Check... Cake Topper
Hip, Hip, Hooray! Yesterday during our Sunday ride, we happened by an interesting store in downtown Dover NH. Well, low and behold we stopped (I only had to ask once!), it was a good thing we did because this is where we found our fabulous cake toppers! I really wanted a unique cake topper and kept playing around with the idea of spending a fortune on one or trying to make one. Well, for $3.50 each (grand total of $7 for those of you keeping track) I just couldn't pass these ceramic love birds without thinking, "cake toppers!"
I think these birdies were probably made for sticking into plant pots, the dowel is a foot long. I'm not sure if I will have to cut them down a bit to make them sit flush on the cake, but the length of the dowel will support the weight of the bird so this piece lends itself nicely to it's re purposed life!
If you're ever in the New Hampshire area, I definitely recommend you stop into Blue Moon on Central Street in Dover. They specialize in fair trade items, antiques, and wares from local artisans. They had a nice variety of things for sale and a lot of eye candy. The prices were good and the sales woman was friendly and professional- really pleasant to speak with.
