Ethnic Cake Toppers


Though I never really gave it much thought before, the cake topper industry has not exactly gone out on a limb to represent the mixed ethnicity couples of today. Thankfully, a company called Renellie has stepped up to the plate.

To best represent your unique situation, you may choose between eight interchangeable figurines. You can pair a White Groom, Black Groom, Latino Groom or Asian Groom with a White Bride, Black Bride, Latino Bride or Asian Bride. This would also work great for gay couples as you can choose to match brides with brides or grooms with grooms. As you get to choose the two figurines for your own cake topper, you can ensure that it best represents you and your partner as a couple.

Even if you choose not to use one of these on your wedding cake, it might be fun for a groom's cake or even for a cake at a rehearsal dinner or shower.

I love to see companies out there embracing the unique needs of couples today by taking on issues such as these. As busy wedding planning bees, what other areas or items would you like to see some more ethnic diversity in?

Hi, Hunter.
Officially, I just wanted to tell you that the cake topper was loved by all!
People raved about it! People clapped and squealed with delight when they
saw it. Even more amusing was the fact that we had such an array of desserts
that we only chose to have a wedding cake in order to display the topper. So
we had this bitty cake and a great big overwhelming cake topper that was the
hit of the dessert table!!
Thanks again! Feel free to display it (along with any of my comments) on
your webpage!

Hello Hunter
I just wanted to send you some pictures and a little note to express our deepest thanks for creating such a wonderful wedding cake topper for us. It was so amazing and captured us perfectly.
It became the star of the night as so many of our guests wanted a picture of us posing in front of the topper. I did plenty of "name dropping" that night because the cake topper is too terrific to keep a secret.I know they will be SUPER jealous that they didn't find it first. Thanks again for everything.
Sincerely
Jennifer H& Neil H
