Today's Bride

Top it Off


Your cake will most likely be the best part of at least one of your guest’s night. While the flavor is clearly the most important aspect of your perfect cake, the appearance and design will be the first thing your guests notice and judge. Make sure it’s something worth looking at by topping it off with the perfect cake topper.

You and your fiance will have a lot of options when it comes to choosing your cake topper. Should you go with the more traditional figurines, complement your decor and colors with a geode stone accent or beautiful bouquet, or opt for an elegant script? The most important thing to remember when picking out your cake topper is to make sure it complements your overall design and is reflective of you as a couple.


One of our favorite trends in cakes lately is scripted words decorating the top of their cake. Whether it’s a “Mr. and Mrs. Last Name,” the first initial of your last name, a short sentiment that expresses your joy like “Best Day Ever,” or “Forever and Always,” it’s sure to add a special touch to your decor and will also serve as a beautiful memento and heirloom.

If you want to stray from tradition yet still showcase an elegant and sophisticated cake topper, consider a bouquet adornment! Whether you have fresh flowers provided by your florist or flowers crafted from buttercream or fondant by your cake decorator, they are the perfect way to incorporate your colors, add a touch of romance, and make a one-of-a-kind dessert.

Of course, you don’t even need a cake topper to make your confectionery creation a masterpiece. If you choose a cake designer who shares your vision and understands your wishes, your cake will be the focal piece of your reception no matter what tops it off. Clean, modern lines with a bold accent are a great way to create a contemporary centerpiece for your reception hall.
