Allsorts Clay creates personalised toppers that are made to last

Dawn Campbell, owner of the Ayrshire-based company, saw a gap in the cake topper market. Now, she’s designing unique pieces for people all over the UK

There’s something about wedding planning that brings out the entrepreneur in people – often, we hear from brides and grooms who were looking for a product or service for their wedding and, upon realising that no one was offering it, decide to set up a business themselves. That’s exactly how Dawn Campbell got started with Allsorts Clay, as she explains: “I started this business because I wanted a unique cake topper that looked like myself, my husband and my dog for my own wedding but couldn’t find anything suitable.”

The company can cater to all budgets and is open to non-wedding commissions too. “We can create toppers for all occasions from weddings to pet portraits and from baby showers to birthdays! Whatever the occasion, whatever your reason, we will create a truly special, hand-crafted cake topper just for you.” Better still, the toppers are made from non-toxic polymer clay and will last indefinitely. Top that!
