I’ve done a few Little Man/Mustache themed cakes, and they work well for both baby showers and birthdays, especially if you change up the colors. He’s a set of cakes that were similar, but the difference is number of tiers, and the fact that one is covered in buttercream, and one is covered in fondant.
The featured cake above was a three-tier, 4″, 6″ over 8″ covered entirely in fondant, with fondant suspenders. My talented client, who’s enjoys paper crafting, created the bow tie with fabric, and the mustache topper with a glittery foam core board. I thought it looked awesome! I think it’s great when clients create their cake toppers, because they can keep them (instead of eat them), and they can get the design exactly how they want it.
This was a two-tier, 6″ over 8″, both covered in buttercream with fondant suspenders, bow tie, and mustache topper. Below is a repost from Instagram of the client’s awesome setup. Love this chic blue & gray color palette!
