  • Wedding: The Retreat at Bradley\'s Pond

We’re big Lego people and they go on adventures on Instragram with their own # and everything. So all of our friends kept asking about it. We could have done the cake topper but it would have been too small so we set them up on the favor table (in their wedding day garb) with images of their adventures around the US. The wedding favor was actually Lego shapped candy (like SweetTarts). These Lego minifigs were custom created from the UK to look like our wedding day attire. 

Lego treats all wrapped up. 

We put our “lil dudes” in a golf case so they weren’t lost or damaged. Our sign on the right said something about “thank you for helping us build our lives brick by brick”. 

The wedding cake area was Cinderella themed because my family always called me Shelly Cinderelly and we now call my husband (Price) Price Charming. So fitting. 

Do it and have fun!!!

londonbee123 :  ha ha nice! Cake bunting twins! The top circle of our cake was 6″ wide (followed by 8″ and 10″) – our cake lady said any bigger and they’d look a bit lost up there. Just something to consider anyway πŸ™‚

We wanted to use regular funko pop animation figures as cake toppers – specifically those of Bob and Linda Belcher of Bobs Burgers https://funko.com/products/copy-of-pop-tv-sci-fi-b9-robot-1

They would face each other, which seems cute because he is giving her a burger and she looks she is smitten with the offer. Our rehearsal dinner is at a burger spot too and we of course, LOVE the show.

Would these regular ones be too heavy?

Are the custom ones less heavy or something?

We want to know if they can go on the top of the cake? How were your experiences?

DJBananaSmoothie :  yeah. If anything, a little heavier as batman is quite a weighty pop. 

The tier they’re on is just a regular vanilla sponge covered in fondant, and it took the weight no problem πŸ™‚ 

You could ask your baker to stick them to a Cake board to distribute the weight better if you’re worried though πŸ™‚
