Wedding Cake Bling!

31 May 2011

Gone are the days of plastic bride and groom figurines topping a wedding cake. Nowadays, there is an abundance of amazing styles of cake jewellery to 'blingafy' your cake. The wedding cake is second only to the bride's wedding gown, so naturally the topper should make a statement!

Wedding cake toppers have been a prominent feature at weddings for centuries, with marzipan roses, birds and cherubs gracing the top of wedding cakes in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Then, the 1840 marriage of Queen Victoria of England to Prince Albert caused a sensation when figures of the regal bride and groom took centre stage. It was only a matter of time before every wedding cake featured tiny bride and groom figurines.

Today, cake jewellery is still a lovely way to personalise your day and can fit every theme and taste. There are toppers to reflect your cultural or religious heritage, complement your hobbies or profession, or to add some humour to your day; in Swarovski Crystal, glass, ceramic, acrylic and even personalized photo cake toppers plus a whole lot more.

If you have an heirloom piece, such as your grandmother's precious brooch, you can work with your baker to add it into your top tier, or, perhaps even your parents' cake topper as your ‘something old'.

Unusual wire and bead cake decorations have evolved into a striking, contemporary alternative to sugar flowers. (And you can keep them for years to come). They are also a more cost effective alternative.
