Bride & Groom, Romance & Lace

Bride & Groom (Lace) Figurines

Inspired by the photo of this bride’s exquisite lace dress for her wedding day, the groom’s elegant suit and the fun photos of this couple together, I created this Bride and Groom Sugar Paste Couple for Mandy-Lou of Annah-Fudge Gourmet Cupcakes.  After having tried every sugar paste available on our South African market for modelling faces and figurines, I am delighted to say I finally found one that is just so easy to use for modelling and that is, Zeelandia Sugar Paste. It is not quite as magnificent as the Italian modelling paste I have been privileged to use but it rushes up to the winning post as a really close 2nd.  It is beautifully pliable and does not get the cracks and quick drying out flaws that our other pastes so easily get. It also colours beautifully with gel and powder colours. A huge thank you to Kelly Jayne’s in Decor Park for stocking this wonderful paste, it has made a huge difference to the quality of my modelling work and is saving me loads of  time with it being so easy to use. No more tearing my hair out to create beautiful faces! These 2 characters perfectly show off the soft translucency of this paste for figurine work.

The Zeelandia paste was also perfect for this bride’s dress as I needed it to fall as elegantly and simply as the actual wedding dress. I draped the paste on my petite figurine and then added the lace detail of the dress by first making some lace using the Crystal Candy Midnight Garden Lace Silicone Mould and their Crystal Lace-Signature Blend. The lace mimicked the intricate details of the brides lace dress and with this lace detail I was able to capture the open lacey back of the dress with the added pearls for the button detail. No wonder this sugar bride looks so beautifully radiant and serene showing off her gorgeous dress. The sugar groom was not to be totally outshone by his bride and he is proudly wearing his long-tailed jacket and bright purple cravat and waist coat. Once again Zeelandia paste to my rescue for the soft cuff, tails and collar details of his crisp white shirt. Wishing this couple all joy and love as they begin their journey as husband and wife!

Ballet & Rock Bride & Groom!

Ballet & Rock Bride & Groom

This post is long overdue as I made this sugar couple for Rezelle and Dion who got married in a wonderfully romantic service a couple of months ago.  They chose as the theme for their wedding Ballet versus Rock as Rezelle has had a passion for ballet since she could walk and Dion is a talented musician and performer and loves his music.  It was amazing to be a part of this special couple’s wedding in making their cake topper and the wedding cupcakes and then being invited with my family to celebrate their wedding service and reception with them.  I had tremendous fun creating these two characters to resemble Rezelle and Dion and I was delighted with their reaction on seeing their wedding cake topper.  The cupcakes I made in bright and pale pastels to match the colour scheme of the day.  What awesome families you two have and how perfectly they each helped in their own way to make your day memorable.

I photographed the Ballet and Rock bride and groom as they sat comfortably on their beautiful wedding cake made for Rezelle and Dion by Sarah of Sugar Cookie Cakes.  Sarah had designed the wedding cake with a cascade of rainbow roses from the top to the bottom tier and the sugar Rezelle and Dion were a perfect topper to such a beautiful cake.  I wish you many years filled with happiness, joy, dance and music!
