I didn’t feel right getting one of those cheesy cheap cake toppers of the “standard” bride and groom. We are an interracial couple with a baby and a furbaby. I know that there is a (one) interchangeable interracial (that’s a mouthful) cake topper out there but I felt that it wasn’t “us”. We really wanted to include our daughter and our dog (who won’t be attending the wedding thanks to Hawaii’s pet quarantine policy). I didn’t want to pay an etsy seller $50 plus dollars to make something that I could make. The best part, it only cost me about $8 to make (I already had tons of paint).
Baby Biscuit tried to eat her replica and Fuzzy Four-Legged-Biscuit Sniffed his replica’s butt (lol dogs).
Any who, I just wanted to share with all the other DIY Bees. I can’t wait to see what it looks like on top of our chocolate (yes, brown!) wedding cake!
Forgive me for my cell phone pics.

When we first adopted him (he looked so happy). He was so skinny when we first got him.
About to go out for a walk in a blizzard. He doesnt like snow to get on his paws so he is all geared up (I’m not crazy, I promise).
and doing what he does best!

This is adorable! I can’t believe you made it! I’m so jealous as I spent $80 on one from etsy. I made a lot of my stuff, but I did not make the cake topper, although I did love the cake topper that we got 🙂

This is absloutely wonderful! I love it 🙂 And OMG your pup is CUTE!!!
We are an interracial couple as well, and I also decided to DIY our cake topper. I included our cat too – all I need to do now is get the felt for her ears 🙂 Yours are perfect!

First: love the cake topper!
Second: your dog is so cute!!!
Third: what materials did you use and where did you get them? We’re an interracial couple, too, and I haven’t really come across any cake toppers that I thought actually resembled both of us.

@sarahbabs: I bet it’s going to be adorable! You have to post some pics when it’s done! They don’t have too many options for us blended and furry families but at least cake toppers are relatively easy to DIY. Future Mr. Biscuit is Chinese and the Asian guy on the “standard” cake topper looked terrible.
