So I’ve just finished my first bride and groom topper and had so much fun that I thought I’d share.
The groom is 8.5 inches tall. It was worth taking the time to try to get the proportions right at the start. I used templates to make the groom’s outfit. Piping the bodice on the bride’s dress reminded me why I’m not a fan of royal icing but I love how the blush bouquet turned out.
Having a day job means there’s never enough time for my sugar art. But on a positive note, my modelling skills have got better because I spent the last two years giving myself the space to create and find my own style without the need to earn an income from it. I wouldn’t trade that freedom to grow as an artist for anything.
Sugar art will always be my passion and next year I’d like to explore some new techniques. I’m already looking forward making more happy couples!
I’ll let you know how I get on.
