This is the story of a wedding cake topper of a bride and groom wearing surgical masks and kissing. Getting married during a pandemic and celebrating such a happy event is certainly a unique challenge, and some of you decide to do it with original ideas like this custom-made anti-covid topper!
Over the decades, numerous artists have depicted the kiss: there’s Klimt’s famous Kiss, the splendid Kiss by Hayez, and the oh, so passionate kiss sculpted in marble by the famous Canova, to name three that immediately come to mind.
My cake topper of a couple kissing wearing masks
Thanks to yet another of my ‘Boomerang’ clients whose name is Maria Laura, I was given a chance to have a go at interpreting a different version of the kiss, the sweetest universal expression of love.
I had created a custom-made, football-related cake topper for this client’s wedding back in 2017.
Now that her sister was getting married on October 22nd, 2020, she contacted me again for another one. This time it was to depict the ‘sign of the times.’
Allow me to explain. As we all well know, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about change in our daily habits and changes that protect us and those around us as well. So, with this in mind, she came up with the idea of putting face masks on the bride and groom in the cake topper as they delicately kiss. The photos Maria Laura sent me of the couple and the outfits they had chosen were great.
I was able to follow them and make the cake topper just the way she wanted it.
Lastly, I put surgical face masks on the bride and groom. I then brought them close to each other and joined them in a kiss.
Hooray for love!
