, make holes for the ears.

wallace4

-To make the ears cut the other ball of peach in half, roll into balls, and flatten into disks.

wallace3wallace2

-Pinch one side and roll it to make a point. Then taking the small end of the ball tool again, make a small indent. Insert into holes in the head.

  10. Wow, you made it sound so easy! He looks so cute :)
    I know I wouldn't be able to come up with something as good as that, mine would probably end up with crooked teeth and the rolling eyes haha. Well, practice makes perfect as they say :) Thanks for sharing this!
