Question: Varina, thank you so much for agreeing to do this interview with us. First of all, tell us a bit about yourself, the person behind the business, and why wedding cake toppers?

Answer: You’re welcome and it is an honor to do this interview. I love weddings and crafts and both my daughters were married in the same year and my younger daughter and I made everything we could make for their weddings, for example the decorations and bouquets and cakes favors etc.. We loved making something different and unique. Why I picked cake toppers is because I wanted to be in the wedding business but wanted to create my own hours, most people who are in the wedding business have their weekends taken up with their business.

Q: How did you start doing this line of work?

A: How I started in this line of work was my younger daughter noticed that a lady was selling stock from a cake topper business and since crafting and weddings were what we liked, we said lets do it. So we bought the supplies and began making cake toppers and going to wedding shows and we had such a great response the business began to grow. However, it became too much for my daughter with working and going to school so I took over the business.

Q: I’ve looked through your website and the toppers are absolutely amazing. How long does it take to fulfill an order?

A: The minimum it can take to make a cake topper is 2 days, this is only if all the materials are in stock and the idea of the topper has been developed. If materials need to ordered in then it will take longer.
