Polymer Clay Cake Toppers

We often send out regular orders to our customers, but our curiosity was piqued when we began to receive an order every Tuesday for polymer clay from customer Cheryl Locke.  Julie (who is an important member of our sales team here, and will often answer your calls) decided to investigate Chery's email address which included the word 'artlockedesigns'.

After a quick google, Julie discovered that Cheryl is a talented artist, specialising in custom-made polymer clay Wedding Cake Toppers.  Each delightful keepsake is created to replicate not just the wedding dress, hair-styles, and wedding bouquets, but also to reflect the personalities of the bride and groom by incorporating other items such as pets, football scarves, musical instruments and squash raquets.
 
If you go to Cheryl's website you can browse her photo galleries full of previous master pieces, and if you look below you will see the cake topper that Julie had made for her daughter Carly's wedding in August 2014.  This special gift was ordered months in advance to fit into Cheryl's busy schedule and to ensure all the details were exactly right. 

After more than 12 months of planning, we can report that newly weds John and Carly had a wonderful day - and congratulations to Julie on gaining another son!

Cheryl Locke incorporates an incredible amount of detail into her polymer clay cake toppers.  As we have the advantage of knowing John and Carly personally, we can confirm that this is an accurate representation of the couple on how they looked on the day, even down to the colour of the flowers and the whiskers on his chin!
