Custom Order Christmas Elf Cake Topper

Standard

So this cute Christmas Elf cake topper is the latest creation from my craft room.  The cake topper was sculpted by hand in Premo polymer clay.  This one was a custom order for a customer in Australia and he will be the centerpiece on top of her Christmas cake.  I’m honored whenever one of my creations takes center stage!

This was a really fun project and has certainly gotten me into the holiday spirit (even though it’s not quite Halloween yet- LOL).  This whimsical elf was my first cake topper outside of World of Warcraft characters.  I really enjoyed creating this one!  The elf wears a bright green tunic with a red collar  and belt.  His tights are striped a cheerful red and green and he wears red elf slippers.

As you can see, he’s a very happy Christmas elf, with bright blue eyes and a great big smile. 🙂

The cake topper measures about 6 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches tall to the tip of the elf’s bright red hat tipped with a gold bell.  The elf is holding a candy cane and the cake he sits on is decorated with red ribbon and red and white candies (all sculpted from polymer clay).

What a great project to start the holiday season off with!

My Latest World of Warcraft Wedding Cake Topper

Standard

I recently finished sculpting another custom World of Warcraft wedding cake topper and wanted to share some pics with my readers.  This one has an Elf as the bride and a Tauren as the groom.

WoW cake topper This piece took a LONG time to complete, but then again, these highly detailed wedding cake toppers usually do.  It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but the bride’s dress has areas that have been stamped and brushed with shimmering iridescent Pearl Ex powders, and there are several layers to the dress.  I think the dress took as long to make as the entire elf!WoW cake topper 6 I really spent a lot of time on the tiny details like the white flowers that are twining up the bride’s legs.  That bouquet is pretty special too.  I found a vintage earring in my jewelry stash that had (faux)  pearls, diamonds, and gold accents and I added white polymer clay roses to create a truly unique bouquet.

My customer also requested that a banner with the Horde logo was included.

That logo’s not painted on either- I cut that out of red clay and appliqued it to the black banner.  Not easy, but I think it looks better than it would have if I’d painted it.

The Tauren groom was a lot of fun to make as well.  I do believe he’s the first Tauren I’ve sculpted that didn’t have a beard.  He did have a big toothy smile though 🙂  My customer sent me lots of really good screen shots so I was able to create just what she was looking for.  When it comes to making these cake toppers good pictures of the characters are a must.

I really like the way the pose came out too.  The groom has one arm lovingly around the bride’s waist and is gently holding her other other hand- very romantic! ❤  And the pretty elf bride gazes up at her new husband with love in her eyes.  Yeah, I’m a romantic all right!  Plus I finished this shortly after I got engaged myself, so I was really feeling the love 😉

So far I’ve only had orders for World of Warcraft wedding cake toppers, but I’m quite willing to create any characters, for any occasion.   If you’re interested in having me create a cake topper for you (wedding, birthday, anniversary, or other occasion) you can place a deposit at this link or contact me at macreativecritters@gmail.com for more information.

And now onto the next project!   Stay tuned to see how my mushroom gnome house sculpture turns out- so far it’s pretty awesome!

Happy crafting my friends!
