Cake Toppers to expand outside Ireland

19 January, 2010

Home-based cake decoration business Cake Toppers Ireland has announced plans to expand internationally.

Jill FitzGerald, who runs the business from a studio beside her home in Co Kerry, south-west Ireland, said she plans to expand with the production of christening and birthday toppers this year. She also hopes to start supplying the UK and US markets.

The cake-topping figures are made from non-toxic polymer clay and are currently ordered by customers for use on wedding and celebration cakes. The clay figures, for example a bride and groom, are personalised for each customer.

FitzGerald, who has a background in food and catering, started Cake Toppers in 2008. She previously ran a part-time business producing wedding cakes.

Her business was boosted following an appearance on TV last autumn, and FitzGerald said her only problem has been keeping up with orders. I need to employ someone soon, to help meet demand, she added.
