Princess Tiara Tutorial

Today I am sharing how I make an edible gumpaste Princess Tiara to use as a cake topper.

You will need the following:

A clay extruder with the large round disc.
A tiara template ( I found one online and printed it out )
Wax paper
A ball of 80% gum paste and 20% fondant

Lay a piece of wax paper over your template and tape to your table.

Start piping your fondant /gum paste mix.
I lay my bottom line first.

Then I pipe the swirls.

Once you have your template covered, joint the seams by brushing with some water.

Working quickly, this stuff dries out FAST lay your tiara over a cylinder to shape it as it dries. I used a shortening container this time, I have used oatmeal canisters, fondant pails, anything I can find usually.

 Let this dry a day or 2, then very gently peel back the wax paper and let the backside of the tiara dry for a day.

Once that has dried , add your bling. I used Silver Dragees, you can use any sugar gem you can find.

and here it is.

I know, some of you are thinking , " that doesn't look like the one in the tutorial, what's going on?"
You are correct! This is not the one I made in the tutorial.
This one is

This is what happens when your 3 year old decides he wants to be a princess.

You end up having to make another and hoping it dries in time to deliver your cake...fortunately it did!
