Fun with Wedding Cake Toppers!

I realized that it’s been over a year since my last post on wedding cake toppers and since then, I’ve seen so many more amazing toppers, I think it’s worth checkin ’em out again!

This is one of my favorites, which I used in another post… They’re 3D avatars that are designed to look like you! It’s cute and it looks like the friends who used it!

Then, I just found this really creative one! It was designed for a fall wedding that wanted orange colors, and I think the design of the little characters is so cute! This is from SpiritMama (photo is a link to the flickr page where there are many more design ideas!):

I also really like this one ’cause it shows that the bride and groom have some spunk! It’s cute, right?

This is another homemade one that’s from a designer on Etsy — and it’s so well done! (This photo is also linked to a flickr page that has other designs!)

This is an amazing topper for someone who’s into machines. It reminds me a bit of Short Circuit or Batteries Not Included. So well designed, detailed, and really unique!

And if you’re looking for something else, you can use flowers as cake toppers or something simple like a heart:

And then there’s this one, which is one of my favorite joking cake toppers (right? it’s a joke?)

Will you use creative cake toppers? What kind of topper will you use?

Cool Looking Cakes!

I’ve been perusing some photos on the web and have found some of the coolest looking cakes! I thought you’d appreciate them too.

I like this one because the colors match the wedding color theme: blue and brown/black! It looks so great and I’m guessing there was chocolate under there, so they really couldn’t go wrong!

 This next cake is… um… awesome! It’s Nintendo! It fits the personality of the couple and it’s cool looking too! And, from what I understand, it tasted AWESOME.

This one is along the same lines — a castle! It’s so cool looking and elegant.

And here’s a “simple” white cake — with a dash of pink, and stairs, and… wow…. How cool is this?!

Actually, I thought I was going to stop earlier, but I had to include this great cake. This is the tallest elegant, white cake I have seen!
