Let them eat cake!

You know what they say: put a cherry on top! Should you be topping your cake (or cupcakes, or any other sweet treat!) with fruit, flowers, a traditional cake topper, or anything at all? We’ve got the scoop on all the loveliest things to set atop the culinary star of your wedding menu: your wedding cake!


Floral on the frosting

You’ve already got beautiful flowers for the wedding day, so why not tie it all in and stick some on top of your cake! This makes for elegant decor for your dessert table and you can have the florist make it! Easy as pie (or, in this case, cake)!



The Traditional Topper

There is nothing wrong with sticking to tradition—or a traditional cake topper. Pick our your favorite little bride and groom and stick them right on top of that delicious cake for all the world to see!


Traditional Topper (with a personalized spin!)

As lovely as tradition is, it’s even more fun to put your personal twist on it! Have a dog? Add them, too! Star Wars fans? Go with R2D2 in a top hat and BB8 in a veil. Sports fans? try the look-alike bobbleheads in your favorite team's jersey! The possibilities are endless! Have fun with it!




Fruity tutti

It might sound bananas, but, we promise it’s an idea that’s just peachy! With a similar elegance to adding florals, going with a fruit top is a simple but unique way to give you cake edible elegance! Bight and beautiful, this topper will make all your guests marvel while they wait to get a taste of the fruity fun! Orange you glad you considered this?



What’s in a name?

Name toppers give us all the wedding feels. Classic, gorgeous, and the perfect way to celebrate your the two of you!


Tip: Try just the first letter of your last name or both of your full names for a different twist!



Get naked!

It’s getting hot in here! So take off all….the toppers. (Admit it. You started singing that first part, didn't you?) Not into cake toppers? That’s okay! You don’t need one. It’s YOUR day and YOUR cake so if you’d rather go without, that’s okay. Let the flavors speak for themselves!



Picture this!

Consider something truly unique! Photos of the two of you! Not only will it draw the guests to come get a closer look at your delicious cake, but it’s also a simple detail that adds that extra pinch of sweetness to your big day.
