So, I've done lots of cupcake toppers (which i now describe as a cake topper - for cupcakes), So a couple of weeks ago i got the opportunity to try a cake topper - custom-ordered to fit the bride and groom. (He's a hunter, the shotgun is no indication of the state of the marriage. :). They are made mostly of a 50/50 mix of fondant and gum paste - just like playing with play-dough. (Well, almost anyway).
