Korean Hanbok Dol Cake Toppers

Korean Hanbok Doljanchi Cake Toppers, Boy and Girl dressed in traditional 1st Birthday Outfits, Gumpaste.

I love making these Korean 1st Birthday figurines and luckily, I have had the awesome opportunity to make a few of them over the past year.

Each figurine is made out of gumpaste and stand at 4-5 inches tall.  All the little details are hand painted in food grade gel colors and edible pearl and gold luster dust.  I also add pearl dust to the clothing to give the illusion of silk cloth.  To see how they're made, please take a look at the 1st Hanbok Dol I made and shared under this post HERE, Korean Hanbok Dol Cake.
Ci's Hanbok Dol Figurine (June 2012):  My 2nd Hanbok Dol Figurine and custom made to match the little, birthday's girls traditional Korean dress:  She stood at 5 inches tall.  I also made a couple dozen gumpaste flower blossoms and gumpaste butterflies to decorate her own cake with.
