Swallows Cake Topper

A few weeks ago I blogged about one of the gifts that I’d made for my sister’s wedding and I mentioned then that I had also made a cake topper as a surprise… This is what it looked like!

My sister loves tattoos and has so many that we now lovingly refer to her as Doodle bear! Because of her love of tattoos, the swallows (which are a traditional tattoo) were used in a few places for the wedding, such as on the invitations.

So when our Mum mentioned that Jess had run out of time to sort out a cake topper I thought I’d have a go at making some swallows for her. I made them from clay and then painted them with acrylic paints in the same colours that were used in the wedding stationary. I later heard that my sister had mentioned wanting a swallow cake topper but didn’t think you’d be able to get one… Then make one!
