Cake Topper
Posted: Aug 14, 2010 10:05 PM

My fiance proposed to me while canoeing. We would love to have a couple in a canoe to top our cake. I have searched everywhere, and can't find anything! Anyone know where I might be able to find this?

Dear MJ,

No, I don't know of any sources, but it sounds like a GREAT idea.

I'm picturing a cake decorated like a waterfall, with the canoe at the top. Really great. "We're taking the plunge."

Why not visit a few bakers in town and see if they have any ideas of how to get what you want? It sounds fabulous to me.

I agree with AOTB - What a great idea.

I don't know where to find one either, but I found some relatively easy directions to make one - it's dipped in wax, so it would be fine on top of a cake.

Even if you don't like this one, maybe that's the way to go. I googled 'craft canoe' and got lots of hits.

Cheers, Congrats and Good Luck - PTG!

I LOVE the idea that AOTB described! How incredibly cool!!

As for a topper, you might try Etsy.com.

Do a search on Etsy for 'Custom Cake Topper'. If you find an artist who you feel could create what you're looking for I'm sure they'd be more than happy to make you a custom order. Sounds like a cute idea!

I'm also on the search for a custom cake topper. I'm looking for a pair of realistic black capped chickadees, but haven't been able to find any online or through etsy. If you're crafty, Michael's Crafts sells small tubs of fondant. You could hand mould your own original cake topper, making it even more special becuase you created it. Plus, with only purchasing the fondant and food coloring as your materials, you can make your cake topper for less than $20! This might be the avenue I take for the chickadees since most of the etsy bird cake toppers are a little toony looking.

For the chickadees, why not look for little bird porcelain figurines? My mother recieved a pair of robins for Christmas last year and they are very realistic. You might be more successful looking for them outside of the cake topper category and maybe the same goes for the canoe?
