Bride in Progress

I’m working on a new bird cake topper today for Alice. We had a chat about her wedding colors, style and vibe, then I pulled together materials and started work. The bride is a dotted-swiss confection with a very lovely tail, shown above.

new cake topper materials

Here are the materials I pulled together, left to right: The dotted-swiss fabric, some cotton for an added layer, dotted navy ribbon, lace, navy cotton for the groom, assorted floral sprays, velvet vintage leaves (that still have the “JAPAN” tag on them…love that) some blue feathers that aren’t going to be used after all, and assorted stamen.
