I recently ordered a DIY kit from Goose Grease to make our own cake toppers. I was sold on the idea after watching the Martha Stewart's The Art of Wedding Cakes II.
The kit available included a family of 6. Since we are nowhere near that, I am happy to have just made Anwar and me. The kit comes with two brushes, and a paint set of six colors, as well as a non-toxic varnish. The DIY kit was $10, and with shipping, the whole package came to about $14. Not too shabby.
Here is my work in progress as well as the finished product. I am more than happy with how they turned out!
