My Very First Cake Toppers

My First Toppers
The picture is not great as its about 7 years old!
I've had a few friends tell me that I should start producing them, obviously for a fraction of the price of my normal personalised toppers and its got me thinking if there is a market for them.
If I was to 'personlise' them as in hair colour and flowers and make the dress more modern (less lace at the neck etc) do you as brides-to-be (or those already married) think they would appeal to others.
I know your an honest lot and would be grateful for any feedback please.

Have you thought about maybe doing some stock, simple designs, that are a little edgier than the normal, shop bought bride and grrom? I think ones like these are beautiful, but they're quite expensive to find in the shops...
Please don't be offended, as it's just my opinion, but personally i MUCH prefer the ones you usually do.

I have been thinking for a long time now about introducing a more basic figurine at a lower cost but I'm concerned that I can get carried away and spend just as much time on them as my personalised ones - if you know what I mean.
I have been toying with idea of finding time to make a couple of basic models and then putting them up for sale as they are so I may go along that line.
Everybody wants something different, which is great and as much as I love doing my personalised ones I do think there is a market for basic ones too.
Anymore opinions please?

I absolutely adore your cake toppers. After seeing Mel's I was really impressed with yours and wanted one but for me I just could not afford it and hubby to be cannot justify paying it for me lol
I know everyone is different in what they want and I have looked at other ones, i love the personalised ones but also like the plain more traditional looking ones too.
I think its good to have a good selection of different designs plus its more money making for your business too.
Here are some that I like the look of And look how different they are to eachother lol!
