A perfect gift for any pet lover, Laurie does amazing work! The whole process was easy and Laurie provided updates along the way. I don't think I can ever find a gift as perfect as this, and will definitely be using this shop for future gift shopping!

About

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 goofy Basset Hound. Thank goodness my daughter convinced me to gift it to him!

My brother took it to work to display on his desk and people started asking where he got it and if they could buy one.

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 several bridal magazines and internet blogs. 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!

My toppers are custom made using high quality polymer clay. I work from your photos and description to create a one-of-a-kind, totally unique wedding cake topper for your special day. Please place your order early, I book up quickly especially for the busy wedding season of June-October. Please contact me before you place your order with your event date or desired delivery time of your topper and I can let you know if I can get it completed in time for you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Since each topper is custom made to your specifications, returns are not permitted. If you cancel your order before I start your topper, then a portion of your money can be refunded. This is because I have reserved time just for you and I have not taken additional orders.
Payment
I accept all major credit cards, etsy gift cards and direct payments.
Shipping
I ship worldwide! I ship Priority Mail with electronic tracking within the US, International Priority or International Express outside of the US. If you place a rush order, Express Mail may be the only option to get your topper delivered in time for your 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.
