I have seen some brilliant cake toppers in my time and the quirkier the better! Some of the best i have seen have been the ones that are the replica’s of the couple. I was doing my usual browsing through Facebook and Twitter and i came across these really cute ones from Ana’s Adorable Crafts. Based in Dublin, she does a wide range of cake toppers for all occasions and not just weddings. I got in touch and asked her for a bit more information to pass to you guys!
The toppers are 100% handmade which i couldn’t believe. There are a lot that are machine made or are a mix of produced mould and then hand painted. From what i could tell, Ana is a bit of a perfectionist and loves to get all of the small details right. They take apx 20 days between order, production and delivery. To look at them you would think that they are heavy but they are made from foam so they are light and wont damage a cake. She uses a small bit of fabric as well but again, the pieces are really light. They last forever due to them being made of foam….if they fall on the floor, all may not be lost! They are a little taller than the normal ones that you can get on the market. The price works out at about €60 plus postage and packaging. This covers a piece with a couple. If there are some additional extras needed they are charged as extra but within the €60 you should see most covered. It may seem like a big investment for a cake topper but this isn’t just for one day, you can keep this as a keep sake plus it makes for a nice gift to give the bride and groom if you are in the wedding party!
