Ideas for Your Wedding Cake Topper

Your wedding cake should taste good, but since it will stand on a table at your reception for perhaps hours before getting eaten, it should look good, too.  The traditional cake topper is a statue of a couple standing side by side, but here are some other ideas you may wish to consider.

Flowers – Martha Stewart Weddings shows a lovely cake toppermade with roses in a ceramic pot. Use the same type of flowers from your reception centerpieces to achieve a cohesive look, or try a different flower to make the cake stand out.

Couple’s Initials –Let Swarovski crystal studded letters grace the top your cake like a tiara. Use the smaller letters for the bride and groom’s first names and the large center letter for the newly shared last name.

Garland – If your wedding has a whimsical feel to it, a fun garland gracing your cake us a cute idea. 100 Layer Cake will get your ideas flowing for how to put together a fun garland made from colorful straws and paper.  This cake topper can easily be customized to incorporate your wedding’s colors.

DIY Kissing Couple Clothespin – Still leaning towards a couple atop your cake? This kissing couple topper made from an extra-large clothespin puts a spin on the traditional couple standing side by side. The Brooklyn Bride shows you how to create your own.

These unique topper ideas will make your cake look as great as it tastes.
