Easter Chick Cake Topper TutorialEquipment
- Ball tool (12 mm) - Dresden tool
- Round cutter or piping nozzle (5 mm)
- Small rolling pin
- Cocktail sticks (a few bunched up with a rubber band + 4 separate ones) - Wooden skewer
- 2 styrofoam balls (5 cm and 4.5 cm)
- 5 inch cake board
- Foam pad
- 60 g green sugarpaste
- 95 g white 50/50 FP/SP mix* with CMC** - 84 g yellow 50/50 FP/SP mix with CMC5 g orange flower paste
- 1 g white flower paste
- 7 mm ball of black flower paste
- edible glue
Create a dome as shown in the photo.
Press and smooth the edges to thin them.
Repeat the previous steps for the second larger ball (but use a 55 g ball of white 50/50 FP/SP mix). Leave the smaller egg shell on the ball to dry. You can take the bigger one off once it holds its shape.
For the legs you will need two 2.5 cm long cocktail stick pieces. Apply a small amount of glue on the cocktail stick piece. Take off the excess. Roll a 5 mm ball of orange flower paste. Place it in the middle of the cocktail stick piece and roll it on your hand or on the board. Use a scalpel to trim the ends (length of leg - 12 mm). Repeat this step for the second piece.
Roll two 2 g balls of orange flower paste. Form two teardrop shapes. Flatten them and cut out the feet as shown in the photo.
Roll a 60 g ball of yellow 50/50 FP/SP mix. Form a round-ish egg shape and flatten it. Use a ball tool to make indentations for the eyes. Roll two 7 mm balls of white flower paste (size depends on the depth of the indentation: check size before applying glue). Stick them in the indentations. Roll out a bit of black flower paste very thin. Flip it to the other side for 2-3 mins. Flip it back to the other side. Cut out two 5 mm circles and stick them on the eyes.
Roll a 3 mm ball of black flower paste. Roll a thin, narrowing towards both ends sausage. Cut it in half. Stick those both halves as eyebrows. Roll two balls of orange flower paste - 4 mm and 2 mm. Use both index fingers and thumbs to pinch and press the bigger ball to the board to create a diamond shape. Flatten its bottom to create a triangle-ish shape. Next stick the smaller ball to the bottom of the triangle and once again use both index fingers and thumbs to pinch and press the beak to the board to create a diamond shape. Stick the beak to the head.
Stick the head to the body and the smaller egg shell to the head. Roll 2 g yellow balls. Form teardrop shapes. Use a dresden tool to make marks on the wings.
You can dust the edges of the egg shells slightly to bring them out. Use the flat side of the brush and brown or grey dust.
