Have you looked on Etsy? There might be someone that could make a custom one for you.

Make it yourself and you will save a tun of money!  Order your letter here:

http://www.craftcuts.com

I ordered mine in “impulse BT” font at 5 inches high, cost me $2 for the letter and like $5 for shipping.

Attach a popsicle sick/tongue depressor or wooden dowel to the bottom so you van stick it in the cake.

Paint the letter silver, spray paint or acrylic will work.

Glue clear rhinestones on it.  I wouldn’t use hot glue cause of the little strings that occur, a tacky glue or other craft glue will be fine.  Everyone always says that swarovski crystals are the best, but usually pricey.  Use crystazzi brand.  They’re cheaper, just as shiny and usually on sale at Michaels or AcMoore, plus coupons.

I’m just waiting for my letter to get here and I will be doing this process.  Probably cost ya $5 for crystals if you wait to get them on sale.

Building on the previous post which was about letters not keys, you could get a key shaped flash drive, and add some crystals.

or use this key shaped’ key to my heart’ favor -again supporting it on a stick or skewer of some sort

or string a lock and key necklace from two supports like a banner -see the one below

Are you looking for a large skeleton key for the top of the cake?  I just did a quick google search in shopping for large skeleton key and came across a few items that may work  It may not be an actual cake topper, but with a little support it could sit on top of your cake.

There are some great ideas for cake toppers in the DIY section.  Maybe you could find a large key stencil or wooden key that you could decorate yourself.

@bunnyfoofoo: I thoght they had some shapes to choose from, sorry!

But, you could cut a key from cardboard (or if you’re good with exacto (sp?) knives and sand paper use balsa wood) and paint it and crystal it.  It’s only going to be on the cake for a few hours, so it should hold up.

Just wanted to add that I got my letter from craftcuts today and it looks awesome!  If you need letters for another project I would recommend them.  Super cheap and very fast shipping!
