Hi everyone, here’s an easy witch’s hat cupcake topper tutorial for Halloween. The hat in the tutorial below is from my Hocus Pocus themed cupcakes. If you wanted to take a look at the Hocus Pocus cupcakes click here.
Witch’s Hat Cake Topper Tutorial
For this tutorial I use vodka to stick the topper together. You can also use edible glue, I just find vodka easier and cleaner to use.
Roll out a piece of black modelling paste and cut out a circle shape. Leave to harden for a few hours. I usually leave mine overnight.
Take a piece of black modelling paste and form it into a cone shape, as can be seen above.
Roll out a piece of orange modelling paste into a thin tube. Lightly brush some vodka all around the outside of the circle and then wrap the orange tube around it. Trim to fit and smooth the join with your fingers.
Stick the cone in the middle of the circle using a little vodka.
Roll out a piece of black modelling paste and cut out a strip. Lightly brush it with a little vodka and wrap it around the base of the hat.
Cross the ends of the strip over at the back of the hat and trim to fit. TOP TIP! If you have a join mark on the orange rim then use the tail of the black ribbon to cover it up.
Lastly, roll different colour pieces of fondant into tiny balls and stick to the black ribbon using a little vodka.
