Not Your Mother's Cake Top!


Gone are days of boring old wedding cake tops ... you know the ones. We've all seen them! Brides and grooms now have creative and whimsical alternatives to top things off on their wedding day.

Monogram Cake Tops
New monogram cake tops allow the couple to personalize their affair. Depending on the size of the top level on the cake, you can opt for the single letter of your new last name, or you can select a full monogram of three letters. Monogram cake tops usually come in white, brushed silver, or gold and make excellent keepsakes after the wedding. Some brides are ordering multiple letters and using them in their table centerpieces, as well, to tie the entire reception room into the monogram theme.

Whimsical Cake Tops
Fun loving couples often go for whimsical cake tops that illustrate their personality and highlight the fun-loving nature of their relationship. Whimsical cake tops include verything from "The Groom takes the plunge" to the bride dragging the groom back to the chapel. These cake tops are certain to get your guests talking! Conservative brides who want to opt for the more traditional style cake topper for the formal wedding cake may end up choosing a whimsical cake top for the less formal grooms cake. Just like the monogram toppers, whimsical cake toppers can also be used to decorate your reception tables.
