Cool Cake Toppers

COOL CAKE TOPPERS

The tradition of having a cake topper has been rumored to originate from western wedding traditions. One story about the origin is based off a baker’s daughter who asked her father to make a symbol of love that would be visible to her guests at her wedding… according to this story, the father made two figurines, the bride & groom, that stood on top of the cake. It wasn’t until the 1920s that cake toppers became common & popular. Now, modern brides are exploring their options of how to express their love through activities that the couple enjoys together…such as bicycling!

COOL WEDDING CAKE TOPPERS

Wedding cake toppers can be a great way to show your personality on your wedding cake! Whether it be a depiction of you and your husband atop your cake, your monogram or a couple of love birds… cake toppers are a reflection of you two as a couple. Show your love! Taller cake toppers add height and artistic design to the top of your wedding cake. These colorful pom poms add wedding themed colors to your cake. Or what about a miniature version of you as a couple atop your cake?? We love these adorable figurines.

Hand painted & customizable figures are such cool cake toppers! These little guys can be designed to look like the happy & awesome couple that you are! Unique cake toppers like this are great – you can match flowers and ties to make your cake your own. Monograms are a timeless cake topper idea… Mr & Mrs or your initials is a great way to signify the beginning of your new family!

LOVE BIRD CAKE TOPPERS

Love is in the air with these two love birds! What better way to symbolize your love by placing two lovely doves as your cool cake topper? Love birds are a timeless tradition to showcase two people who are madly in love….aww.

Maybe the traditional “bride & groom” cake toppers aren’t your thing… How about a modern spin on love? Geometrically shaped hearts or beautiful wedding flowers that match your bouquet or boutonnieres on top of your wedding cake? Simplicity & elegance make just as big of a statement as any cool cake topper that you may find… It is up to you & your taste to make your wedding day as special as you are.

Cutting the Cake

Cutting the CakeCutting the Cake

The traditional cutting of the wedding cake, like many traditions, has been around for centuries. Long, long…long ago, it was thought that eating the crumbs off the floor that fell from the bride and grooms mouth would promote fertility for whoever ate them. Yuck-e! Thank goodness that tradition is no more!

What has survived is the opportunity to do one of your first activities together as husband and wife (much like your first dance). And believe it or not, there is a right and wrong way to do this. So pull out your notebook, grab a pen and start taking some notes. Here are some suggestions on cutting the cake to keep you from making some typical mistakes!

  1. Champagne popping and toasts take place before the cake cutting. This includes the traditional crossing of the arms toast for the bride and groom.
  2. Let the groom take the lead and be in charge of the cake knife. With the knife in the grooms hand and the brides hand placed on top of his, make your first cut into the cake simultaneously.
  3. Cut a small piece of cake and then use the cake server (triangle looking knife) to transfer the piece onto a small cake plate where you can then cut that piece into two.
  4. Let the groom feed the bride first (you can do this with a fork or with your fingers). This way if there are any shenanigans on the groom’s part, the bride will have the perfect opportunity for bridal revenge.
  5. Afterwards you can choose to cut and serve the cake to your guests to eat with their champagne or have it taken away and served for dessert at your reception. Either way, enjoy!
