Winter Wedding

Posted on: October 1st, 2015 by Kate Elford No Comments

I love the idea of a winter wedding, it conjures up images of crisp white snow, roaring log fires and a lovely magical white sparkle over everything!

Snowflake Wedding Cake

This beautiful cake ticks all the white sparkle theme, including silver snowflakes, it’s so pretty.

This Christmas topper was made just as a Christmas ornament! It could be used for a cake topper, but was made just to sit on the fireplace.

I love this wedding cake, it is perfect for a Christmas wedding. With the red, white and gold it is such a striking design. The topper is sat on it’s own matching cake next to this one.

A popular range at Christmas is the pet toppers, a perfect gift for pet owners. A little pottery ornament of their pets, made to match, that they can keep forever.

All these cake toppers are from Atop of the tier – and all made by Kate Elford.
They can be made for weddings, special occasions, or just as a Christmas gift.

I’ve been sent these lovely photos of Nelly and Nora, the Jack Russell wedding guests!

I created mini replicas of them in clay as they were ordered for the wedding cake, here is a photo of them with the cake, including some little sheep! (sheep aren’t by me) I love the silver wedding cake with the tree ring cake base, it looks a really natural wedding theme.

Here is a lovely email sent to me from the bride and groom –

Just a quick thank you for our beautiful Nelly and Nora who looked perfect with our wedding cake – we love that we can keep them forever.

Christmas Wedding Cake Toppers

Posted on: December 15th, 2014 by Kate Elford 3 Comments

I have been looking through old photos of wedding toppers today and thought I’d share a few of the Christmas themed cake toppers. I love Christmas ……maybe a little bit too much! It is my favourite time of year and it must be so exciting to plan a wedding at the time of year that is already full of sparkle and glitter. I love the Christmas wedding themes that have been added to cake toppers over the years, snow, snowball fight, little footprints in the snow, robins, Santa hats glitter and more.

Wedding Cake Flowers

I love the use of flowers on wedding cakes, I think it gives a really elegant look.

This is a photo of a cake topper sent to me from a happy customer, showing a topper and flowers on the cake.

It is a fireman cake topper on a tired cake with the flowers wrapped around, I think it looks beautiful.

Gretna Green

There have been a few requests for Gretna Green cake toppers this year.

Pictured here is one in white and one in purple so it can match the colour scheme.
The topper pictured on the cake is a lovely story which is told here in the review kindly left by Fiona

‘Thank you so much for our beautiful cake topper of Gretna Green sign and the anvil. It went on top of our cake along with a Christmas spray and we had been married several days earlier and everyone thought they were coming to a pre-Christmas party!
It will now be a perfect keepsake of our special day.’

I think that is such a lovely story and a great surprise for friends and family.

The signpost toppers don’t have t be Gretna Green and an anvil, it can be made with any wording or accessory that suits you, they can be ordered from
