You are such a PC genius, my dear!  What a wonderful job you did.  I know you could get $100 for making those for people!  I'll bet it was fun to make too, wasn't it?

Fantastic job, now I want to see the couple in the matching outfits!

Wow, kittykill, you are the luckiest bride! What a fun wedding theme. And teapotdonkey, that is the coolest topper ever. I love the detail in her arms and his hands! I can't imagine the cake that will do justice to your awesome work! I would love to see it all together.

I used Premo clay. It is very flexible when it is that thin. To make sure they cake topper would make it in the mail, I bumped the hands and arms a bunch and pushed on them. They yielded to my touch just enough and bent without breaking. I packed it in a small box with fiber fill to make sure it would get there without banging around. The clay is pretty strong and made it there fine without breaking.
