We received our cake topper last week and it is fantastic! The attention to detail is amazing- I sent Paul photos of my dress and he was able to replicate the dress exactly onto the cake topper, right down to the fabric texture differences. It was amazing to see a Little Big Planet person wearing my dress! Paul was wonderful to work with, very responsive to our requests, and completed the order very quickly. I would recommend his work to anyone planning a wedding!

My fiancé and I decided that we wanted something a little bit different for our cake topper for our wedding. Seeing Little Big Plant has a special meaning for us, I started googling Little Big Planet cake toppers and found that the best ones around were made by Paul.

I contacted Paul to get a ball park figure of what the shipping would be (we are in Australia) and how long our topper would take to make. Paul was very easy to get along with and put no pressure on us to order with him. When we decided that the budget could include the topper, it was full steam ahead. Paul made changes to our sketch into the wee small hours while I was emailing him in the middle of the day here.

I was so excited when our topper shipped and when I saw the pictures of it on Paul's blog (my fiancé isn't allowed to look because Paul has done a wonderful job of recreating my wedding dress!!). But that excitement was nothing to what it was like to open the box (that took less than a week to get here - woohoo!!!) and see our beautiful toppers which are so so so much better than we could ever have hoped for.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul to other brides and grooms. Our cake topper will end up sitting in pride of place after our day is long over to remind us of what a wonderful day we had.

Thank you so, so much Paul!!

Paul created a stunningly accurate cake topper of my future groom and I for our wedding cake. His communication was great--very quick to respond to my questions and was spot-on with the shipping detail. Paul is a very talented sculptor and I am so pleased that I found him in time for our wedding! I highly recommend Paul Pape Designs! Added bonus: it's cute enough to put on display--no reason to pack this topper away post-wedding. :)

This review is about the excellent cake toppers that Paul Pape Designs created for the wedding of my wife and me, on July 27, 2013. For starters, the overall quality of service that Paul provided was outstanding. From first contacting him about his talent and how much he charges to ensuring that our finished product was shipped to us safely and in a timely manner...Mr. Pape was truly on top of things.

Every e-mail between us was professionally handled and prompt in response. Paul was very clear with Kim and I, each step of the way. We wanted our cake toppers to reflect our Nintendo Mii characters and done so in our wedding attire, so PPD requested us take pictures of our likenesses on screen, give him the pose we want, and even present images of our actual wedding dress and tuxedo (for Kim and I respectively).

The attention to detail in the final product was truly awesome. Kim's real wedding dress was perfectly replicated in Mii cake topper form, as was my tuxedo. Even our wedding colors of purple and blue were splashed elegantly on the ceramic heart that our Miis stood on.

The whole product now sits in our living room, in front of our TV, and will forever be a truly unique, memorable addition to our very special wedding day. We got a high quality product for a very affordable, completely deserving price. Oh...and everyone at our wedding thought the piece that Paul created was just adorable and the amount of pictures that were taken of it was great to see.

Thank you Mr. Pape for your help and awesome service...and for contributing nicely to our memories.
Best regards,
Paul and Kimberly Gale

I am very pleased with the service I received from Paul. He was easy to communicate with and responded to my questions in a timely fashion. I ordered a custom LittleBigPlanet cake topper from him, which is perfect for me and my fiance as we are both huge fans of the video game. The personalization and little details make it stand out. It matches the characters in the game pretty well and is overall a good quality product. I cannot begin to express how excited I am to have found Paul's work. I am absolutely in love with my topper and it was well worth the money spent to add that something unique and special to our wedding day. Not to mention, you can't find anything else like it anywhere! I definitely recommend Paul's work and service, especially for those video game connoisseurs out there!

Paul was so awesome! I will never be able to find the words to express how impressed I was with the cake topper that he had made for us. He made an Xbox avatar cake topper. He personalized it to the T! My dress, jewelry, hair… it all looked identical to what I looked like! When first saw the pricing, I thought it was a little much. But once I received the topper.. WOW. I would pay it again... easy!! I will definitely recommend Paul to anyone I know. He does amazing work and has great customer service. He responded to every one of my emails within minutes. Not to mention, my now husband LOVES it. I surprised him with it on the wedding day. Even days after our wedding (yes.. on our honeymoon) he was talking about how awesome the cake topper was. If you are marrying someone who is a gamer.. they will LOVE THIS! Just so happy with our topper! Thanks again Paul!

Paul created a one of a kind cake topper for our wedding reception. My fiance and I are HUGE fans of the Thrilling Adventure Hour and Paul worked tirelessly with us to provide us a cake topper based on two of the characters in the show. It looks great and I can't wait to actually see it on the cake next weekend.
Pual also made Adventurekateer cuff links for the guys to wear with their tuxes. Anything I asked for Paul could make for me and when our plans changed a little, Paul flexed right along with us with no questions.

Thank you, Paul, for making our wedding day a Thrilling Adventure Wedding Day!
