I am getting married, probably in August 2007.  I would like to try to make my own cake topper...  something that reflects my husband to be and I.  I'm not great with 3D stuff... but I'm capable.  Any resources that I should check out for sure?  I haven't worked much with polymer clay, but I have worked a bit with clay in general.  Thank you!

Edited to also say that this is posted in response to the mini me thread...   though that apparently didn't work.
