Choosing the Perfect Cake Topper

Top of the cake pops

Let’s be honest, what to have atop your cake might not fall into the top ten priorities for your wedding. But we think it’s a missed opportunity to make your cake a fabulous showstopper and your cake cutting a really fun highlight of the day. Here’s some of our favourite toppers to make your cake a brilliant centrepiece for your celebration.

Twisted trad

If you’re hankering for old school, why not throw a twist into the tale? A traditional bride and groom topper can now be found chilling on the side of your cake, dancing, or some clever artists can even create lifelike likenesses!

Modern times

We don’t need to keep harping on about how much we love metallics, but if you’ve got a modern vibe going on, opt for a topper to match. Geometric shapes and metallic would be right up your street for 2018!

Write it up

Calligraphy is a really simple and popular choice for toppers at the moment. They’re so easy to personalise – why not choose a phrase that means a lot to you as a couple?

Fab floral

You can not go wrong with a floral topper – real or sugar crafted. It’ll seamlessly match with your décor and means you can opt for a chic, simple cake, leaving the colour and texture to the flowers.

Light up

Vintage themes are so popular, so if you’re going for a vintage vibe, why not steer away from a topper of bunting or rustic wood, and go for a neo vintage lightbulb creation instead?!

Au naturel

Lots of people are going for a plain top tier, focusing on the cake as a whole being a work of art. This is a stunning option – if you’ve spent time on choosing the perfect design, don’t go chucking any old thing on top!
