Tuesday Time to Tackle: Wedding Cake Topper

My son asked me if I would make a topper for the wedding cake.  I envisioned some ceramic figurines, and couldn't imagine how I could possibly accommodate the request.  However, once my son sent me a photo for inspiration, I realized what he was asking wasn't so impossible. 

With wooden pegs and a bit of paint (Sharpie makes paint pens, by the way!), I was able to create a similar-enough replica.  (The glare on the groom's suitcoat is a photography issue.) 

What new projects have you tackled this week?

Thanks for the confidence children have in their parents, and for the courage that gives me.
