- Step by step process for making standing toppers via a snowman!
Who will be teaching?
Maria Yebra is a self-taught passionate baker and cupcake maker, if there is such a title… She started caketopping as a hobby by doing cupcakes for friends’ parties and soon she had baked her way through all the cake recipe books in her library. Then she discovered fondant and how much fun is it, just like playing with playdough when you were little. She has molded everything from Star Wars toppers to bulldogs, dragons, elephants and even memo notes. Maria also runs a cupcake blog where she posts about her latest fondant/cupcake creations.
