Tractor Wedding Cake Topper .....

I made this a little while ago for a bride who had seen my original tractor topper,

...... but this time I was asked for a bride and groom to be with it.

 

It was to be a surprise for her farmer husband-to-be and so I promised I would not post it until after the wedding in case he saw it and the surprise was ruined ! The big day was yesterday, so I reckon I'm pretty safe to post it now!

 

The wedding was in Wales (a long way from where we live), so I took this on the train to London where it was given to a cousin of the bride and driven to Wales. I was told it arrived intact at its destination and I'm now looking forward to seeing pictures of the cake with it in situ !

 

I'm really surprised how popular my original little tractor has been ......... I have two other possible orders for more ......... one at the end of this year and another at the beginning of 2011 !

 

Topper all modelled freehand out of fondant with added CMC, apart from the tiara which is made of wire.

The bride looks a little foreshortened in this picture but she wasn't ! I was given pictures of their outfits to copy and to give you an idea of scale, the drum is 5" across.

 

Many Congratulations Helen and Robert ....... hope you had a wonderful day !
