I've been meaning to post this! I'm sorry it took me so long to those I promised pictures.
Anyway.. here it is! An Arabic wedding topper! I love the idea..it's definitely unique! Trust me when I say you can't find them anywhere else.. I looked!!! I made these for someone else. It took me approx. two weeks to complete, and I tried using just about every material I could get my hands on (gum paste, paper mache, plaster of paris, etc.). After the fourth try I came up with my own mix of mainly cardboard and clay.
Close up of the letters. They still look nicer than the pics :)
This is on a red velvet cake!
