Announcement   TAKING ORDERS FOR 2017 ~ PLEASE PLACE YOUR ORDER EARLY!

Since each topper is hand made with the greatest attention to detail, I have only a limited number of slots available for orders. I have already begun taking orders for 2017, please place your order early to ensure I can get your topper created in time for your big day!

My customers are passionate about their pets and want them to be a part of their special day. Some are able to have their pet attend the ceremony, however, the majority of the time they cannot be present. A custom cake topper in a place of honor at your event shows friends and family how much your furbaby means to you. Your custom topper can be on the wedding cake, the groom’s cake or displayed on the cake table. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, any special occasion! I will work with you to come up with a totally unique, custom creation that will wow your family and friends!

I can't even put into words how AMAZING my cake topper was! Everyone at the wedding could not get over how much it looked like my golden retriever, and what an amazing touch it was to my wedding in Hawaii. Laurie was phenomenal to work with and she really paid attention to details and what my vision was. And a huge bonus is now I have the topper as a keepsake displayed in my house. AMAZING!

I can't put into words how obsessed I am with what Laurie gave us. It is truly our favorite part of our upcoming wedding. Laurie asked pointed questions to make sure she got details exactly right, and she was extremely responsive. I am so happy with this purchase.

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 them 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 took off!

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!

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.

My philosophy is to treat others the way I want to be treated. Your custom topper will be created to the very best of my ability. You will receive a wonderful, unique, one-of-a-kind piece that will be an amazing addition to your special event.

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.
Refunds and Exchanges
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.
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. I can create most any kind of scene so please do not hesitate to ask. Booking is only confirmed once a payment is received. We work together to create a totally unique creation!

Photos that show the front, back and sides are great especially if your pet has a particular spot or color pattern you wish for me to replicate. Please do not send me photos of your dog as a puppy and an adult, they look completely different. Do not send photos of your dog with his fur cut and then ask why I didn't make his fur longer. If you send photos of your dog in shadows or super bright sunlight, that has a huge impact on his coloring so please keep that in mind. Send me photos that are well lit and show the colors of your dog that you want me to try and match, your photos are all I have to work from. Photos can be emailed or sent via regular mail. Hard copy photos will be returned with your sculpture. If you have school colors, sports teams logos, email me photos that clearly show the accurate color and logo you want me to replicate.

If you want your pet dressed in a particular way: wedding dress, suit, hat, veil, or uniform, then photos of that attire are appreciated. If you want a particular prop included, a photo of that prop is most helpful.

A typical topper measures approx. 5inches 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.

When your topper is complete, I will send you several photos for your review. I can make significant changes to the topper ONLY if I have not already started working on it. For example, if you decide you want your topper on a grass look base instead of sand or you don't want your groom dressed in a tuxedo, I cannot make that change after I have already started. I can make slight changes to a finished topper like additions of flowers or a toy, or add a hat or veil.

Prior to my starting your custom topper, I prepare a document reviewing what your requirements are to make sure that I have the correct understanding of what you want. I will also ask for clarification at the time if I have any questions. Please carefully review this document to make sure I have everything correct before I start. You can make any changes at this time.
