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.

Woodlands party

I just love the woods, it is quiet, peaceful and it energizes my soul. So I always loved the idea of a Woodlands themed birthday party. But with two boys, the chances of that just passed due to super heroes and sports. So I decided that despite the fact that they never would want a woodlands party, I will throw one for me. Silly right? But who cares, and the boys ended up loving it. There is cake and and all things nice. What kid wouldn’t love it?

The fun part about the Woodlands theme, is that it can just as well work for boys as it does for girls, or even for a baby-shower. I love the fact that you can incorporate real nature elements to add to the authenticity of the theme.

Salty carrots – kids style

I am like a kid in the sense that I honestly don’t believe that vegetables should be at a kids party. I know that there is a lot of you who would differ from me, but out of all the meals you have in a year, a party shouldn’t abide by the same rules. But busy with the Woodlands party planning, my cute little rabbit, will need a salty carrot or two.

So I’ve decided to look for another option to serve the “carrots”.
Since I absolutely love corn style crisps, and they are orange and taste yummy and… well, you get the picture. They are perfect. My favorite definitely is Nik Naks! Continue reading “Salty carrots – kids style”
