Cake toppers

Autumn weddings. It’s been a lovely mix of cake toppers this autumn. (Obviously I can’t give anything away yet until the weddings are over!) But I am looking forward to sharing the latest autumnal cake toppers.

I love adding the little leaves and conkers to make the cake toppers really seasonal. Autumn is becoming a really popular season for weddings, and is almost as busy as summer. The weather can still be lovely, and the natural sunlight can make a beautiful backdrop. Autumn also provides some wonderful natural colour schemes, natures pallet is very rich at this time of year. I think it also provides a great mix for your day, a bright autumnal day and then a lovely cosy evening with your guests. Perfect for a snug night with an open fire, and that is always a great excuse for toasting marshmallows.

This is one of my most autumn themed toppers yet, and I loved making this one. The topper was so much fun to make. I must admit, there were lots of hours went into making and painting each leaf. That’s the lovely thing with the personalised cake toppers, because they are handmade to match, anything can be customised to match you.  Reds and oranges have been really popular colours all year. Orange has been especially popular this wedding season. A lovely bright rich colour, which contrasts beautifully against a wedding dress. Red and orange is a lovely warm wedding colour, that is great to match accessories with. It is always interesting to see the patterns of wedding colour schemes matching the seasons, something I think I would do myself.

Maybe I am bias as I love autumn, but I do think it is a fantastic time of year for a wedding, and an autumn themed cake topper to match!

Wedding cake ideas

I was sent these lovely photos this week, of a wedding topper on the cake, and had to share them, such amazing wedding cake ideas. I think this should have been called a yummy wedding cake post!
The top tier is a traditional white iced cake with a cake topper, and the base is a fantastic stack of doughnuts. I absolutely love the idea and I’m guessing it was a big talking point on their wedding day.

I love an unusual cake, which this one definitely was. Such a great fun idea. The topper matched the bride and groom. The brides dress was made to match, and also the groom in his uniform. The bride and groom included their cat on the topper, who had lovely unusual markings on his face which I also matched for them.

Autumn cake toppers

Cake toppers made to match the changing seasons are a popular choice, whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter there are many options for each season. At the moment I have been working on Autumnal cake toppers. It’s a fantastic time of year, the air feels fresher the colours outside are red and golden and home feels a little bit more cozy!

Here are a few of the Autumn themed toppers I have previously made

especially the leaves, but the overall effect in the end was worth it.

I have been looking through old photos of wedding toppers today and thought I’d share a few of the Christmas themed cake toppers. I love Christmas ……maybe a little bit too much! It is my favourite time of year and it must be so exciting to plan a wedding at the time of year that is already full of sparkle and glitter. I love the Christmas wedding themes that have been added to cake toppers over the years, snow, snowball fight, little footprints in the snow, robins, Santa hats glitter and more.

Wedding Cake Flowers

I love the use of flowers on wedding cakes, I think it gives a really elegant look.

This is a photo of a cake topper sent to me from a happy customer, showing a topper and flowers on the cake.

It is a fireman cake topper on a tired cake with the flowers wrapped around, I think it looks beautiful.

Gretna Green

There have been a few requests for Gretna Green cake toppers this year.

Pictured here is one in white and one in purple so it can match the colour scheme.
The topper pictured on the cake is a lovely story which is told here in the review kindly left by Fiona

‘Thank you so much for our beautiful cake topper of Gretna Green sign and the anvil. It went on top of our cake along with a Christmas spray and we had been married several days earlier and everyone thought they were coming to a pre-Christmas party!
It will now be a perfect keepsake of our special day.’

I think that is such a lovely story and a great surprise for friends and family.

The signpost toppers don’t have t be Gretna Green and an anvil, it can be made with any wording or accessory that suits you, they can be ordered from www.wedding-cake-toppers.co.uk
