Custom Clay Cake Toppers & Keepsakes for Any Occasion
You need a cake topper for a very special upcoming occasion. A cake topper that is unique, full of detail, that will become a treasured keepsake long after the celebration is over. And maybe you're looking for someone who can design exactly what YOU have in mind. Something even, well, a bit unusual. Because, we both know if you wanted a typical bride and groom cake topper, you could buy a plastic one at your local retail store. And you can look, but I'll bet you can't find a wedding cake topper of your favorite video game characters or one of your husband in his lab coat with his wire-rimmed glasses holding a beaker for his graduation cake (yes, I DID make those...you can see them in my Photo Gallery).
A polymer clay cake top
per can be completely custom designed and personalized. Attention to detail is what I love and specialize in. Whether it's for a child's birthday, adult's birthday, high school or college graduation, bridal shower, wedding, anniversary, baby shower, retirement party, or religious celebration, placing one of these custom pieces on any cake adds that personal touch that will amaze you and your guests! Once the celebration has ended, the cake topper will be a memorable keepsake for a lifetime. It can be put inside a display case or simply on its own on a shelf, a desk, mantel, or in a curio cabinet and enjoyed every day.
No molds are used when I sculpt my creations. They are molded by my hands and clay tools. Attaching non-clay accessories always adds interest to a piece. Tulle, buttons, beads, feathers, wire, toothpicks, Swarovski crystals, and acrylic gems are some of the items I use. Each project I work on requires several hours of sculpting before it is placed in a standard oven for curing. Then additional time is spent gluing on the accessories, if necessary, or adding a glaze to areas that require a sheen. When items are ready to ship, they are wrapped carefully in lots of bubble wrap and tissue paper and boxed in large boxes with lots of soft packing materials to protect the clay during shipping.
