This family Wedding cake topper was a surprise present to the couple from the maid of honor. Please take no notice of the young boy with a beard, apparently it’s a family joke! It just shows how you can add personal details into the design.
Rather than just posting a picture of the final design, I thought it might be a nice idea to show the different stages of how the caricatures cake toppers are hand modeled.
When I make sugar caricatures, I always work from a detailed description for each character.
I always start by making the heads as this will determine the size of the body. Facial features are important as they help tell the story and bring characters to life.
Clothing can be chosen or matched to the same worn on the day of your wedding.
They are completely bespoke and can be designed accordingly to your requirements, from the traditional right through to hobbies as well as creating a story between the characters. These can be as creative as your imagination, For inspiration take a look at some of my other cake toppers.
Toppers can be made onto a plaque or with skewers in the bottom; this makes it easy to insert them straight into the top of your cake. Making them completely food safe as well as extremely stable on top of the cake.
