Steampunk Wedding Cake Topper

My daughter Myriam and I did a fieldtrip downtown Montreal to visit the Fresh Paint Gallery: http://freshpaintmtl.com/ and were inspired by some amazing street art inside the exhibition space, an abandoned building on Ste. Catherine Street.
Together we created this Wedding Cake Topper in a goth/steampunk style. I crafted the skulls out of polymer clay and Myriam painted them with acyrlic paint. The top hat is made of fun foam and the veil is netting. Myriam designed the figures with odds and ends from my magic suitcase and I fixed them together with wire. This one-of-a-kind topper is available for sale in my Etsy shop: http://www.heatherboyd.etsy.com…but maybe not for long!

All in the family!

We were very happy to be included in the wedding celebration for Marc’s nephew Bruno and his wife Elizabeth. We had a wonderful time and I really enjoyed seeing one of my toppers on an actual cake! This design was an evolution of my stick figures wedding cake topper. Thank you Marie-Lou for the great shots of the cake!
This design is now availble in our Etsy shop: http://www.heatherboyd.etsy.com

New mixed media cake topper


In honour of Marc’s nephew’s wedding I created a new design with wire and other materials. The veil is made with white net and embellished with pearls. The bowtie is made with black felt threaded through a black bead. The fabric were purchased at Michael’s Craft Store. I am open to suggestions for custom cake toppers. This design was originally just wire, but the mother-of-the-groom wanted to add some fushia flowers.
