IMY (I Miss You) - Too Beautiful For Earth Collaboration

Daily Top 3 - Oct 10, 2016

My cake topper inspiration was from Martin Hudáček of Slovakia statue, but I want to bring it with my way and my own design. It represents a mother who missed her baby angel. I used isomalt to make the baby and then I hand sculpted the mother with the position hugging her baby. Thank you Bobbie-Anne Wright for including me in this beautiful collaboration.

My inspiration :

Too Beautiful For Earth is a collaboration of 26 cake artists from all over the world, who have come together to honour and remember babies born sleeping or who died in the early stages of life and those lost to miscarriage.
Our group have all either experienced personal losses or are connected to the cause through someone they are close to. The love, respect and empathy shared amongst us has been very real.
To see all of the amazing and emotional pieces created for our collaboration please take a look at our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Too-Beautiful-for-Earth-1067764993301766/?fref=ts
The uk statistics show that 15 babies are stillborn everyday in the uk and 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Sands (Stillbirth And Neonatal Death charity) supports research to help answer the questions that surround stillbirth and neonatal death as well as providing vital support to those families affected by the loss of a baby and continued training of health care professionals in bereavement care.
If you or someone you love has been touched by miscarriage or baby loss please consider making a donation to support the important work of SANDS.
