A little bit of Valentine’s Day inspiration…

It’s that time of year again with hearts and flowers everywhere! Yes it’s almost Valentine’s Day, and if you’re still planning to make plans I hope I can help.

I always appreciate a handmade gift – both giving and receiving. So with that in mind I thought I’d share some of my older cake pictures in case it can inspire you to make something cute and fun.

Couples cake toppers

Cake toppers are a great way to add your personal touch to any cake. You can make them ahead of time and take your time to get them just right, which is great especially if you’re worried about the cake itself – it means you won’t need to rush if you run into trouble.

I prefer a slightly more cartoony style since it gives me more freedom without worrying so much about all the little details. Most of these toppers are from wedding cakes, but the same rules apply – the figurines just might be dressed a bit differently 🙂

I really love all the colours on this one and it pays homage to their ethnicity
Don’t be afraid to play around with elevation for the figurines
Hooray!

Guess who?

A lot of people find drawing and modelling people to be hard because they don’t end up looking quite right. Making some cute animal toppers is a great way to get around this.

Can you guess their job?

Hearts, hearts, and more hearts

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without too-many-hearts so here’s a couple of cake designs with a lot of heart.

I hope that helps if you’re planning to make a cakey Valentine’s Day happen for you and your loved one. If you feel inspired by these pictures and make something, feel free to share it with me!
