wedding cupcake topper

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingMy dear friends Mark and Betsy are getting married in a couple of weekends — yay!

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, they’re going to have wedding cupcakes. And they asked me to draw a wedding topper to stick onto each cupcake. This is basically what it’ll look like.

Kinda fun; I just wish I was better at likenesses.

    Not knowing what they look like IRL, I think this looks great! You could tell me Jaime Hernandez drew it and I would almost believe it.

    Awesome! That’s going to look really cool when there is a whole bunch of them together!

    Josh, it’s great! I wish I had a picture of the living dead wedding topper from Randi and Joe’s cake. I think you’d like that, too, though if they will eventually resemble it, I don’t want to know.
    Nice work – a super gift to friends!

    Because I’ve been hearing from folks interested in doing this for themselves, here’s how Mark & Betsy created the toppers:
    They took the artwork and printed it on regular white card stock. They matched up the front and back as best they could and cut around them at the same time — so that they’d match when they stuck them together. The picks were flat “party picks” by a company called Amscan. They bought them at a party store in West Hartford, CT. They used a Kolo photo tape “gun” to adhere the two sides of the topper to the stick and each other.
    Here’s the link to the party store:

    Good luck!
