The story behind the topper is in the description next to the photo

Sunset nuptails set the stage for southwest color and Mexican heritage

A friend bought this unique Mexican cake topper (called "Los Muertos") for Victoria as a shower gift; "Itâs a traditional symbol of a couple being together forever," the bride explains, "even after death."

Ok, I must be unique, because i think it's really cool. Unique or just weird not sure which, but that's me. icon_wink.gif

I'm all about 'symbolism' and thought this was awesome.

OR my daughter would love to be married on Halloween and this would be awesome. Or maybe a Cinco de Mayo wedding? I love it!

My husband and I were married on Halloween and we had a Halloween wedding cake. I had two choices for a topper Nightmare before Christmas and a similar bride and groom like posted. I went with Nightmare before Christmas but I still have the other topper. For a wedding gift my friend gave us an animated bride and groom decoration they are about 2.5 feet tall and they sing "I got you babe" Many poeple still tell me it was the best wedding they've been to (everyone dressed up)
Here is a photo of my cake there are some wedding shots in the album too!

This was my very first wedding cake.

I have to admit I was a little dissappointed that my first attempt at a wedding cake was so non-traditional.

They were thrilled.

I am from New Mexico. So this is not a shock for me at all. LOL. I think it's really neat when couples do something "out of the box". We almost had Star Wars toppers on our cake. Yikes! Glad I didn't agree to that. LOL.

Thanks, I actually kind of redid the spiderwebs after the picture was taken so it looked a little better.

Now what's wrong with that!? I so would want a Star Wars topper (Leia and Han). Seriously, as a kid, I had a perfect Star Wars wedding planned out right down to the Imperial March being played for the Wedding March. icon_wink.gif

I thoroughly enjoy the story behind the topper but it's definitely not something you'd expect. I actually like what it stands for but personally I might stick it on the groom's cake or something (not my $1000 wedding cake!) icon_lol.gif

I was just about to say the same thing. Saw the picture, then saw that the wedding was in Albuquerque, my hometown, and thought, "Ok, well that makes sense then!" icon_lol.gif

My DD had a similar topper on her wedding cake. I loved it!

This cake was from Cinderella Cakes in Orange County.

I'm from LA so it's not a shock for me either. icon_wink.gif

I can only think of one reason why they would have this topper. It is an exact replica of how the Bride and Groom really look like, inside and out. icon_smile.gif

It was very fitting for the bride and groom. They are both covered in tattoos.

And before anyone judges by the tattoos, I must say my Son-in-Law is the sweetest guy. He always helps me around the house, won't let me pump my own gas if they are with me, helps me bake and clean the kitchen afterwards and he absolutely adores my DD. thumbs_up.gif

ME TOO! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif And being from SA, that topper isn't a huge shocker to me either. I knew what it was right away (without reading the description on the side). In high school we even celebrated Dia De Los Muertos and sold pan de muerto (bread) and champurrado (it's like hot chocolate) during lunch.

Sounds like a foreign language to me! icon_lol.gif


My experience with the south is severely limited..... 2 layovers at Dallas/Ft. Worth and 3 trips to Florida.

I love it!!!!!

And I love Pan de Muerto with Champurrado!!! Can you tell I'm Mexican?!?!

Dia de los muertos (day of the dead) is a very much celebrated holiday in Mexico. ITs all about remembering those who have passed away and making death a little "fun" I guess. THey do sugar skulls, bring food and drinks to the cementaries to represent the favorite foods of their loved ones....

Its pretty cool. Well, I grew up with it, so I guess its totally not weird for me. Heck I am even getting a tattoo this week of a Mexican Sugar Skull!

Im going to mexico city for the first time for a week so I wanted a great memory of it!

I would have loved to have thsi cake and topper for my wedding..Maybe I'll do it for one of my anniversaries......

I know!!! I live right on the border so every year I get to eat that delicious bread they sell only on those days. Its a really neat tradition! People spend the whole day and night at the cementary, eating, they bring flowers....they even bring music!!
And the more you go down south in Mexico, it's even more popular! icon_smile.gif
