Hi everyone, in this tutorial I show you how to make these quirky Halloween pumpkin cake toppers. These pumpkin cake decorations are so much fun to make and you can create lots of different facial expressions too!

To make these pumpkin toppers I used Renshaw’s Tiger Orange sugarpaste. I added a little amount of CMC powder to it to make it firmer. CMC powder is a great way to make your own modelling paste. I just add a little bit to my sugarpaste and then knead it through. You feel the sugarpaste become firmer as you knead.

I also used a small amount of white and black modelling paste for the facial features and black dragees for the eyes. I prefer to use dragees as they keep their shape. Finally, I coloured a little bit of white modelling paste with brown food colouring paste for the stork. A list of all the items I used can be found at the bottom of this page.

Before we check out the tutorial, take a close up look of my little pumpkin cake toppers.
