Up wedding cake topper

Sugar-crafted bride and groom wedding cake toppers continue to be hugely popular with young couples getting married and go really well with novelty style wedding cakes or funky designs. Aside from the classic sugar-crafted style cake toppers, “peg-style” cake toppers are also very much on-trend at the moment for the more alternative or boho bride. We have a great example above right from the brilliant Eat Cake Be Merry who have published a tutorial to make this peg style cake topper here: Bride & Groom Cake Topper Tutorial.

Sugar modelling expert, Verusca Walker has put together one of her hugely popular picture tutorials (below) of all the elements needed to create her stunning bride & groom,pictured above right.

Next, we have a wonderful example of vintage style bride & groom topper sculpted by one of the world’s leading sugar artists, Carlos Lischetti. You’ll find the full instructions to recreate this cake topper in his first book, Animation in Sugar: Take 1.

For a more “alternative” couple, you’ll find the instructions for the funky bride and groom cake topper (below right) here: Bride & Groom Cake Topper Tutorial.

You’ll find another great tutorial for a bride and groom topper here. For bridal hairstyles (and grooms’ hair too) Lovely Tutorials have a selection here: bride and groom topper hairstyles tutorials.

As you practice creating bride and groom toppers more and more, you’ll eventually start to develop your own style. In the meantime, we have some fabulous sugar models to inspire you.

The two beautiful sets of toppers below are from sugar model supremos Sugar High Inc. in the US (below left) and by UK cake topper experts, Feats of Clay, below right. (You can now learn to make the exact bride and groom below left from Sugar High’s Brenda Walton in her Craftsy class here: Custom Cake Toppers Step-by-Step.)

Sugar Couture Cupcakes and Cakes crafted the beautiful family wedding cake topper (below left) including the wedding cake designed to complement the brides ruffle wedding gown. A second wonderful example below right, in a cartoon style also (image via Tumblr).

Don’t forget to think about the placement of your bride and groom models too – a cake topper doesn’t always have to be on top of the cake. Below, we have two examples from the wonderful Bella Cupcakes, NZ.

And while they’re not quite edible, the handpainted “peg-style” cake toppers below are enormously popular at the moment. The wooden pegs are available to buy online, including from Goose Grease on Etsy, who also have a tutorial showing you how to paint your bride and groom here: diy bride and groom cake topper tutorial (wooden peg dolls).

More peg doll inspiration below, including a tutorial from the Elephantine blog: diy cake topper tutorial (wooden pegs).

Just remember to set your cake topper on a circle of clear acetate when placing on top of the wedding cake – craft paints aren’t food safe!

Still, it’s hard to deny that putting something atop you cake holds some charm.

Luckily, some wedding vendors and crafty sites like Etsy have caught on, and stated created cool, funny, and just plain modern cake toppers—most of which don’t cost very much, and add a lovely touch to any type of cake.

You see if these other trends aren’t for you, a sure fire way to wow your guests with your cake, is to finish it off with a creative topper! So I have rounded up 20 of the most fabulous ideas….

Glorious Crowns

If you are a regular visitor to these pages, then you will no doubt have stumbled across my crush on all things crown! Whether they’re to sit atop your head or your cake, there is no doubt these sparkling beauties add a touch of luxury to proceedings. And with the current modern-vintage and Victoriana trends they have seen a real resurgence in popularity.

Love Birds

Or staying with the animal theme, a pair of love birds couldn’t look cuter perched on the top tier or your chosen confection! They come in all sorts of types, styles, colours and sizes and have long been a favourite of mine (you can see my original post here)

Best of all, you get to keep and cherish them after the big day – some even come with beautiful Victorian style glass cloches to protect them. And I would definitely get one that included our pup Bodie!

Vintage Treasures

A treasure from an era past makes the perfect topper for the vintage bride. Especially if its a family heirloom!

Seasonal Blooms

Or you can’t go wrong with asking your florist for a few additional blooms. Have them create a little something that co-ordinates with your bouquet for a sophisticated look, or choose one contrasting flower for a more whimsical, just picked feel…..

When we got married, we didn’t really consider looking at wedding cake toppers. At the time, there was nothing out there that I thought was super cute, and it seemed easier to slap some flowers on the cake and call it a day. The weird thing is, in the years since our wedding, I’ve become sort of obsessed with wedding cake toppers. Given that I run a wedding media company, I’m able to enjoy this minor obsession without veering too hard into Miss Havisham territory. (Though also: Does anyone know a cool way to display an ever-growing display of vintage cake toppers, and how many is too many?)

The absurdity of my personal buying habits aside, collecting wedding cake toppers has made me fall in love with the tradition. I have cake toppers dating back to the 1920s (not to mention some super hip ones from the early 1990s), and each one is such a delightful and specific way to commemorate a particular wedding and moment in time.

We all know that the world of weddings is whitewashed (in pretty much every possible way), but the cool thing about wedding cake toppers is that it is the only corner of weddings I’ve ever researched that is somewhat diverse. If you’re ordering a realistic-style cake topper, you can usually pick skin color, hair color, dress color, and often even add tattoos. If you’re looking for a more minimalist modern take on the wedding cake topper, you can find wooden dolls with painted saris. And coolest of all, if you’re falling down the rabbit hole of vintage cake toppers on Etsy (and let’s not forget eBay), you can find diversity in cake toppers going way, way back. Turns out that for a hundred years couples have found ways to make those little markers on top of a cake reflective of who they are.

(Fun fact: My favorite vintage cake topper in my collection has a bonkers huge real lace skirt, and I recently realized that it was glued on top of a far simpler painted skirt. Some unknown bride in the 1950s looked at that tiny ceramic bride and was like, “Girl, my dress is five times this extra, and I have glue.”)

So with that in mind, we were delighted to dive into the world of cake toppers and find you this collection of dessert decorations that fit every style and taste. They range from modern to vintage, with a few great DIY ideas thrown in. And remember, after the wedding is over, these make a perfect addition to your bookshelf. And one day, a grandchild or great niece or nephew my swoon over your old wedding cake toppers.
