Every artist has a tale to tell and so do I.
My name is Anjali Tambde and being born to an artist mother, I was naturally inclined to several forms of art and craft. She was my inspiration since childhood so much so that I made my first painting at the age of 3 when other children of my age managed to only scribble.
My love for art and craft grew with my age.
I entered all the drawing competitions in school and at state level and later at national level and won various awards and titles. In the process I learned to respect every win and strive to become better.
Moving AWAY FROM HOME...
After marriage, I had to leave my Job and left to London with my husband and my 3 months old baby.
Managing a baby and the house in a new country with no friends and family and absolutely no domestic help was the toughest task I had faced. It was the most difficult year as the new country brings its own set of challenges when you are on your own.
However I managed to enhance my skills in the free time and kept myself occupied with miniature craft, sugarcraft, paintings and few other ideas, most importantly being a kid with my kid and witnessing every moment of his happiness. This made me realise that I want to work from home and spend more time with my kids.
A humble beginning...
I started making miniature human figurines for my friends and family.
For a few years I kept working on different techniques for creating miniature figurines using the knowledge I had in painting, sculpting and even Fashion Designing.
Having spent months with adjusting to my new lifestyle I decided to open my own business in Ireland to sell handmade figurines for weddings and other occasions that would last as a keepsake, Global Cake Toppers is one of the first Irish companies that sold handmade cake toppers.
It turned out to be a good decision as in less than one year I started getting orders not only from Ireland but UK, France, Germany, Australia, U.S, Dubai, India and several other countries.
