It never really crossed my mind back when we were planning our wedding to add a cake topper to our wedding cake, but I’m totally loving the idea now. Cake toppers are so cute and fun and with all the customisation available these days, the options are endless. I personally love a simple coloured or ruffled cake topped to perfection with a unique cake topper. What’s also great about cake toppers is that after all the cake has been gobbled up, you have a lovely keepsake to remind you of the celebrations. If you’re not planning on having a wedding cake, toppers are great for cupcakes too! So, what do you think peachies? Cake topper instead of the more traditional flowers to top your wedding cake?
Whether you’re looking for something low budget, personalised, unique, here are some of my favourite cake topper ideas to help get you started.

You know how I love glitter at weddings so I just love this super sweet glitter heart cake topper! It’s the perfect bit of glitz and glam to add to a simple ruffled wedding cake or a plain coloured wedding cake. You could even add shorter versions of these to cupcakes too!
Peg Doll Wooden Cake Toppers
You might remember these peg doll wooden cake toppers by Goose Grease we featured a few months back here which are just too darn adorable. Wouldn’t they be a super cute addition to your gorgeous wedding cake? These toppers by Goose Grease are completely customisable and personalised as they can paint you, your love and even your pets. How great is that? These would make the perfect keepsake to display in your new home together too!
Bunting Cake Toppers
I love buntings and these miniature ones are great for wedding cakes. They’re super easy to DIY yourselves and you can incorporate a message on them, your names or even keep them blank and use pretty fabrics, papers and colours to tie your cake in with your colour scheme. I love them so much, we even custom make them for clients so drop us an email to get one made just for you!
