Please consider that it is our very best intention to create a cake topper that you love the first time we attempt to do so. Creating facial likenesses however is a very subjective process.

We ask that you remember that the scale of the photos you are sent in comparison to the actual cake topper heads is very large. In actuality, our cake topper heads are less than 1" wide for Classic style cake toppers and less than 2" wide for Funny style cake toppers. Also, when we add coloring, the cake toppers heads will appear more lifelike and also will resemble the subject more.
