Hey Peeps! I was going through some old posts tonight... updating, deleting, and cleaning house when I came upon these Farm Animals Cupcake Toppers Tutorials!
I made these four tutorials way back in 2012 so I suspect many of my current readers have never seen them! Soooo... just to get them back "out there", I thought I'd write a new post linking to all of the tutorials just in case one of you lovely cakers out there has a farm-themed party coming up!
Personally it feels like I haven't done a farm cake in awhile (it seems like forever), but I actually did this little one back in May! Isn't it cute?!
Okay, I'm getting off track! So, for each of the four animals (pigs, chicks, sheep and cows), I have a step-by-step picture tutorial plus links to any and all of the tools you'll need to make them!
And truly, these are so easy to make and yet, very cute and impressive! I use homemade marshmallow fondant for all of the toppers I made, but to make things easier, you could absolutely use store-bought fondant (such as Satin Ice) to make things even easier!
So here they are:

- How to Make Fondant Chick Cupcake Toppers
- How to Make Fondant Sheep Face Cupcake Toppers
- How to Make Fondant Cow Face Cupcake Toppers
Just click through each of those links to find the individual tutorials and be sure to PIN THEM for later! Here's a pinnable pic (I don't think pinnable is a word... haha!):
Now if you're here, I assuming you're looking for farm-themed sweets, so here are a few others I've done (click the link below the photos for all the details!):
A Barnyard Party with a Red Barn Cake, Farm Animal Cake Pops and Farm Animal Cupcakes!

Farm Themed Cake with a Tractor Cake Topper
and my very popular Tractor Cake - complete with tutorial!
I adore your farm animal cupcake toppers! When my daughter were young, I had a farm themed birthday party for her and what a cute addition they would have been. (Along with all the other farm themed sweets featured!)
How much black fondant did you use for these? I’m looking at a package of 4 oz fondant and wondering how far that goes?
I made these many years ago so I don't remember but it really depends on how many cupcakes you'll be making, how thin you roll the fondant, etc. If you're only making one or two dozen and you're mixing the animals, I would think 4oz. would be enough.
