The cake topper arrived on time, but arrived damaged. It had a crack along the one tower. Customer service says that all items are shipped "new" and checked before shipping. Great.
The paint job is done sloppily - the silver and white don't stay in the lines and overlap at odd places. The mold they used also left visible seams and there was no apparent attempt to hide them. I think it was removed from the mold too soon, because some of the towers lean slightly (only I will notice, but still)
It's also much heavier than I was expecting. I'm worried about it sinking into my cake! Would it be a cake bottomer then?
All in all I can probably fix the crack with some white-out and glue, and I can repaint it to make it look nice - but I expected it to arrive that way. I'm hoping I can salvage this before my wedding in a month. I'm not shocked as it was only $13, but I am a bit disappointed.
