Rainbow Umbrella Cake Topper

These super-cute umbrella toppers can be decorated in any way you like and are guaranteed to bring a smile, even on the rainiest of days.

For this step-by-step, I'll be showing you how to make the rainbow fade umbrella. It's best to make these in stages. So, create the umbrella shape and cover the cocktail stick (steps 1-4), then leave until the paste has hardened before you move on to the next steps.

You will need the following:

Gum paste (flower paste) 8 x coloured dusts & brushes to apply

Cocktail sticks


Circle cutter 11cm Circle cutter 5cm

Circle cutter 1.5cm Cupcake foam dome / polystyrene ball or similar (for drying) Fine paintbrush & a little water

Rolling pin
