You may have wondered why updates to the Blog were a little slow last month. One of the reasons was that I was 'press-ganged' into producing this Wedding Cake Topper by my daughter Holly, who was bridesmaid at Kate's wedding.
The plan was to build the figures out of icing sugar but the tight deadline meant that this would have been almost impossible as icing sugar figures need a longer period to harden-off. I built this Bride and Groom from DAS modelling clay over metal and wooden manikins and mounted them to a plastic card base - the benefit of such a construction is that this cake topper should last.
The couple were painted with acrylic paints and matt varnished. The two guinea pigs were sculpted by Holly.
Congratulations and best wishes to Kate and Tom.
