Personalised Cake Topper

Cake topper

I loved making this personalised cake topper, it has lots of little details to make it personal to the bride and groom. 

Kilt wedding cake topper

The bride is wearing a short style wedding dress. I have only made a few shorter wedding dresses over the years, and this is a beautiful dress. The bride also is wearing brown boots, which look fantastic with the dress. The groom is wearing a black laced shirt, with a kilt and sporran. They have a great style for their wedding and this really shows in the cake topper.

Cat Cake Topper

The bride and groom also wanted their cats included on the cake topper, and to add a wedding theme to the cats they are all wearing little bow ties! A lovely touch, very simple and effective. Pets are a popular addition to the toppers, and the colours and markings are all matched.

Wedding Cake Ideas

Posted on: February 23rd, 2017 by Cake Toppers No Comments

I was sent these lovely photos this week, of a wedding topper on the cake, and had to share the amazing wedding cake idea.
The top tier is a traditional white iced cake with a cake topper, and the base is a fantastic stack of doughnuts. I absolutely love the idea and I’m guessing it was a big talking point on their wedding day.

A little bit more of what I do…

I thought I would share a little bit more of what I do.
I make and paint fun pictures and ceramics and I have put them out for the world to see on Etsy!
It did feel like a scary step to start with, but having reached a milestone birthday (eek) I wanted a new challenge.
Toppers are and will always be my number one, but it’s also lovely to get back to painting….penguins!

Birthday Cake Topper

Here are some lovely photos sent to me of a 60th birthday cake topper. I used the photo that is also on the cake to work from. It was a lovely design to make complete with bench and two dogs.

The customer had also previously commissioned a wedding topper as well, and it is always a huge compliment to have multiple orders from the same person.

This topper is from Atop of the tier –
