Bride and groom wedding cake toppers
When it comes to personalising a wedding cake, probably the most spectacular way is to top the cake itself with a handcrafted bride and groom topper, modelled to resemble the happy couple. There are many approaches that can be taken, however after modelling many brides and grooms from sugar, Lindy now uses a wonderful lightweight, non-toxic, modelling medium called Artista Soft. This medium creates a wonderful permanent reminder of a special day, the perfect keepsake.
The happy couple:
“My first cake topper ‘bride and grooms’ were all modelled from sugar, however after a few mishaps with arms breaking and grooms falling over, I decided there had to be a better option. After some research, I starting using Artista Soft for my figures. It is not an edible product but is used by cake decorators for decorations and models that do not touch the cake. Once dried it is very light weight and virtually unbreakable, so can be easily sent through the post!
I love making toppers, you are given a very special and privileged insight into a couples big day; details of the dress, the colour scheme, the flowers etc. Over the years I have made many toppers and I find it fascinating to watch how styles of dresses and wedding trends change over time. When my first toppers were created in 2002 dresses were very simple with virtually no embellishments, today dresses are full of delightful details which I thoroughly enjoy re-creating.” Lindy
