I've always known that there were 'Hello Kitty' fans out there, but I guess I never quite realized the depth of the attachment until I overheard a girl at a bridal shop telling her mother she didn't care about her dress, her veil or anything else, she HAD to have a 'Hello Kitty' cake topper!
Until then I hadn't realized that Hello Kitty had moved beyond tiny stuffed animals my daughters had when they were young. There are actually adult Hello Kitty fans out there who spend major cash on Hello Kitty merchandise.
The cake topper with Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel shown on the cake above, is made by the Nao division of Lladro. This figurine was handcrafted in Spain. Hello Kitty carries a rose bouquet and wears a pink ribbon headdress. Her groom, Dear Daniel, is decked out in blue tails with a matching blow tie. Is this cake topper for everyone? No. But then I do know brides who chose to have a Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake topper or even a Garfield topper. So if you love Hello Kitty, go for it. It can't be any worse than those old fashioned plastic bride and groom toppers they had when I got married!
