STEP 1:

Take a clothespin and turn it upside down. Use your pencil to draw in the outline of the tuxedo, bow-tie, and the bride’s wedding dress. Brittany recommends keeping it simple, although she added rosy cheeks and a string of pearls to her perky bride.

STEP 2:

The next thing you need to do is paint in the lines. This bridge and groom are wearing the traditional black and white outfits, but who’s to say yours might not be a little more unconventional? Go wild. It’s your wedding day and you could do whatever you want to.

STEP 3:

Brittany used a glue gun to add a little lace veil to her bride, but the sky’s the limit for you. Or maybe you’ll have two brides, or two grooms? In any case, this is probably the world’s simplest and cutest cake topper. Now all you have to do is find the cake?
