Wedding Cake toppers, made to order, by me, in my New Hampshire clay studio.
Ordering information below.

Because I work with a liquid clay I can only make the heads that I can cast.... no handbuilding with this clay. The options are a bit limited and may not suit every relationship. I am always adding more options so feel free to make suggestions. ( I am currently looking for a lamb, dinosaur, hippo, tiger and lion)

Fox (w/ tail)
Duck / loon / crane
squirrel (w/ tail)
bunny (pointy ,straight up ears) OR rabbit (more realistic)
Wolf/German Shepherd (same head)
cat (w/ tail)
elephant (large scale head, groom only)
Mountain Goat
Deer / Doe
Otter (w/ tail)

First, I must warn you that ceramics is not quick. If the wedding is quite soon, please look through the available toppers listed in the shop. Available and listed toppers can ship right away.
Toppers usually take 4-8 weeks, but this is a big important day....... and things can go wrong (in the kiln firing.... in shipping/handling), so, ideally the wedding date is at least 3 months into the future.

International shipping can be unpredictable, please allow extra time. Of course, I have absolutely no control over customs practices, taxes and surcharges. Please be aware of the postal habits in your nation.

The addition of heads will alter the size, but it should help to know that the groom's shoulder comes in at 5 inches (13cm) The base is 3 inches wide and 2.5 inches of depth. The toppers are hollow, with an oval opening in the underside. An average weight is 7 ounces.


Buying a custom topper allows you to select head combinations that are not currently listed in the shop, and you head to the top of my studio to-do list. The same combination may or may not be listed in the future at the ready-made price point.


Please keep in mind with all the figurines that there will be minor differences between one and another. Each is made individually by me, and one day I may attach a head at a slightly different angle then the example in the photo. Or the curve of a tail may be more loopy from one day to the next... you get the idea. The clay is an off-white. It reads as white, not cream, but I would not call it a stark blue white. The clear glaze will sometimes have flecks of grey that can be seen up close.
Take a look at the available toppers in the shop, or try scrolling through the "sold" section.
