Unique Wedding Toppers Ideas with some Creativity
The top of the wedding cake is a perfect place for some kind of special adornment in the form of creative wedding toppers. The cake is the main focal point of the reception room, and the top is the pinnacle of everyone’s attention.
Many interesting toppers for wedding cakes can be purchased from stores. But if you desire something off the beaten track, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Photo Toppers of the Bride and Groom as Children
A very sentimental and meaningful topper can be made by simple framing a picture of the bride as a child and a picture of the groom as a child. Place both on top of the cake facing slightly towards each other. Guests will love to see photos of the couple as kids, and the presentation will add interest to the top of the cake.
The top of the cake can also have unique icing to highlight the two frames. A heart made of icing can be made to encompass both pictures, or the names of each can be piped in front of each frame, or an endearing saying can be written in icing. Use fairly light frames so their weight does not sink in to the icing.
Antique Cake Toppers
Add a touch of nostalgia to your wedding cake with antique wedding cake toppers. Antique toppers are generally very unique and interesting, and will be sure to become a conversation piece. Many beautiful vintage wedding toppers are available in materials such as porcelain, wood and metal. Fancyflours.com has an assortment of vintage toppers to choose from.
For even more meaning, see if your grandparents or other older relatives still have their wedding toppers you can borrow.
Fresh Flower Wedding Toppers
The flat top of the cake is the perfect spot for a bundle of gorgeous flowers. Flowers have such a natural beauty; they instantly add interest and texture to the cake. Remember that any fresh flowers will generally have to be assembled at the last minute before the reception in order to keep the flowers looking fresh.
If the bride and groom have some craftiness in them, they may want to consider making their own toppers. As word gets out that they were made by the couple, it will be the talk of the reception. The topper can be very personalized and meaningful if made by the bride and groom, and may become a family heirloom.
Fondant or Marzipan Sculptures
Instead of a porcelain or plastic topper, an edible topper can be created by experienced wedding bakers. The sky’s the limit when it comes to how creative you’d like the food based topper to be. Confer with a few wedding cake bakers to find one willing to create a custom sculpture for you. Discuss the possibilities to find out what can and can’t be done.
The best part is that someone gets to eat it!
