Can you roll a ball? Can you roll a log? Then you can build amazing characters to top your cakes!!! Anyone can make fun creatures to adorn any sweet treat, and have a lot of fun while doing it!
I’ll start here: I am not a sculptor. I have never created a character before I began designing the user experience for Wilton 3D Characters. After many hours of watching our professional decorators break down the process, I realized it was pretty basic. Roll a ball. Squish the ball. Form the squished ball into an oval. Oh, wow! I just made the owl’s wing!
After months of developing and testing illustrations to show you exactly how to create these characters, Wilton has come up with a system that you are bound to enjoy!
To explain how fun and easy this really is, I decided to make a pair of owls to help illustrate what I’m talking about. The owl’s head? Roll a ball.
Roll the ball into a slight log. Pinch the log at the ends to create ears. Oh, wow! I just made the owl’s head!
Keep following the Wilton Method instructions and you will end up with two amazing little owls! With each step your character evolves and comes alive. Each addition to the character adds a little something extra.
I love that each and every character has its own charm, and that no two characters are exactly alike! Look at my two owls, they are not twins, but are definitely related! Go ahead and mix up the colors to coordinate with your theme. I think it came out pretty cute, don’t you?
I promise, Wilton will walk you through every step of the process – leaving you with confidence that you can do this! What characters will you top your cakes with?
