Wedding cakes: while we can all agree that these sweet offerings need to be delicious first and foremost, we also understand that there can be some decidedly tricky elements thrown into the mix when it comes to selecting the wedding cake of your sweetest dreams. One such element that seems to invite the biggest debate is the wedding cake topper: does your wedding cake even need to be topped off? Is there a way to include a wedding cake topper without it seeming tacky? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Grab some tea (and maybe a slice or two of those wedding cake samples you’ve been testing) and we’ll share with you a roundup of wedding cake topper advice from some of the boldest bakers around. Here we go!
First of all, there are myriad options that are decidedly more of this moment then the tiny, plastic mini couple figurines that might be plaguing your creative vision. But here’s the thing, even if you want to go for this look, you’ve got options that are notably cool. Lily Jones creator of Lily Vanilli Bakery in London says you can get techy with your cake topper and opt for “3d printed models of the bride and groom that can be really cool as you can throw some great poses and wear something you really love that will look great on top of your cake.”
Or, your fresh take on your wedding cake topper can skew more floral. Our friends over at The Caker only use fresh flowers to decorate the tops of their wedding cakes. Owner Jordan Rondel says that using exclusively fresh flowers to top off their wedding cakes is their “signature look,” adding that they believe flowers make wedding cakes “look elegant, modern and fresh.”
