Handmade origami cake topper

Origami is one of the Asian arts that have always intrigued the population of other continents. And it is my opinion that we should be fascinated about this art, because not many people can say that they can understand or even practice it. But, although it requires a lot of work and patience origami is very popular when talking about wedding decorations; and cake toppers do not make an exception.

Handmade  gum paste cake topper

In my opinion gum paste is one of the ingredients that can be used the easiest in order to decorate a cake or to create a cake topper. Gum paste also requires a lot of patience and attention to details but the effort is worthed, because the result is delicious handmade cake toppers that will make the entire wedding guest want to taste it.

Handmade paper flower bouquet

Paper flower bouquet is a new trend among the young nonconformist brides. Easy to make, a paper flower bouquet will bring the colors you need to make your cake special. Although some ecologists might argue that many trees are cut in order to obtain the paper used for this cake topper, other would say that having actual flowers as cake topper is worse than paper flowers. Creating a paper flower bouquet is not easy, as you have to know something about origami art, but the result is definitely breathtaking.

Handmade wood carved love birds

Wood carving is another art that I have always admired. It has always been a mystery how you can take a piece of wood and start carving it till you obtain a shape that is so perfect and so wonderful. I have tried it myself once, but I gave up because I wasn’t getting anywhere. But, as you can see in this cake topper, this art has amazing outcomes.

Handmade deer felt cake topper

Do you remember Bamby? Bamby it’s a baby dear from a cartoon, that grows up in the forest surrounded by all the other animals who are her friends. When I first saw this cake topper I remembered Bamby, because these dears are as cute and sweet as Bamby was. Made by hand, these deer are crafted from high quality felt. The adornments are a combination of felt, ribbons, fabric flowers, and vintage buttons handpicked.  So if you remember Bamby or if you just love these tiny animals, chose them as your wedding cake topper.

Handmade stone carved cake topper

I said before that I find wood carving amazingly difficult. But I find stone carving a lot more difficult. You have to really have talent in order to know where and how hard to hit the stone in order to break as you want it to break. I admire people who can carve into stone, and I would definitely have such a topper on my wedding cake in order to show my appreciations for their work.

Handmade cotton candy heart cake topper

I don’t know about you but when I saw this cake topper I became speechless. This is definitely my top choice when talking about cake toppers.

Seasonal personalized wedding cake toppers

I am sure that among all of you there are brides to be that have special feelings for a certain season. I admit that I love fall. If so, why not make your wedding represent your love for that feeling? I have seen many seasonal themed weddings and I have to admit that those weddings were the ones I loved most. There are special cake toppers you can use for each and every season: you can go with leaf cake toppers for fall weddings, with snowflake wedding cake toppers for winter, or with fan cake toppers for a beach themed wedding in the summer. All these cake toppers can become custom and unique if you engrave your names and wedding date on them, or if you print a picture of the two of you.

Hobby themed personalized wedding cake toppers

Hobbies play a very important role in our lives, as they make us relax and enjoy something else besides our work and family. Having hobby themed weddings is a very popular and unique trend and I have to admit I love the idea. My best friends are passionate about fishing, so when they got married they had a custom wedding cake topper representing them going fishing. The groom was holding a net and the bride was holding the fish they caught. It was unique, funny, custom and elegant at the same time.
