Way back in the summer, Mr. Unicycle and I had a conversation about cake toppers. I don’t remember much about the conversation since it was so long ago, but I do remember that he suggested we do a Lego cake topper. We both love Legos (though who doesn’t, really?), and we both wanted something a little different while still having a traditional bride and groom atop the cake. A Lego bride and groom would be perfect! Kudos, Mr. U.
We first went online to get inspiration, and Mr. Unicycle found this on Etsy:

At the risk of embarrassing Mr. Unicyle, I have to share with you that he suggested we just buy these instead of making them ourselves because “They’re only $7!!” I was like “wut.” I know cake toppers can be pretty expensive, and I was guessing that even the materials used to make these would be more than $7. Yeah, turns out the shipping cost was $7, and they actually cost, drumroll please, $100. No thanks.
After months of putting it off, searching for individual Lego pieces (did you know you can order any Lego brick online in any quantity?), and waiting for the bricks to arrive, Mr. Unicycle finally got around to assembling the cake toppers last weekend. He even super glued them together so we can cherish them forever. I photographed them on the paper towel they were drying on.
If you’re ever in need of specific Lego bricks, I highly recommend using the Lego Pick a Brick site and Digital Designer program. The Lego customer service was also extremely helpful when Mr. Unicycle had questions about bricks he couldn’t find. They got him in touch with Lego brick sellers that were not officially affiliated with Lego to find a few “out of print” bricks.
I’m so excited to put this bad boy atop our polka dot cake! I made a quick mock-up for you guys. It’s gonna be awesome, basically:
What do you think of cake toppers? Are you a fan of having a bride and groom atop your cake? Would you prefer to just use fresh flowers? Are Legos too quirky?
