You’ve been searching for the perfect cake topper for 5 months, but nothing you’ve found seems to be cutting it. They’re all too plastic-y, bird themed, or 90’s looking. It’s getting pretty close to your wedding, so if you don’t find it in the next week, you’ll be stuck with the one your mom picked up on clearance at Michael’s for .99 cents. Yeesh. Then it happens. One moment, you’re aimlessly scrolling through Pinterest, and the next moment, you’re face to face with your DREAM cake topper. YES! It is everything you’ve been looking for and more. You click the image to be taken to the cake topper’s website because you’re ordering it this very second! And then, your worst nightmare happens… “The webpage cannot be found. HTTP 404.” You exit the window and try clicking again, hoping someone in internet world is just playing a cruel joke on you. But no. The error message appears again, and just like that, you’re back to square one.
Yeah, maybe my portrayal of ‘bride looking for perfect wedding cake topper’ was a little dramatic, but as I past bride, I know how FRUSTRATING that moment of planning can be when you can’t seem to find what you’re looking for anywhere! Ya’ll know that I LOVE Pinterest and have reaped its many benefits, but there are times that it just doesn’t do the job perfectly. Please, don’t stone me… I’m just speaking the truth! Time and time again, I have pinned recipes, jewelry, a DIY project, etc, only to later find that the pin doesn’t exist. How does this even happen??? This can be INCREDIBLY frustrating, especially when carefully planning out the details of a wedding.
