True Love is in the Air!

True love really is all around...as is evidenced by all the weddings scheduled for 2010! I've been busy finishing up custom cake toppers and figured while I was at it I'd make a brand new one...one that I would want for my own wedding (which is still a couple of years away I think). I've always had a soft spot in my heart for deer...they were always around in the woods and fields surrounding the house I grew up in and also because my middle name is Fawn. So I thought a buck and doe cake topper would be just darling! It's for sale now in my Etsy shop.

The rest of these toppers are destined for cakes around the country, and even one in England!

Who would have guessed that a bear and a hen could wed? Well...in the world of whimsy, anything is possible!

Some people think rats are icky...but this is the second custom rat topper I've done! This cute couple will soon be having tea and crumpets with the wedding party!

The "birds in a tree topper" is a favorite and they're so fun to make! Red blossoms and pearls were added to match a sweet gal's wedding theme.

Same here...citrus colored leaves and navy pin stripe wings are in order for this topper.

I just finished this one today for a nice young couple down south. It doubles as a keepsake box too!

Lastly, this topper is for a very special friend. Happy wedding day!


On another note...I wanted to thank everyone who bid on the Hope for Haiti ebay auction. The ending bid was more than I had anticipated and I am overjoyed to be able to donate such a generous amount to the Red Cross for Haiti relief. They are still in our hearts as are our Haitian friends and neighbors who have family in the rubble. Thank you again. :)

You've certainly captured the spirit of the month of February! The cake toppers are fabulous--my favorite is the last one--for your special friend.

If I had it to do all over again, I'd marry my husband, but we'd have that bird in the tree cake topper.
