Can now put up the toppers I made for Sharon and Nick as their wedding day has come and gone.  I don't show any of my figurines until after the wedding because I would hate to be the one to spoil the surprise of what the bride's outfit looks like.  Plus of course a lot of grooms also like to keep their outfits a secret until the big day. 

I hope Sharon and Nick had a truly magical wedding day and I shall now look forward to hearing about it and seeing photographs of their big day.

Have just had a lovely two weeks break from toppers and not ashamed to admit that it was nice to not be at my craft table during that time.  I used the time to catch up on a moutain of paperwork and even managed to get away for a few days to Portland Bill in Weymouth. 

Now its time to dust off the cobwebs from my crafting table and get back into making those personalied cake toppers. 

I have a range of different ones do to over the next couple of months including a tractor, a sailing boat, a double decker bus, a horse and a motorbike- plus numerous dogs and cats.  Thankfully every set of toppers I make are different and totally unique to each couple - this makes it a lot more fun for me to do as would not like to make the same figurines day in, day out.

Below are just a few of the toppers I have done over the past months, most of them I could not post until after the wedding had taken place - as we all know the bride's dress is top secret and I would hate to be the one that spoilt the element of surprise from her partner and wedding guests.

Another New Year

Well 2012 certainly came at me with a huge whoooosh!! Not sure where 2011 went to but I was kept pretty busy not only with the crazy wedding rush over May to November but we also moved house and I reached the grand old age of 60!  Once I would been a pensioner but with the government moving the goalpost wider they have decided that I wont be one now until I have 61 and 5 months old and they will then let me have my pension, free bus pass and heating allowance!  something to look forward to in June 2013 then...

The personalised toppers I was commissioned to make in 2011 were really unique and a couple made me blink when I was reading just what it was they wanted to have on top of their wedding cakes.. but each to their own and at least the out of the ordinary toppers were totally unique to each couple.. just as it should be!

Here are just a few of them to show you what kept me busy.
