I didn't make these beauties; my incredibly talented friend Amber did. Amber and I met at while we were both selling at the Freret Market back in October. I instantly fell in love with her gorgeous little figures and asked if I could commission her to do my cake toppers. She agreed!
Amber and I both have Etsy stores so we sent messages back and forth with updates. I started off by sending her a picture of Nate and I and a sketch I did of what I was picturing based on her work. I wanted them to look some what like Nate and me and I included what I decided out distinguishing facial features would be.
After she had the pieces all built up with the air drying clay she uses, she sent me an update with the raw forms.
I squealed with excitement, told her I loved them and she got to painting. When she had them all painted up she sent me this update and asked if I wanted the crackle glaze.
I had a small heart attack of excitement and I said yes, crackle them! We made arrangements for me to pick them up. Once I had them in my possession, I had a photo shoot with them on my kitchen counter.
Could they be any cuter?! I don't think so. Amber did a fantastic job and I can't wait to have them sitting a top my cake come October. To check out more of Amber's work, mosey on over to her Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/amberleilani?ref=pr_shop
