A wedding cake just isn’t complete without a proud bride and groom standing on top. There are of course plenty to choose from as with most things to do with weddings, but a personalised cake topper is a great way to add a special touch to the day and always makes a great talking point among your guests. So, today I introduce Shantel’s Cake Toppers, and here’s what she had to say to us;


Q: Tell us a little bit about Shantel’s Cake Toppers and how you got started.

I first started up my business back in 2011 when my husband and I decided to re-new our wedding vows. I was looking into buying a cake topper, when I decided it would be quite fun to make it myself! My first one was awful, but with a little practice and patience they have vastly improved. I’m still learning new techniques and thinking of new ideas now, 4 years later!


Q: What has been your most bizarre request for a cake topper and why?

I once had an enquiry from a lady who wanted a ‘divorce cake topper’ She wanted herself on the top of the cake, looking down at her marine ‘ex’ at the bottom of the cake – as if he’d fallen! I didn’t waste much time telling her this wasn’t something I wanted to be associated with – there was no way I would make something quite so disturbing! I’ve had many other requests which I have been happy to make including the Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower, bride and groom in a hot air balloon – even a groom giving the bride a piggy back, and a bride holding a groom in her arms!


Q: How long does it take you to make a cake topper?

A ‘standard’ cake topper usually takes about a week at the most. I don’t work all the time, I have to fit it in around other things, and I also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so I have to pace myself.


Q: What advice can you pass on to our Brides to Be when it comes to planning their wedding day? (It can be anything).

Some very simple advice I would pass on to a bride to be is this:


 ”Always kiss hello and goodbye, even if you’re mad at each other!”



Q: What’s been your biggest achievement to date? (It doesn’t have to be wedding related).

My biggest achievement to date would be starting up my own cake topper business, and sticking at it when things were tough. And of course, I couldn’t have done it without my husbands help :)


Q: How do Brides to Be go about getting one of your amazing cake toppers?

Brides to be can find me on where they will find all the information and examples they need.


Such amazing works of art! Of course your wedding cake will more than likely appear in your wedding album and be one of your stand out memories with one of these stunningly detailed cake toppers stood on top! Please pop over to Shantel’s Facebook page if you want to see more examples of her talented work and of course if you want to get one for yourself or someone else you know is getting married!
