In the months of being engaged, I haven’t actually “bought” anything for the wedding. I have paid deposits but those deposits aren’t unnecessarily taking space in my apartment. I need things unnecessarily taking space in my apartment! For the sake of this argument and eliminating small stuff from my to-do list, I set upon the quest for the perfect cake topper.
I knew I wanted a figurine cake topper, rather than a monogram or flowers (When else can you have cute people on top a cake). And so began the great interweb search for the great cake topper.

One problem, we are an interracial couple. Well not really, but really… we, like most other puertorricans, are racially undefined. Thanks to historical events, the population of Puerto Rico is a mix of African, Spanish and Taino, and we are no exception. I knew I wanted to reflect ourselves, so there is no way I could use a Caucasian couple figurine or an African American figurine.
After feeling inadequately represented in cake toppers, I come up with a great idea. We would have cartoon figurines, so that the racial issue isn’t present. I narrowed down the world of cartoon figurines to Disney. We have a great love for animated Disney movies and Disneyland, so it seems like a perfect choice. After searching online for a bit, we decided to go with one of the designs of Disney Traditions by Jim Shore we found on Amazon.

In the end we decided to go with #1 because it went better with our color scheme and is sooooo cute. Mr. Boa got really excited about the cake topper choosing and bought it for me as a no-particular-reason gift. I love that it makes us share our fun, childish hobby of weekend binges of Disney cartoon movies, with our guests in a cute way. We are hoping to display it in our home after the wedding and passing it along to our future children as a our first family heirloom.
What did you choose for you cake topper?
