I didn’t want the topper to be too heavy, that is why I decided to put a styrofoam ball inside. I used a 5 cm styrofoam ball and 160 g of mint blue sugarpaste. I kneaded ¼ teaspoon of CMC into the paste to speed up the drying (your sugarpaste might require a different amount of CMC). Don’t add too much CMC because you will have difficulties smoothing and blending the paste. If you add too little CMM, the tail will keep on falling down instead of staying up.
