Tiny Baby Construction Workers

(I know I'll get MFD'd for "flavor," but this seems different enough to me...)

This came to me while trying to think up clever cake toppers for my daughter's wedding cake(my assignment).

An ensemble of (probably plastic) miniature babies in various poses and with assorted tools such as trowels, rollers, brushes, each positioned to look as if they are putting the finishing touches on the cake they have constructed.

I have considerable experience modeling with polymer clay. Seems like the best material for this.

Believe me, I searched for something like this...

This site frequently has clever cake toppers [csea, Oct 19 2010]

I had no idea there were so many to choose from until I really started looking for them. I didn't see any like what you've described, so bun. [+]

//I had no idea there were so many to choose from //

Neither did I...or how cheesy most of them are.

May I suggest "Wedding Cake Workers", "Candy Wedding Cake Workers" or something like that? I already bunned for the idea, but the title is nondescript. [+]

[bb] I'd go with that, except when I searched for something like this, I found the most using 'cake toppers.' How about 'wedding cake figures'? Believe me, I tried.

I don't want to start the slide into a list, but would it be in bad taste to have a bunch of Chilean miners struggling free from the depths of the cake?
-- egbert, Oct 18 2010

yes! :)

bit like the new christmas version of chilean whack a mole

Cake Gnomes?
-- Loris, Oct 18 2010

The point about mining makes me think that it would be nice to have an exploratory drilling rig on top of the cake and offer guests a core sample of cake instead of a slice of cake.

bun for cake mining accidents and sinkholes
-- Voice, Oct 18 2010

Ooh, now you 1/2 Bakers are starting to cook! I like the miners idea. Some are sensitive about 'drilling' out here in the west...not sure about the rig. Core samples is great, though. Maybe one 'worker' peeking out of a hole, shovel in hand, a pile of crumbs next to the hole..

(I was worried that some jack-booted halfbaker [who shall remain nameless] might come in here and smush my cake.)
-- Boomershine, Oct 18 2010

Hey, look at that over there! (Here's GROG, pointing away from the cake while simultaneously and stealthily fetching a finger full of frosting)

WIngèd cherubim ? Oh, and a tiny model 12-guage for potting them ...

[8th] //WIngèd cherubim//

This gives me another idea...a single cherub, Cupid, in fact, shooting love arrows into the bride and groom figures, lying dead on the cake. Slightly morbid, though....

Thanks for the link, [csea]. Looks like a subsidiary of the Fail Blog, unfortunately. Mostly Fail.

// bride and groom figures, lying dead on the cake //

How about a couple of blood pools, crime scene tape, and a group of CSI's gathering evidence ?

[8th] I'll run that one by the prospective couple...

8th, do I sense a bit of bitter resentment?

//8th, do I sense a bit of bitter resentment?//

Yeah...something that could be considered a *motive,* perhaps?
