Making our new Strohblume Custom Cake Toppers

As I was designing our newest cake topper I wanted to incorporate hand-painting and flower colors to match each wedding, but also make it affordable. I was inspired by the german word "Strohblume" which means everlasting flower. The circle is an eternal design, so I started from there and adorned the design with intricate floral detail. The calligraphy feels like it is part of the design, but also allows for short and long surnames.

I asked our team to try it in a variety of materials, and we really loved how the paint looks with baltic birch wood. Then we tried it in mirror acrylic, and WOW! It's sophisticated and delicate at the same time. I can't decide which I prefer, they each look beautiful in person, and are as unique as flowers themselves.

You don't have to decide which is your favorite, we'll create one as unique as your love. :)
