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.


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.

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for October 16, 2011

Mickey Pumpkin cake toppers

I’m writing to you from the wild, wonderful mountains of West Virginia.  We’re up for our annual fall visit, to see the leaves, to eat favorite foods, to hug the necks of people we love.  Sadly, a wild, wonderful wind came through the night we got here after an ungodly long drive.  So the pretty leaves are all on the ground.

But we will try and soak up some fall, and delight in our surroundings.  It really is nice to wear a sweater and not get hot.

I keep noticing wedding cakes everywhere I go!  There’s an adorable little coffee shop in Bridgeport that I’m dying to go over and Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Rainbow and Little Tweet Cake Topper


Last May I kind of fell in love with Star House Designs when I featured their Bicycle for Two Cake Topper. That love was solidified today when I came across this adorable Rainbow and Little Tweet Cake Topper.

Somewhere over the rainbow…skies are blue! That’s how you should feel on your wedding day right? I love this cake topper because of its simple and sweet message. This topper is handmade and hand drawn by Heather and Jeremy of Star House. The topper is totally customizable including the color and the bird and Read More


Cake Topper Thursday: Cake Poms!


**I know I usually do Cake Topper Friday..but these Cake Poms kind of rock my face so hard that they had to be shown on a Thursday**

Cake Poms make me happy.  For real.

In particular these Cake Poms make me happy.  Perhaps this is from my days as a cheerleader and anything “pom” related makes me want to shake what my momma gave me to old school jams like Achy Break Heart and Down With O.P.P. Highly inappropriate for elementary school girls by the way.  These poms aren’t Bulldog Green and White…but they could be if you wanted.  Made by Potter and Butler out of Portland, Oregon, these Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for October 2, 2011


SERIOUSLY. Where did the year go and how is it October??

I know that’s goofily unoriginal.  But when I typed that title just now, I was all, like…whoa.  And I’m not a like whoa kinda girl.

This has been a fantastic year for us here at A Wedding Cake Blog…and we’re just getting started!  In a little under a year, we’ve met such warm and generous people in the World of Wedding.  We’re regularly blown away Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Gumpaste Bride and Groom


It always amazes me what cake artists can do with a little gumpaste.  Seriously.  Have you ever seen that stuff before it’s carved and molded into something like this?  It’s not exactly the easiest substance to work with.  How it goes from a lump of white stuff to this I’ll never know.  I guess that’s why I just write about cakes instead of making them.

But go ahead and check out the new Mr. & Mrs. on top of this gorgeous pink cake.  The bride and groom are carved to cartoonish perfection – perfect to add a little bit of fun to the top of your wedding cake.  I also love the cake that they sit on Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Love Blocks


Raise your hands and shout “yahhh” if you’ve got a thing for Martha Stewart. Let’s face it. There is only ONE Martha Stewart and I loves her. I seriously don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that said they hate Martha Stewart–well maybe people who know her personally–but like her stuff and her style…I just don’t think anyone can hate her. If you hate Martha Stewart style you probably kick puppies. Or, you don’t…whatever.

My point? I do have one. I fell head over heals for this L-O-V-E Block Cake Topper that was found on Martha Stewart Weddings. The topper consists of four blocks spelling out the word love. My favorite part is the gorgeous teal bow that is wrapped around the boxes that coordinates with the fondant stripes around the base. On a somewhat random note I used to have a silver piggy bank that looked just like this topper. Anyone else…or was that just me?

What do you think? Do you share a love for Martha or are you not such a fan? Do you think it’s weird she used to date David Letterman? That’s a couple I can’t see together. Oh well…too bad it didn’t work out. They would have had a gorgeous cake.

Mickey Pumpkin cake toppers

Happy Fall Everyone!

Yes…I know it’s technically not fall.  And I know it’s literally still in the 80s and 90s oh…everywhere, prettymuch.  But, you see, I can’t help myself.

There are two things I love (well, there are many things I love…but the “two things” work here, so we’ll call it poetic license.)  I love fall.  And I love Disney.

So you can imagine how hard I flipped when I saw this ab fab cake topper on Etsy!

Cake Topper Friday: Sugar Paste Flower Monogram

Sugar Paste Monogram

We’re seeing lots and lots of monograms of late in connection with weddings…and I, for one, am not complaining.  I love, love monograms (which, if you knew me, would not surprise you in the least.)

Lately, though, most of the monograms have been in the form of a placard on the side of the cake – a classic detail that I fall in love with all over again everytime I see it.  Another option – the swooshy rhinestone jobby on the top of the cake.  Sparkles and pretty.  Perfection.

But – ever in search of something new and just a little different Read More
