Hey everyone, today’s tutorial shares how to make a cat cake topper. I hope you like him. I made a black and white cat, but you can make whatever colour cat you like. You could even add details with edible dusts or paints. That way, you can copy an actual cat, making yours even more personal.

What Did I Use To Make My Cat Cake Topper?

I made my cat out of black and white modelling paste. Modelling paste is different from normal ready to roll icing/sugarpaste, because it’s firmer, making it easier to model with. It also sets harder so your topper will be less fragile. The black modelling paste I used is The Modelling Paste in Black Vanilla and it is by far my favourite black modelling paste. It holds it shape firmly, without drying out and cracking. The white modelling paste is Renshaw Flower and Modelling Paste. I also used a tiny amount of red sugarpaste for the tongue. I mixed the red with the white modelling paste to make the pink for the ears and nose. Lastly, I also coloured a tiny amount of white modelling paste with blue food colouring paste for the eyes. For glue, I used clear alcohol, but you can always use edible glue if you prefer. I use clear alcohol as it evaporates and doesn’t leave any marks. I’ll leave a list of all the items and tools that I use at the bottom of this page.

As you will have seen in the tutorial above, I didn’t use any internal structure in my cat cake topper. I felt that it was sturdy enough. If however, you didn’t feel that yours is stable enough, then you could insert an internal structure into the body. For this you could use a candy stick or a dry piece of spaghetti. You must insert it before the body is dry, leaving a small amount to place the head on. If you did use an internal support, you must make sure that you let the recipient of the cake topper know.
