I am creating this blog as a means of promoting my custom wedding cake toppers...YourTops.
It will be about weddings....more specifically about wedding cake and wedding cake toppers.
Why wedding cake toppers? I have always been attracted to figures. I played with toy soldiers and cowboy figures growing up. I have collected carved wooden French Canadian Habitant figures, Hopi Kachina dolls, German figural glass Christmas tree ornaments and have a large collection of reproduction German style Santa Claus candy containers.
I loved Santa Claus figures so much, I began making them in the late '70's. Soft sculpture figures...sewed their faces with absolutely NO sewing experience...ouch...frustrating and painful. Slowly I becan selling these figures. I began selling German glass Christmas tree ornaments. Soft sculted figures became molded chalkware Santas. I began buying old doll heads and incorporating them into angels and female figures. Molded chalkware Easter rabbits followed. I dabbled in nostalgic holiday greeting cards and novelties.
Then..it dawned on me...weddings were, in a sense, a holiday season! What could I make for weddings? I remembered our own wedding cake topper. It was a music box that played the anniversary waltz. I remember seeing it at the top of our cake...rotating...I will find and post a picture tomorrow!
