Animal Christmas decorations and people figures for cake decorations

Every year my friend requests a different wild animal species for the tree, they also have a chameleon and a bittern. The mice were made for a wedding cheese stack (whole round cheese tower) they had instead of a cake.

I’ve also made friends wedding cake decorations. Bride and groom in the same style as my automata. sorry about the poor quality image. It was a chocolate cake – you can see that by the marks on the figures.

The last one is for a birthday cake. He’s looks a bit suprised to be made out of wood and stood on cake, but that’s better than looking a bit angry.

You should make an automated Christmas tree, with little critters popping in and out like a cuckoo clock! I’m rushing to finish my last ornament before the holidays. Merry Christnmas!

Mice for a wedding cake or cheese tower- what a great idea for a rustic wedding theme!

These are just terrific Wanda! The mice are my favorite too. They remind me of that donkey. Your ability to characterize these critters is simply amazing. Love ‘em. Always look forward to seeing more…
