Super Sweet!

Hi everyone its time for a new 

and I am so excited to share my project this week

The sponsor of this challenge is at AYLI is My Mum's Craft Shop

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Sweet or Savoury (& why).

Normally I would say my favourite is savoury but I have a sweet tooth too!

My (Now) Daughter in law ask me if I would be able to make the cake Topper
for their wedding cake, she had seen one at a wedding and sent me a photo
I tried to find a pattern but they were all very expensive to buy with huge shipping cost to buy
or the patterns were not available to download, so I set about practicing and tried making up a pattern myself from a selection of patterns I found that were similar so I will link the patterns I found that helped me, Magic Cinderella + Enfeites-de-natal
I really wanted to make this so special as the Bride is not only the now wife of my Step son but she has become a very close friend and I love them both to bits!

So here they are...
On top of the cake

And some Photos my Son took at home for me

And here's a close up of that I took myself

and here is the Gorgeous Happy Couple
Love them both so much!
