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?

    I was looking for a full figured African bride with a smile or some life in her eyes. I had even considered using dolls from my native Ghana. My best friend suggested looking at the soulkidz collection. It was a figurine of two children that look like my husband and I at that age. We placed them inbetween the first and second layers of the cake and they were beautiful. My wedding taught me, If you can’t find it out there, make it up as you go along!”

    I agree that these are a bit gloomy looking, also they don’t have a bald groom option! I found some on, the couple are dancing together (perfect as my H2B is a professional dancer) and they do a bald groom! Also they are great value, especially when I convert the US dollars to UK sterling (I live in England)> If I was going to be really picky I would want to find one that does the groom in traditional African dress, as that’s what my H2B will be wearing. If I paid a lot of money there might be a company out there that would make one for me, but my budget for cake toppers is not important or large enough for that!

    You are right.

    That’s partly why I created the concept of this: , as I love making people smile. In my research, I have found that the market of pre-made toppers does not reflect our actual society, at all. 😉

    I think for example full figured women, interracial couples, same sex couples should all be celebrated equally. We need more choices, obviously. :)

    Custom made might be an option, right?

    […] rather than depicting themselves atop their wedding cake? The answer to that question is no. The Weddingbee ran a blog post about just this topic. Their picture of a wedding cake topper depicts a black man […]
