My fiance and I would love to have cake toppers that looks like us but we have two things going against us. First, I’m white and he’s black – the options are limited, unfortunately. Usually there is only one black male figure porotype as if all black men look the same . haha I digress. He’s also an officer in the Marines and we’d love to have his figurine in uniform.
Has anyone heard of custom cake toppers? I’ve pretty much resigned to the fact that we’d just use flowers or our inital but thought I’d give it a go if there were any bees who have done or seen something similar.
Thanks for your thoughts. 🙂

@idoitall: Hi! I actually make custom wedding cake toppers! And can completely sympathize with you…I’m asian & my husband is white and I never did find a cake topper that looked like us (this was before I started making cake toppers 🙂 I would be happy to work with you on getting a wedding cake topper that looks exactly how you want it! You can check out my Etsy listing:
Let me know if you have any questions…I’d be happy to help 🙂

We are using Paul Pape designs. He is awesome!
But what is your budget? He is a sculptor and his statues are about $300 (for full details including the exact dress and tux)
Here is a gallery of his work:

Unless it is really elaborate they are usually under $100. She does everything. We got ours from her and it is amazing!

I don’t know if you’d be interested but we are actually having our cake baker make a personalized cake topper of my Fiance and me. His groom’s cake is going to be Harley Davidson, so we are getting Fiance and me in our wedding gear riding a Harley as the cake topper. I think it’s going to be so cute and is only going to cost us $50! Only downside is it probably wouldn’t last forever like a plastic or wooden one would, but I just really want ours for pictures.
