Fab Find: Paper Cake Toppers

Things have changed so much over the last ten years when it comes to weddings, parties and cakes.  The only rule is that there are no rules!  Anything goes and it’s all about incorporating your own personal style into the event.  That includes the cake and yes, even the cake topper!

That’s why we love these handmade paper cake toppers from Concarta.  Each and every sculpture is hand crafted using acid free paper, a variety of cutting tools, and archival quality glue.  Whether your style is traditional, trendy or preppy, every last detail of your wedding ensemble will be captured in these darling cake toppers.  From the dress and veil to his tuxedo and tie, even the bride’s hair and bouquet!  The artistry in each creation is simply amazing!

A few thoughts from Gwen, the talented artist behind these cake toppers, about her inspiration and creation process:

“I just love paper and find it to be an inherently elegant material with an incredible range.  I do particularly enjoy making the dresses, as each one is different and requires an approach tailored to its specific details.  Some dresses can be “draped”, while for others, I engineer little flat patterns with appropriately placed “seams”.  A lot of the work is simply putting in the necessary time and patience – making tiny riffles, making tiny ruffles and then turning those tiny ruffles into flowers and THEN applying those ruffled flowers to a dress in a particular pattern…sometimes there are a lot of steps!

Aren’t they too charming for words!!  I was completely entranced by all of the incredible paper toppers on the Concarta Blog.  Hop on over and spend a minute (or hour) browsing these amazing creations.  Brides, you can purchase them at the Concarta Etsy Shop.  Enjoy!

    I have seen these done out of fondant/gumpaste, but I’m thinking actual paper would be much easier and you wouldn’t have to worry about their arms or heads breaking off. I’m off to visit Concarta now. :)
