Cake Toppers in Amsterdam

Cake Toppers in Amsterdam
The window at #146 caught my eye

In Amsterdam, looking around Anne Frank’s neighborhood while we waited for our ticketed time to  enter the museum, I was captivated by what I saw in the window of a building on the other side of  the canal.  I have no idea what kind of business was in the building, maybe a wedding planner, or dressmaker, or just a person who liked to collect  cool and odd things.

Imagine, cake toppers telling a story.  The cake is long gone, but the little figures live on in the window.

Another window, more cake toppers

Another bridal party?  The bride and groom, the bridesmaid and groomsman, the flower girl?

The bride on the left looks like she had an accident, the couple in the center, a second marriage?  The couple on the right, who knows?

More bridesmaids and groomsmen and a couple on a pedestal who don't look like a wedding couple at all, maybe they are guests.

My favorite, the jittery groom who almost got away.  I love the bride on the left's dress.
