Hey guys! So if you saw my last post about the Sugar Dress, then it’s easy to see why I am in love with these FlexFrost sheets from Icing Images. If not, you can check that out here: http://ediblesugarart.com/soflo-cake-and-candy-expo/ They are so versatile and can be used in so many ways. So today I scaled down the Sugar Dress onto a itty bitty baby and made a christening gown and matching cupcake toppers.
This was so easy and fun to do. The baby molds I use are from First Impressions Molds. If you want a baby to come out looking pretty, order from the source and not a knock off! Otherwise your babies face might be jacked! 🤷♀️ I dust the hair with Roxy & Rich color dust and sometimes add a little pink on the cheeks.
I cut a 4” strip longwise of FlexFrost and I creased the edges and sealed them over with water. Like a hem on a dress. Then I started to accordion fold the strip pinching the top and fanning out the bottom.
Use a little water or edible glue on the back of the baby and apply the punched end. Press it down and use a little more water to “melt” blend the pinched end smooth on the baby.
Cut a square to use for the back of her dress and notch out arm holes and trim around her neck area. Use a little water to adhere it to her.
Next, use your rose gold FlexFrost and cut 4 strips. Place to down the back of the dress. Add a drop of water to the center of the third strip and bring the opposite two ends into the center to make the bow. Use the fourth strip to wrap around the center. Apply it at the top where the two strips on her dress meet.
Cut out a strip for a headband and apply it with a small drop of water. I used a paper punch for the center flower and cross. These come in so many shapes and sizes.
For the cupcake toppers, just roll out some fondant and cut using a scalloped edge cookie cutter. I used another lace paper punch. There are so many styles of craft punches now that you can really personalize your topper. I used a little water to attach it to the fondant. Then finished it up with another flower and cross.
