How to make fondant antlers

This is going to be sweet and short (no pun intended)
Since we are busy prepping for the boys hunting party, I needed some antlers to place on top of the cake. So today I’m showing you how to make fondant antlers.

Fondant antlers make the perfect cake topper for a Hunting or Woodlands party

To make it stronger and give the antlers structure, I’ve used some wire. Unfortunately the wire was a bit thick or I’m simply not strong enough to twist the one around the other. What do you do? Get out the good old trusty glue gun!

I’ve cut the pieces I needed and bend them a bit to give the desired shape. I then placed them together and glued them together till all the pieces made up the antler shape.

I know, the glue of the glue gun is not safe for human consumption, but even for that I’ve made a plan. I took out the aluminium foil and covered the whole frame with the foil.

So now it is safe and time to get the fondant on them. I use sore bought fondant for all my cakes simply because it safes me a lot of time as a working mom. But I’m sure you can safe some money by making your own fondant (will have to give it a try some day!)

The hardest part comes now. Waiting for the fondant to dry so you can paint it. It ended up that I didn’t have any brown paint or food coloring. I’ve decided since it’s not really a color I use often, I will use some of the melted chocolate that was hanging around the kitchen where I’m busy making the chocolate antlers for the marshmallow deers.

I must admit. I am really happy with the result and the kids and adults were all very impressed with my antlers. This could also work well with my Woodlands themed party where I’ve used the same basic log cake.

Little cardboard baskets

While busy planning the Red Riding Hood party, I needed a snack basket to fit with the theme. That is, without breaking the bank! So I thought, why not make some out of cardboard. It should be easy right? Wrong!! The tutorials I found online was difficult and time consuming. So I needed to find another plan. I just had to design my own little cardboard baskets.
