I made the following cake toppers for a friend's wedding..I wanted to give her several options!
1. Champagne corks, with painted bodies and fabric acccessories.
2. Wine corks: sculpey heads pierced onto a needle and then baked (the groom was painted after baking). The needle is then inserted to the cork to join.
3. Handsculpted likeness of the couple (they ended up being too big and heavy to put on a cake, though!) Sculpey formed around a bamboo skewer for stabilization. Painted after baking.
