An Airplane Wedding Cake Topper

Share |

Airplane Cake Topper

This was a custom cake topper for a truly lovely couple! The groom had surprised his bride by proposing to her when he took her up for a ride in a red biplane. Because of this they knew they wanted to incorporate this very significant moment into their wedding somehow... But how? It was when they met Stacie Tamaki for the bride's accessories that they realized (while sitting in her showroom) she was the person who could help them incorporate their biplane as a custom cake topper.

Not only was Stacie up for the challenge, she went out and found a model plane kit, assembled the it, painted it red, added Swarovski crystal rhinestones as embellishments (at the brides request), and even coated the tail and wheels with sparkling sugar coated glitter.

Red Biplane

The clouds were made of polyester fiber fill and suspended on thin spirals of colored wire. It was a huge success, enchanting the bride, the groom and all of their guests!

Originally? The plan was to use real cotton candy for the clouds. Stacie even bought a small at-home cotton candy maker and set the topper up with the sweet treat clouds.

Unfortunately, the wedding was in February and she quickly realized that humidity and cotton candy don't mix well. Strike that. Actually she found that they mixed too well with the cotton candy absorbing the moisture out of the air. As it did, the clouds became smaller and smaller. So if you live in a dessert climate you could replicate this topper with cotton candy, but if you're coastal the fiber fill is probably best.
