20 Creative Wedding Cake Toppers
After looking at some of the biggest wedding cake trends for this year: black beauties, single tier confections and some tasty alternatives to the traditional; today I’ve rounded up some of the most fabulous finishing touches! I am of course talking about the topper, the cherry of the wedding world. You see if these other trends aren’t for you, a sure fire way to wow your guests with your cake, is to finish it off with a creative topper! So I have rounded up 20 of the most fabulous ideas….
If you are a regular visitor to these pages, then you will no doubt have stumbled across my crush on all things crown! Whether they’re to sit atop your head or your cake, there is no doubt these sparkling beauties add a touch of luxury to proceedings. And with the current modern-vintage and Victoriana trends they have seen a real resurgence in popularity. So for the bride who wants to infuse her day with the romance of eras past – or just unleash her inner princess, they make the perfect wedding cake topper…..
Whimsical Woodland Creatures
Or add a touch of woodland magic or whimsy to your celebration with some sweet animal wedding cake toppers. Gold, ceramic, wood or clay, these duos will look sweet atop your cake…..
Or staying with the animal theme, a pair of love birds couldn’t look cuter perched on the top tier or your chosen confection! They come in all sorts of types, styles, colours and sizes and have long been a favourite of mine (you can see my original post here)
If I had my time again, this is the type of topper I would choose! I just love the idea of hand painted miniatures of you and your beloved gracing the top of your wedding cake! Best of all, you get to keep and cherish them after the big day – some even come with beautiful Victorian style glass cloches to protect them. And I would definitely get one that included our pup Bodie!
Create a fair feel for your party and match your cake topper to your decor with a delightful little bunting cake topper. You can even personalise it with your names and the date, or some heartfelt words to add a dash of romance…… Oh, and if you’d like to give creating one a go, there’s a great DIY tutorial over on Something Turquoise.
Laser Cut Outs
A little more modern, than bunting or birds, these laser cuts can be understated and chic with a simple Mr & Mrs, or some heartfelt words or even works of art like the beauty that topped bridal designer Anna Campbell’s wedding cake…..
A treasure from an era past makes the perfect topper for the vintage bride. Especially if its a family heirloom! If you’re not lucky enough to have a family member with one hidden away somewhere, allow plenty of time to find the right one – as it isn’t so easy to find one in good condition nowadays.
For something more subtle and understated, vibrant fresh berries make a gorgeous, and not to mention delicious, alternative cake topper. Especially for the naked wedding cake lover and the DIY bride. Simply add a touch of greenery, perhaps a dusting of icing sugar… and voila!
Or you can’t go wrong with asking your florist for a few additional blooms. Have them create a little something that co-ordinates with your bouquet for a sophisticated look, or choose one contrasting flower for a more whimsical, just picked feel…..
Or how about no topper at all? Let the icing shine and wow with a cake stand instead! Its perfect for this trend of elegant tall cakes that we’re seeing…..
