Modeling Chocolate Cake toppers ordered for a joint birthday for a little boy and a girl.
Kai-Lan is approximately 3.5 inches tall and made out of modeling chocolate. I used RKT to shape her head and help with not making it too heavy for her tiny body and she has a 6 inch popsicle stick that runs from the middle of her head and down 3 inches past her feet to stick into the cake. The birthday girl's favorite episode was the one about a trip to China so I made Kai-Lan in a red and yellow Chinese outfit dusted in red luster dust to look silky. I love the little yellow knots on the front of her shirt....she turned out so cute!
I've made Kai-Lan a few times before and you can see them here with some additional instructions: Kai-Lan
Thomas the Train was 5 inches long and about 3 inches tall. He turned out about an inch bigger than what I had originally planned and it was also the very first time I have ever made a train like this. I started his body out with a RKT rectangle and built up the modeling chocolate layer by layer by layer until I got his shape down perfectly.
He got a dusting of blue luster dust around his body and pearl luster dust around his face to give him a little more pop! I loved how he turned out....beep beep!
The mother used these to top a sheet cake with. She said that one of the kids tried to grab Kai-Lan as soon as they saw the cake and got the side of the frosting smashed - it's so nice to hear or see how the children react but what a scare to have one of them actually reach out for it!
