Cool Cake Toppers: From the Simple to the Simply Divine

Once upon a time, the lowly cake topper consisted of a plastic man and a plastic woman stuck in frosting atop the cake. And yes, let’s face it, it was also two halves of these couples broken apart and paired together to look seamlessly ‘glued together’ with frosting to look as made for each other as the real-life couple.

Let’s be happy that nonsense has passed.

Today’s cake toppers allow a couple to think outside the box when shopping to cap the centerpiece of their wedding reception. Truly, anything goes: from floral bouquets, to birds sitting together in a nest, to the handsome silhouettes of two gentlemen standing atop a delicious confection. It’s your day- do what you want.

As a photography company with the ability to photograph many weddings across the country each month, we love seeing how couples share their common interests, declare their love, or showcase their colors on top of a cake. As long as everyone gets a slice, that is. (plus- if it’s funny, you will forever rock in our world. Two rubber duckies atop a cake? Brilliant!)

Don’t be afraid to DIY your own cake topper. Be trendy! Be chic! You can even use lovely lettering to form whatever words you’d like to share, or you can decide it may be best for you to leave it to the experts.

Whatever your decision, have fun with this small bit of whimsy- besides, in later years, you can turn your cake topper into a beloved ornament for your Christmas tree or use it as a cute tchotchke to gather dust upon your mantel.
