There is a lot to know about wedding cake toppers, so let’s get to it!

What is a Wedding Cake Topper?

Besides a wedding cake statuette or decor that sits on top of it, wedding cake toppers represent the happy couple. So, the question here is, what would represent you both? Flowers, greenery, a cute figurine or a funny one, maybe?

Traditionally, wedding cake toppers consist of a bride and groom figurine that sit on top of the wedding cake. Nowadays, the trend is personalizing these classic figurines to show off the personality of the bride and groom to be. They range from classic and elegant to the very geeky, including some highly personalized toppers that look exactly like the bride and groom!

The Secret Story of the Wedding Cake Toppers

Where did wedding cake toppers originate? The exact details of its origin are surrounded by mystery. Nobody really knows when this tradition was incorporated into weddings but legend tells us that over a century ago, a baker’s daughter was about to be married and asked her father for a special wedding gift. She asked him to create a symbol of the love that she and her future husband professed to each other. Therefore, everybody would be able to see it.

After careful consideration, the father decided upon a unique creation, a gorgeous wedding cake with two fabulous figurines on top of the highest tier. Obviously, the figurines were a representation of his daughter and her future husband. The baker had created the wedding cake topper as the perfect symbol of love and wedded bliss.

On the day of her wedding, the daughter was so moved by the figurines her father had so lovingly crafted that she stated that it was the best of all the gifts. The wedding cake and the topper were placed where they could be seen by everybody at the reception.

Maybe this tale is just an anecdote but it doesn’t take away from the importance and meaning of the wedding cake toppers. Maybe now, you’ll look at the toppers under a very different light. 🙂

Tips To Find Your Perfectly Unique Topper!

Read these tips before choosing your perfect wedding cake topper:

1The cake topper must be a piece that reflects your style as well as the cake’s. It may be a tad more expensive but it will be worth it. Remember, this is a keepsake. If you’re on a tight budget you can DIY your own, or you may choose the traditional figurines that are sold in stores or a few simple flowers to show your love and decorate your wedding cake. Just make sure that they match both yours and the wedding cake styles.

2Let’s get creative! You can choose from a personalized cake topper that looks just like  both of you or something that represents a mutual interest or a shared hobby. The personalized wedding cake topper is a very creative detail and it adds an additional layer of romance, sparkle and glamour to the wedding reception.

3Ask your master baker to suggest a few cake topper design ideas that match your chosen confection and pick the one you feel represents you best!

4Now, here’s a romantic, ecological and affordable idea. Honor your parents, grandparents or somebody very close to you by adorning your wedding cake with the topper that they used at their wedding! Adorable, amiright?

5Sizing the cake topper. The wedding topper should complement the cake both in design and material, and also in size. The top of the cake is where the topper usually sits, so the topper should be in proportion to the top tier. Traditionally the cake topper height was half of the diameter of the top tier. Modern toppers are generally a half an inch taller. As far as the width of the cake topper, it should be no more than that of the cake itself. Again, traditionally the width of the topper should allow for an inch of cake space on either side, although like everything else about weddings, rules are made to be broken. Just make sure the topper does not fall off the cake! 🙂

6Consider the weight of the topper. A cake topper that is too heavy, may need additional support in the cake, and you know that means it will cost you more.

No matter what style you choose for your wedding cake topper make sure it matches your personality and your wedding theme. Remember this is a keepsake, a memento from your wedding that you will cherish forever. Wedding cake toppers are not just figurines on top of a cake. They represent the love that flows between two hearts joined forever as one.

There are enough decisions to make when it comes to planning your wedding day, amirite? Arguably the most fun part of planning your wedding is the cake testing day. Sitting around trying dozens of cake combinations, making sure the flavors perfectly compliment each other is a hard day’s work. We are available to help if needed, just saying. 😉

A Wedding Cake Flavors List: Textures and Trends

You picked the cake design but what will the cake taste like? Wedding cakes are made up of tiers or cake layers. Each tier can be a different flavor.

The variety of wedding cake flavors can be overwhelming, to say the least. Let’s start with a list of the most popular wedding cake flavors. Although if you are a trendy bride, you may want to pick one of the latest and trending wedding cake flavors.

Pumpkin squash, dulce de leche, blueberry berry, champagne, lemon, and chocolate are really hot this year. As you can see, they range from the tried-and-true classics to the more elaborate and stylish flavors.

Chiffon Cake: A very light and fluffy cake made with vegetable oil. It can be stored or frozen without drying out.

Sponge Cake: Sponge cake is firmer and good for stacking cake layers on top of one another. It can have different flavors, like vanilla, lemon or Belgian chocolate.

Cheesecake: An alternative to the traditional cake, a baked vanilla cheesecake with a crumbly biscuit base.

Carrot cake: Carrot cake usually has a soft, dense texture, and of course, carrots mixed into the batter.

Banana walnut cake: The banana walnut cake is a sweet and delicious dessert that will impress anyone!

Almond cake: Light, moist and velvety and quite typical of certain parts of Spain. Ole!

Champagne cake: A champagne infused cake with classic vanilla buttercream is the perfect way to celebrate a wedding!

Red Velvet cake: Red Velvet cake is traditionally a red or red-brown layer cake topped with white cream cheese or cooked roux icing.

Spice cake: Traditionally flavored with a mixture of spices. Predominant flavorings include spices such as cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and nutmeg.

Devil’s Food Cake: Devil’s food cake is a moist, airy, rich chocolate layer cake.

Let’s Talk about Frosting

There are just as many options for the frosting or icing as there are for the cake, not only in flavor but in texture and consistency. The Williams-Sonoma cookbook Cake states that “icing is generally thinner and glossier,” while its counterpart frosting is “a thick, fluffy mixture, used to coat the outside of a cake.”

Here’s a breakdown of the most common types of frosting and icing for wedding cakes:

  • Buttercream. This is the most popular frosting flavor made of butter, powdered sugar, and any flavoring you like. Definitely taste test your baker’s buttercream because there are so many variations, each buttercream type can be very different.
  • Meringue. This is a smooth, creamy frosting made with egg whites, sugar and flavorings. This is especially perfect for beach weddings, as it holds up well in the heat and will not melt.
  • Fondant. This is a paste-like icing that gives the sugar a very even finish, giving the cake a smooth texture. It is a bit chewy, so not everyone enjoys the texture when eating it but it can give a very refined look to the finished cake.
  • Ganache. This is chocolate melted with heavy cream. This will give a very shiny glaze to the cake, or it can be whipped for a more “fluffy” effect.

And the trending frosting this year is whipped cream! Yum! Of course, you can always skip the frosting and go for a naked cake or for the 2017 cake of the year, the drip cake!

Now, let’s cover the best wedding cake flavor combinations! 🙂

Fall wedding cake flavors. Gone are the light flavors of citrus and summer fruits. Autumn events favor decadently rich desserts, such as this wedding cake drizzled with salted caramel and decorated with figs.

Best Wedding Cake Flavors, Fillings, and Combinations

Ok, if you are not hungry already, you are about to now. We have already discussed the cake flavor and the icing, but there is also the matter of the filling. How do you combine all three of these glorious, delicious components to create the perfect symphony of wedding cake flavors?

Here is a list of recommended combos that will hopefully wrap the perfect bow on your finalized cake decision.

  • Chocolate-gasm: There is no shame in making every single wedding guest love chocolate as much as you do. Set chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse filling and chocolate buttercream and the guests will be dancing, if not from happiness then from the sugar rush.
  • Vanilla Raspberry-licious: Vanilla sponge cake with raspberry jam filling and a marzipan frosting. Do we need to say more? The tartness of the raspberry will perfectly offset the sweetness of the vanilla and marzipan. And it’s fruit so you can pretend it’s healthy too.
  • Carrot Cream Cheese Craze: We all know (and most of us love) carrot cake. It can be a bit of a divisive topic but if you don’t like carrot cake, we can all agree on one thing, the cream cheese frosting makes it all worth it. And this is a vegetable, so it’s definitely healthy!
  • Need We Say S’More: A traditional bonfire treat meets a classy day in delicious s’mores flavored wedding cake. Accomplish this by having a graham cracker cake set with chocolate ganache, marshmallows, and vanilla buttercream. You can even toast the outside marzipan for full effect.
  • Raspberry Dacquoise Cake. Almond-and-hazelnut meringue joins vanilla buttercream laced with raspberries and crème framboise in this divine standout, complete with sage-green fondant and piped golden raspberries.
  • Lemon meringue buttercream-y: Fresh and summery lemon cake with raspberry mousse and Swiss meringue buttercream filling.

How to Pick Your Perfect Cake Flavor: A Final Word

As you can tell from the lists above, there are an overwhelming number of options to choose from when selecting the perfect wedding cake flavor. So how do you decide? How do you come to the conclusions of what cake will be perfect for your big day?

Here are a few tips:

  • Choose your favorite flavors or wedding cake flavors that have a special meaning to you. Don’t worry about pleasing everyone or making a ‘safe’ choice. After all, this is your cake and your wedding day.
  • Be Mindful of Your Wedding Season or Your Dinner Menu. Are you getting married in the summer? Then a coconut, lime-flavored cake might fit perfectly. Are you having an Italian inspired wedding menu? Then you might want to incorporate some cannoli filling to your cake.
  • Research. Look into what cake flavors are emerging in popularity. Meet with different bakeries and schedule consultations where you can taste the flavors, so you know exactly what you are getting.
  • If you really can’t decide, choose multiple flavors. Who says your cake has to be one flavor? Who says you have to only have one cake, for that matter? There are endless rules of creativity when it comes to weddings these days. If you want multiple cake flavors, order multiple and the guests will surely be delighted to have a choice.

We are happy to report that we have thousands more ideas for wedding cake flavors and combinations to help you choose yours. Check out the photos below!

Choosing wedding cakes is not a simple task. When we start looking for the traditional dessert for our wedding, we discover that there is a huge variety of wedding cakes. They vary not only in number of tiers, but also in decoration and style. Selecting one is a tough decision when there are so many and they are all so beautiful! Let’s see if I can help you pick yours! 🙂

Single-Tier Elegant Wedding Cakes: The Latest Wedding Trend

If you are planning an intimate wedding, you’ll love these cakes. If you are looking for something original and for what’s hot right now, you fall in love with them. And as wedding cakes do not need to be huge to make an impression, these single-tier cakes will stand out for their simplicity and elegance.

These elegant wedding cakes are not ostentatious and therefore allow you to play with texture to turn them into magnificent wedding decor. Translating these works of art into a traditional three-tiered cake would cost you a small fortune. So, splurge and decorate away, it’s only one tier!

These cakes can fit any wedding theme: from bucolic to industrial, from vintage or boho to shabby chic. They will even fit a beach-themed wedding!

Moreover, as the dessert tables and coffee bars trend keeps on growing, wedding cakes are being left uneaten. Such a waste! A single-tier cake will look amazing and I can assure you there will be no crumbs left!

The Whimsical Elegance of The 2-Tiered Wedding Cakes

If you don’t want to bet on the traditional and have a few more guests to feed, go for the 2-tiered wedding cake.

These cakes allow for a range of geometric combinations. For example, you can have a round tier atop a square or hexagonal one, or tiers of different heights with the same or different patterns.

Pull off an elegant industrial or a rustic glam look by mixing metallics and thin layers of buttercream.

Classic and Elegant Wedding Cakes: Three Tiers Of Flavor!

I promise that in one of my next articles, I will tell you the why wedding cakes usually have three tiers – but for now, let’s take a look at some three-tier confection masterpieces.

Are you looking for a glam look? Elevate your frosting from simple to simply elegant with shimmery silver or gold sequins. If your wedding theme is industrial, then cover one of the tiers with metallic accents. For a rustic look, go with a half-dressed or semi-frosted cake with a thin layer of American buttercream. Or cover it with edible pearls, fondant or sugar roses for a vintage look.

¿Que es un cake topper?

Antes que nada, veamos que son los famosos cake toppers. Definitivamente un adorno de la torta de la boda, el cake topper es una representación de la pareja que se encuentra en la parte superior del pastel de bodas.

Tradicionalmente, los muñecos de torta han sido pequeños modelos de los novios que se posan encima de la tarta nupcial. Hoy en día la tendencia es a personalizar los muñecos de torta y su variedad va desde los diseñados especialmente hasta los muñecos de torta graciosos pasando por los que representan un hobby compartido y los que conjugan con el tema de la boda.

La historia secreta de los muñecos de torta

Ahora, echemos un vistazo a la historia de los primeros muñecos de la torta de bodas. La verdad es que nadie sabe realmente cuando se incorporó esta tradición a las bodas. Los detalles exactos de su origen están envueltos en misterio. Pero cuenta la leyenda que hace más de un siglo, la hija de un panadero que estaba a punto de casarse le pidió a su padre que crease un símbolo del grandísimo amor que se profesaba mutuamente la pareja, para que el mundo lo vea.

Después de darle vueltas a varias ideas y deliberar cuidadosamente sobre cada una de ellas, el padre decidió hacer una creación única – un pastel de boda precioso, con dos estatuillas fabulosas en la parte superior de la misma. Las figurillas que se posaban sobre de la torta eran, obviamente, la representación de su hija y su futuro marido. El panadero había creado el cake topper como el símbolo perfecto del amor y la unión de la pareja.

En el día de la boda, la hija, conmovida por los muñecos de torta hechos con tanto amor y afecto por su padre, dijo que ese había sido su mejor regalo. La tarta nupcial y las figurillas fueron colocadas en un lugar destacado en la boda.

Este cuento puede ser simplemente una anécdota, sin embargo, no quedan dudas sobre el significado y la importancia de los muñecos de torta o cake toppers en la tarta nupcial.

  1. El cake topper debe ser una pieza que refleje tu estilo tanto como el de la torta que adorna. Puede ser que te salga un poquito mas caro, pero valdrá la pena. Si tu presupuesto es ajustado puedes optar por el tradicional muñequito de boda que se encuentra en muchos negocios o por unas simples flores que decoren la tarta nupcial y reflejen tu amor, se adapten al estilo del pastel de bodas y a tu gusto.
  2. La creatividad ante todo. Puedes escoger un cake topper personalizado que se parezca a tí y a tu media naranja o algo que represente un hobby o un interés compartido, un recuerdo especial de un viaje, etc. Un cake topper de boda personalizado es un detalle muy creativo y añade una capa adicional de romance, brillo y glamour a la recepción.
  3. Pídele a tu maestro pastelero que te sugiera algunas ideas de diseño del cake topper. Y elige la que sientas que es la mejor opción para ti.
  4. Utiliza los muñequitos de boda de alguien de la familia. Puedes hacer honor a tus padres, abuelos, o alguien muy cercano a ti adornando tu pastel de boda con el cake topper de esa persona. No sólo añadirán un gran valor emocional a la decoración, sino también rendirán homenaje a alguien especial.

La idea es que sea cual sea el estilo que elijas para tu cake topper haz que refleje de tu personalidad, tu estilo y tu matrimonio. Eso lo hará una recuerdo especial para ser apreciado siempre. Los cake toppers no son sólo decoraciones sobre un pastel. Sirven como el símbolo del amor que fluye entre dos corazones que se unen como uno para siempre!
