I think the top is hideous, but this is what I mean by less cake, more cupcake. This is too elaborate (all the extras here would cost too much - who has antique china cups just lyin' around?) but if we did a smaller cake like this topper and then did the pails with rose cupcakes...? Just a thought.
An absolutely inspiringly beautiful collection of vintage (primarily 1930s) china from brands like Carlton Ware - Buttercup, Apple Blossom and Foxglove. Royal Winton Beehive. James Kent Poppy and Annette, Burleigh Ware, and Grindley Poppy.
