Bride and groom wedding cake toppers

When it comes to personalising a wedding cake there is probably no more spectacular way than to model a bride and groom to resemble the happy couple. There are many approaches you could take to this, however after modelling many brides and grooms from sugar Lindy would recommend that you try using Artista soft – a very versatile  modelling medium  that can create a permanent reminder of a special day.

A wonderful memento of a couples big day

“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 used to 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. Today I  no longer have time to make these fascinating characters, however once a year I run a two day workshop for brides and cake decorators to learn the art of modelling wedding couples from Artista.”  Lindy
