    I just received my custom cake topper from Keren (mudcards) on Etsy. I know I have seen that others have also ordered toppers from her. She really does amazing work, and I'm thrilled with mine.

    But, it requires some explaination - when I met my FI he had a pet hedgehog and got me one for Christmas two years later. His was the traditional coloring for an African Pigmy Hedgehog (a brown/black coloring). Mine, on the other hand, was an albino. So, she was all white with a pink nose and pink eyes. Unfortunately, they both suffered from different medical complications and died several years ago. But, we loved having them as pets and would have anohter, but they are now illegal to own in PA. So, I wanted to incorporate this into our wedding becuase it is something very unique to us. So...here is the cake topper she made for us.

        He doesn't have anything in his hands. They are just in front of him.

        They outlawed them in PA several years ago out of concern what they would do to the ecosystem if they were ever released into the environment. This is kind of bogus, and this argument has been made. They naturally hibernate in the winter, and the domesticated ones do not have the instinct to build up the body fat necessary to survive hibernation, so they would die once winter hit. Pets do not go into hibernation becuase people's homes do not get cold enough...or the owner's use heat lamps to help keep them warm.

                  I thought it was something in his hands too, but I think maybe that's his bowtie?
