In these modern times, the wedding cake betokens the couple’s love for each other and the sweetness of their forthcoming married life. Though the cake can stand on its own, most brides choose to add toppers to add a little flair to the confection. If you’re thinking of doing the same thing, here are some unique ideas for your toppers.
Bride and Groom Figures
Considered as the most popular topper as it is a classic, the infamous bride and groom toppers have been a staple for traditional weddings. Austere figurines made of porcelain usually adorn the top of the cakes but as time passed they have been replaced by modern minimalist wooden figures greatly resembling Russian dolls. Couples who share a unique passion like rock climbing or painting may have their toppers customized to show their love for their hobby.
Take you and your fiancée’s initials and style them as monograms. You can use it to decorate your invitations or wedding giveaways or have your pastry chef use it as the design for your wedding cake topper. Usually these are made from fondant icing and laid on top of the cake but some couples had theirs made from plastic or precious metals for them to keep as a souvenir.
Be it natural or made from fondant, flowers never fail to make a cake dainty. Use flowers that suit the size and style of your cake. If you plan to use fresh flowers, make sure that they are edible or at least not poisonous.
For couples who are kids at heart, top your cake off with sweet treats like little gummy bears or candy-coated chocolate. The kiddies that will attend your wedding will love it. Choose sweets that come in the wedding’s color combination.
Crown the most beautiful cake of all with shiny jewels. Have a jeweler or craftsman arrange precious stones or fancy glass into a beautiful cake topper of your preferred shape. Your guests will surely never forget your one-of-a-kind elegant cake. You can also use fancy customized jewels as wedding giveaways.
Whether you want them fresh or made from marzipan, fruits will add a pop of color in a usual white and boring wedding cake. Choose those that accentuate the taste of your cake or have them supply the main flavor. You can opt to go for simple fruit slices to top your cake or an overload of fruits that resemble Carmen Miranda’s hats.
