My youngest brother recently got married and I had the honor of making their wedding cake topper. He and Sarah first met while playing the World of Warcraft. He played a female Blood Elf and she played a male Tauren. They wanted me to create their characters in polymer clay wearing the same outfits which BJ and Sarah would be wearing for the wedding. Sarah wore a beautiful white wedding gown and BJ wore full Scottish dress to represent his Celtic heritage. I even created her wedding bouquet to match the flowers in the real bouquet. This highly detailed cake topper posed several challenges for me. It had to be lightweight since I didn't want it to sink into the bride and groom's special cheesecake. I also learned a lot about Scottish dress outfits while painstakingly matching the plaid pattern on the Blood Elf's kilt to the clan pattern my brother would be wearing in the wedding. I included as many details as possible, like the sporran, the purple tie, the laced gillies, and the belt buckle.
This cake topper measures about four inches tall and 5 inches wide and took about a month to complete. It was a real hit at the wedding. Everyone liked it so much I decided to make a custom order listing in CreativeCritters for personalized wedding cake toppers.
I can create toppers to resemble your online avatars, characters in a game, or anything else you like.
Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life. You want your cake topper to signify that importance, rather than have just another generic bride and groom! This is a keepsake you will have for the rest of your married days. It should be as special and unique as your wedding :-) I can create any character you like, so long as you can provide good pictures. I can also create more traditional bride and groom, or same sex cake toppers, but still customize them to make them resemble the bride and groom. There are a lot of options when it comes to wedding cake toppers, and I do my very best to create something that is completely unique, something that really captures who the bride and groom are.
