OK, so one of my close friends (and bridesmaids) suggested that I try to find a cake topper that would be Toby and Chamois. I spent a couple hours surfing the 'net looking for one, or at least for some figurines that could be adapted. I finally gave up, and went to the art supply store where I got some Sculpey modeling clay (bakes hard in a home oven). I made my attempt this afternoon, and I must say I'm fairly pleased.
The "real" Toby and Chamois:
The two of us (our friends insist there are similarities...):
The clay version:
What do you think? I didn't put anything in the pics for scale, I'd guess that the dogs are 2.5" - 3" tall and the palm tree is about 4" high. The top tier of the cake will be a 6" round, so it sould fit nicely. I made it this afternoon at my friends' place, hanging around her pool. I'm hoping the cold reality of tomorrow morning will not make it seem any less charming...
Toby and Chamois say: GO STEELERS!
I like it! How creative!
Love,<br />Giuli<br /><br />
I love it and it is so individual. With meaning just for you two. It will mean so much more than a tradtional topper.
I love it! It is charming! You've very creative, and talented

OMG, that is absolutely adorable. You are so creative!!!
I see the resemblance your friends are referring to, your fiance is dark like Toby and you are blond like Chamois.
