Wedding Cake Toppers


For many wedding cakes it is the topper that makes the cake. Since the topper generally represents the bride and groom themselves in some way they can be the most important part of the cake. These cakes have unusual, beautiful or simply novel toppers that are worth checking out.


Cake Topper Friday: Vintage-Style Christmas Cutouts


Next week I have a big fat week of Christmas-themed cakes planned for you. I mean I could just post regular old wedding cakes–but then I wouldn’t really be in the spirit would I?

In order to gear up for Christen’s Christmas-avaganza 2011 I thought we’d start here with this cute cake topper. This is a Scandanavian-style wood cake topper, featuring a beautiful Christmas tree, complete with presents and robins. Love. It. Especially the robins. It’s vintage and Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Simply Silhouette Wedding


I feel like I should rename this Show Stopper Friday. For realz.

This silhouette cake topper is made by Simply Silhouette Weddings and it is kind of amazing. I could be partial though because I am all about some silhouettes lately. I have seriously “pinned” every DIY silhouette tutorial on Pinterest in an effort to get one made of my son. I’ll let you know how that goes…probably not well if history plays a role. I should probably leave it to the professionals because Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Hans Solo and Princess Leia Bobble Head Cake Toppers


Do you remember last week when I posted our first Star Wars themed wedding cake and I commented on how long it took us to do so?

Well, I must be making up for lost time because I died when I saw these cake toppers and I knew they had to be featured! This cake features a Hans Solo and Princess Leia bobble-heads as their toppers. While I’m not exactly a Star Wars nut, the bobble-heads as a topper concept is not lost on me. There is a lot you could do here. You could use your favorite sports team bobble-heads, or is there another Read More


Book Topper


I hope that your Thanksgiving was wonderful and amazing and I hope that this morning you bought a dryer at Best Buy for one gabillion percent off.

In case someone beat you to the last dryer and you’re a little depressed today, this fantastic Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Chicago Cubs Cake and Topper


I’ve always had a thing for Wrigley Field.

This from the girl who just two short weeks ago asked her husband who won the Super Bowl.  (Answer:  The Cardinals…he has learned that I really just don’t care enough to attribute the right names to the right sports.  Of course I KNOW the Super Bowl is football if I thought about it.  Most of the time I simply don’t care to think).

Anyway.  My thing for Wrigley Field dates back to the first time I saw Sleepless in Seattle and they show a flashback of Sam (Tom Hanks) and Maggie (dead wife) Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for November 6, 2011

Paris Purple wedding cake

Happy November, Everyone!  Or, as my friend Maggie wryly said this week, “Merry Christmas!”

It does kinda feel like Thanksgiving and giving thanks gets swallowed right up in the mad rush of Christmas…which is, I’m pretty sure, not what we should be doing.  Nevertheless, I did my first spot of shopping today, and accepted my first invitation to a Christmas party.  So before I even have my Thanksgiving menu decided, Christmas is unfolding before us.

Well, here at A Wedding Cake Blog, we love them both – so we’ll do our best to talk about everything and keep all holidays in some semblance Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Big Gulp Topper


Never have I ever seen a cake topper feature a 7-11 Big Gulp. I am not here to judge…just to report the facts…and this cake does indeed feature a…Big Gulp.

Okay, Big Gulpiness aside it is adorable. This gumpaste cake topper features the happy bride and groom getting ready for a ball game. The bride is holding a baseball while the groom is ready with his bat and glove. This would be a great topper for a fun loving baseball couple.

What do you think? Can you get past the Big Gulp Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Mission Impossible Wedding Cake Topper

Mission Impossible

Well.  We’ve almost been around this corner of the interwebs for almost a year…it’s about time I posted a picture of a cake topper with guns don’t you think?

Why not?  I’m not an action flick kind of girl.  However, I can get down with an appreciation for a genre.  Especially when there is a story involved.  Apparently the bride and groom whom this cake topper belonged to planned and executed their wedding within 5 months.  Thereby making it their Mission: Possible.  That’s pretty hardcore considering Read More


Miniature 3D Wedding Cake

3D Cake

What do you do when you’re having a small wedding, or if you’re eloping?  Do you forego the cake altogether?  Well, you don’t have to.

I thought this cake was adorable at first glance.  I think my favorite thing about it is the “mixed media.”  The artist paints a floral motif, but then pipes some stems in a matching green for emphasis.  She paints flowers, but then affixes fondant flowers as well.  The combination of the painting and the piping and fondant work Read More


Cake Topper Friday:: Runaway Groom Cake Topper


I have a secret.  For months I have avoided photos of perfectly good cakes for one reason.  Because they have a Runaway Groom Cake Topper.

I really am not a fan of these.  I’ve been keeping it in for months and decided to finally talk about this today.  Because after all it just is a cake topper.  It is actually meant to be a joke.  I assume that if a bride felt that she really needed to drag her man down the aisle she probably wouldn’t be marrying him.  Right?  Or, do I put too much faith in society?

To me this isn’t funny.  I guess I just don’t get it.  Why would people want this on their cake?  I had a friend who dated her boyfriend for ten years.  Yes, ten.  Sure by the time they finally walked down the aisle we made many jokes about how long it took and at the rehearsal dinner we all said the word finally about six hundred times.  However, if she had put this on her cake I would probably think it was a little bit sad.

Maybe my view is tainted because the only woman I’ve ever seen put this on her wedding cake (in real life) was actually a girl who literally had to convince her husband to marry her.  He’s miserable today.

Maybe now that I’ve gotten this off my chest I’ll be able to post those gorgeous cakes that I see with this topper on it instead of groaning.  Loudly.

I’m not trying to be Negative Nancy or the end all be all of Wedding Cake Toppers.  It’s a personal choice and I say if you love this topper and you think it’s hilarious by all means get your Runaway Groom on girlfriend!  But please tell me why.

Are you with me?  Do you think this topper is kind of obnoxious?  Or do you love it and think it’s the funniest thing you’ve ever seen.
