Shiny Creations - Cake Toppers & Gifts

Who are you and what do you do?

Hi, I’m Helen, Creative Head and founder of Shiny Creations. Shiny Creations sells handmade unique and personal gifts. We custom make jewellery, artwork, stationery, greetings cards, cake toppers and other novelty gifts that you can’t just buy off the shelf, they are entirely designed for you.
One of my favourite things to make is our personalised wedding cake toppers. These are handmade from Fimo clay based on the photos the couple send us. Hours of work go into recreating their likenesses, the dress, the flowers, everything is painstakingly made to add that little personal touch to your big day. They are not edible, so they will last forever and make beautiful keep sakes of your special day. We’ve had couple’s contact us after the wedding telling us how everyone was raving about the cake topper the whole day. That makes me so proud.

What's your favourite wedding you've ever worked on?

It’s only when I scroll through the image gallery of Shiny Creations Facebook page that I realise the incredible range of the cake toppers we have made over the years. There was a figure skater who was marring an ice hockey player and so we made the couple tiny ice skates and a little hockey stick for their figures. There was also a Scottish couple who wanted the brides hand to be lifting his kilt to reveal a cheeky bum!
We’ve made so many unique and personalised figures for special occasions, not just weddings, but my favourite is always when I know the customer. Being able to add a personal touch to a friend’s big day is really special to me.


How would you describe your work in 3 words?

Weird & Wonderful Gifts!

Which famous/TV/Movie wedding would you have loved to have worked on?

Game of Thrones has had some pretty epic weddings. I would have liked to make Rob Starks wolf next to him on his cake topper, (although that wedding didn’t end very well did it?) Or a tiny version on Margaery Tyrell and that little git Joffrey, (I would have made her look really beautiful and Joffrey really angry!)

How do you imagine your own wedding?

I can imagine it will end in an epic food fight!
