I found similar similar starfish couple cake toppers on Ebay. I actually like them better...they each stand on wood sticks (rather than a single base). And they're about $30 - $35 bucks! I got the sugar starfish!

Sorry, Torilynnsmith...sugar starfish is a type of natural starfish. They're not made of edible sugar :-(

Hey, anyone else out there with a bald groom? The custom designed toppers are a bit pricey, and the only bald man I can find is this one from the interchangable selection (link below)....not sure if I like it though.

Any suggestions of other items you may have seen?

Are you dead set on having a bride and groom on your cake?  We are thinking flowers or shells as I am not big on the bride and groom cake topper!  If you are set on having that though why not check out etsy as I am sure a seller could design a topper for you!!!!

Yes, would love to have a bride and groom topper, thought it would be pretty funny to find a bald groom. Just not having much luck :(

Will keep an eye out on Etsy for now I guess.

Have you checked out Ebay? They have tons of cake toppers, including bald grooms. I'm not sure what your groom looks like, but check out this link. If it doesn't work, just go to Ebay and type in "bald groom cake topper". Good luck!

S/H).  So it was pricey, but I certainly plan on displaying it after the wedding, maybe next to our sand ceremony frame.  I sent the manufacturer pictures of myself, my fiance, the dog, my dress, his outfit, my hair flower, my desired bouquet, and my hair inspiration pic.  I hope he loves it....

I used mudcards on Etsy, surprise, surprise. Originally, I wasn't looking for mini-me's but I at least wanted the hair colour to be correct. This one will be custom made, I sent her pics of us, and one of my dress. check it out!

Here is the link for the item on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/personalizd-Custom-wedding-Cake-Topper-figurine-gift-/170489624914?_trksid=p3286.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D9098263052822027342

 

Before you will be able to buy the item, you will need to set up an ebay account by going to this link and hitting the register button:

https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn
 

The seller will send you an invoice via Paypal to pay for the item (I think these days you might not even have to sign up for a Paypal account to use that system to pay by credit card).  You will be notified of the invoice via email.
 

The steps I took to order:

1.  I put together the pictures that I wanted to artist to use to generate the cake topper.  It was tough for me because it wasa surprise for my fiance so I had to send a lot of separate pictures.

2.  I emailed the artist (using the email address in the ebay listing) to ask if he could make a good figurine using those pictures.  I also asked how I would go about paying the extra $10 for the dog via ebay.  He wrote back and said the pictures were fine and that once I had bought the item on ebay (but that I should not pay right away) he would send me an invoice for the proper amount. 

3.  While he was making the figurine he would send me pictures to make sure I liked things:  the bodies/clothes, the faces, the faces w/ hair.

 

Hope that helps!

 

If you want to see how closely he matches faces, check out my fiance and I in our engagement pictures (link in the signature of this message).
