Binky Baby ~ Fondant Pacifier Tutorial

Approximately 370,000 babies are born worldwide each day, so it comes as no surprise that one of my most common inquiries is the fondant pacifier topper! They make the perfect embellishment for baby shower treats and are rather simple to make. And the best part is that they are not gender specific!

I’m super excited to share this tutorial because, not only is it such a popular request, it’s one of the tutorials featured in my upcoming book! The official release date is scheduled for April 2014, but pre-sales will begin very soon! Please make sure you are following here on the blog {you can sign up for an e-mail newsletter here on the right sidebar}, as well as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the updates.

Fondant Pacifier Tutorial

Cutters Needed:

  • ⅞-inch round cutter

Pacifier Tutorial ~ Lynlee's

Roll out white fondant thick with the rolling pin and wooden dowels. Cut out a ⅞-inch circle with the round cutter and roll it into a ball. With your fingers, roll it into a cylinder, then narrow the bottom to form the nipple {a}.

Roll out blue/pink fondant with the rolling pin ⅛-inch thick and cut out a medium heart with the cutter. Use the large oval cutter to trim the bottom off the heart and use your fingers to round out the bottom to form the plastic disc of the pacifier. Use round tip #3 cut out 2 circles on each side of the heart towards the top and the small modeling stick to round out the inside of the hole {b}. Set both pieces aside until they are both fairly hard.

Pacifier Tutorial ~ Lynlee's

Roll out blue/pink fondant with the rolling pin ⅛-inch thick and cut out a ⅞-inch circle with the cutter. Use the bottom of one of the round tips to trim off the top of circle to form the pacifier handle. Use round tip #1 to indent little circles around the handle {a}.

Roll out white fondant thick with the rolling pin and wooden dowels and cut out a circle with the bottom of a round tip. Round it out a bit, then shape it into a rectangle. Use the small modeling stick to make holes on each side of the rectangle (lengthwise) {b}. Apply glue to the inside of the holes and around one end of the rectangle, then insert the 2 tips of the blue/pink handle.

As soon as the pacifier nipple and disc are hard enough, glue them together, then glue the handle to the opposite side {c}. Allow to dry thoroughly.

  1. I need your help. I am going to be a grandmother two times over. My oldest daughter is having a boy due Oct. 5, 2013 and likes the Theme of Simba from Disney The Lion King. Do you have any ideas of what I could do for his baby shower?
    My youngest daughter is due on Dec. 1, 2013 and they are planning on naming her Willow. They got married this year and had an outdoor wedding. They had an Camouflage wedding using the Mossy Oak Print with chocolate brown, bright orange, and hunter green as their colors. Now that they are having a girl they would like to use the Mossy Oak print and hot pink for her crib bedding and room decor. I could do something along those lines, or do something with the baby’s name Willow keeping in mind that she is due in Dec. Do you have any suggestions? Have you done any of these themes before?
    Please email me if you have any ideas. I would appreciate your help for some good ideas.
    Thank You,

  3. Hi,

    I was wondering how long you can keep these in an air tight container? I have my baby shower in November and would like to make and store prior if possible?

    Kind regards

    • Hi Robyn! Fondant can actually last quite a long time! I have made toppers 2-3 weeks prior to an event. Just keep in mind that if you store them in an airtight container, they might remain a bit soft, as opposed to leaving them out to dry, at which point they will be hard. It depends on your preference! :)

  4. Thank you SO MUCH! For this Binky tutorial! Got an order for a shower cake with binkys and didn’t have the slightest notion of how to start creating them. They turned out adorable! Thank you again! I’ll be posting the cake by the 13th of December if you want to take a peek. My FB is Teresa’s Oatmeal Overboard. Blessings!
