Hi everyone, today I’m sharing my cute sheep cake topper tutorial. I call him ‘Sheep In Jumper’. He’s actually based on a stuffed toy that my mum has had in her bedroom for many years now. She bought it while on holiday in the Lake District. He’s definitely a favourite of my girls and I’ve always thought that he would make a super cute cake topper!

Now, after some internet research I believe he is called Sheep Lambert, but unfortunately I can’t find anywhere in the UK that sells him anymore. I’ve found similar ones in America and Australia. One even has his own blog and Instagram page, where he shares all his adventures! If you google ‘Sheep Lambert With Jumper’ you will find him.

So that’s how I made my cute sheep cake topper! I really hope that you found the tutorial useful. Any comments, pleased leave them below.

I will leave a list of all the items that I used in this tutorial, at the bottom of this post. First, I would like to talk you through what I used to make him. My sheep was made from white modelling paste. To make the beige colour, I used PME Old Gold food colouring paste. This is one of my favourite colours because it’s so versatile. It all depends on the amount that you add. Your paste will go from off white/ivory to a deep caramel colour. I added a tiny amount for the face and then a little more for the hooves.

The jumper was actually made from pink fondant (sugarpaste) that I made into modelling paste, using CMC powder. CMC powder is great when you only need small amounts of modelling paste. You just work a tiny amount into the fondant, until you feel it firming up and then you have modelling paste. CMC powder is really handy to have in the cupboard when you only need small amounts of modelling paste. It’s much more economical too!

The eyes are made from small black sugar pearls. You could use small balls of black modelling paste if you prefer. I find the sugar pearls easier as they keep their shape.

You can take a closer look at everything that I used below. I also have many other cake topper sugar model tutorials, take a look here.
