"Clasping Hands"

 Wedding Cake Toppers

     Victorian's had many wonderful wedding cakes. The intricate designs in the frosting were so detailed. The tops of the cakes where just as lovely. Many a Victorian Bride used the design of Clasping Hands to adorn their Wedding Cakes.  The clasping hands represented the joining together the Bride & Groom. The Bride's hand had lace & flowers while the Groom's hand had a sleeve. The lovely gesture of two hands coming together first in Friendship followed by Courtship and ending in Forever Love had a special significance then and is just as lovely today.  

     A Wedding Tradition has recreated this beautiful Wax Wedding Cake Topper. Each wax hand is entirely a one of a kind handmade piece. So if you are looking for that truly unique Wedding Cake Topper please take a look at our pieces. Just click on the photos for more information.
