Custom Dog Cat Pet Wedding Cake Toppers!

Lake Orion, Michigan | 127 Sales

Announcement    More then just a cake topper!

Are you passionate about your pets and want them to be a part of your special day? Some couples are able to have their pet attend the ceremony, however, the majority of the time pets cannot be present. A custom cake topper in a place of honor at your wedding shows friends and family how much your pets mean to you. Your topper will be a totally unique, custom creation that will be a hit with your family and friends!

Because each topper takes a great deal of time to create, I can only take a limited number of commissions per year. Place your order early, I book up quickly! In addition to wedding cake toppers, I create memorial tribute pieces, custom pieces for special gift giving and wine bottle stoppers.

After placing your order, you have my commitment to create a wonderful keepsake piece that will be delivered well in time for your special day! I look forward to bringing your vision to life!

I am so blessed to be able to share in your special day!

14 years ago, I received an assortment of polymer clay as a birthday gift from my mom. She recalled how much I enjoyed working with clay as a child. I decided to sculpt my brother's Basset Hound. Thank goodness my daughter convinced me to gift it to him!

My brother displayed it at work and people began asking if it was for sale.

I began selling dog sculptures on the internet, taking custom orders of fun, whimsical sculptures. Soon, I was contacted about making a Bull Mastiff wedding cake topper and my cake topper business began!

I have created hundreds of toppers and sculptures and have been featured in multiple magazines and internet sites. I even have a few celebrity clients. Please contact me and together we can create a wonderful and totally unique sculpture for your special event!

Additional policies and FAQs
My sculptures are not intended to be portraits but rather a character representation of your pet where I try to capture their personality!

Completion time varies greatly, especially during the busy months of April-November. I can sometimes do a rush order. I encourage early booking (several months in advance) as I can only create a limited number of sculptures per month.

I work from photos of your pet(s) and a description of how you want your topper to look. Booking is only confirmed only after you have placed a deposit.

Photos of your pet are critical. I will email you example poses that are most helpful to me.

A typical topper measures 5 inches wide at the base and 4 to 6 inches tall. This is designed to fit perfectly on a 6 inch cake top. They can be made larger or smaller if necessary.

Prior to my starting your custom topper, I contact you to go over your order and confirm the design. You can make any changes at this time.
