Wedding cake toppers come in all shapes and sizes, and invariably all price ranges. If you want to add a topper to your wedding cake, but don’t want the traditional sugar or ceramic bride and groom, don’t worry. There are many creative alternative cake toppers that you can use to create a signature look with your wedding cake.
Digital Picture Frame
The first option that you have for a creative and personal wedding cake topper is to use a digital picture frame. You can upload pictures of you and your new spouse to the digital picture frame and have it display a slide show of your relationship. You can also add baby pictures of you and your new spouse to the memory card so that people can see how you both grew into the loving couple that you are now. To protect your digital picture frame from your cake, you can place a plastic plate on the top of your wedding cake, set your picture frame and surround the base with flowers to conceal the edges and to make the picture frame look like it is a part of the cake.
If you and your new spouse both have a sweet tooth then consider topping your wedding cake with special candies. For example, you can have special M&Ms made that have your names printed on them, your wedding date printed on them or special messages printed on them. You can also use mini candy bars, chocolate coins and even candy animals or insects, depending on your wedding theme, to top your wedding cake.
If you are interested in creating a very natural and elegant wedding cake then consider using flowers to top your wedding cake. You can use edible real flowers or you can use silk flowers. This is a great option if you are throwing a beach or tropical wedding, or if you just want to add a fresh touch to your cake. Flower toppers also work well for couples that have decided to make their own wedding cake to save money. The basic cake can be frosted in a white frosting and the flowers can act as the primary cake decorations. If you select this option make sure you select flowers that are edible or use silk or candy flowers.
Another quick and cheap option that you have for a wedding cake topper is to use toys. You can use toy figurines, trucks, cars, horses or any other type of toy that you want to add character to your wedding cake. When selecting a toy to use as your topper, try to pick something that compliments the theme of your wedding.
