Whoo-hoo! We’re this close to posting our next FAB wedding and can’t wait to share it with you early next week, but in the meantime, we’ve got a fun FAB find for you on this fabulous Friday. Go grab your favorite adult beverage (it’s ok being that it’s Friday, right?) and settle in. Go ahead. I can wait. This is a big one and you won’t to miss any of it! 🙂
Ideas We Love – Unique Cake & Cupcake “Toppers”
Make your cake or cupcakes even spiffier by including a cake topper customized for you as a couple. Heck, you don’t even need to put it on or near your cake, but could use one (or two) as decoration on your dessert buffet or guest book table. How cute are some of these?
Not surprisingly, Etsy is a GREAT resource for custom cake toppers!Hmmm….noticing a theme here? ;-D
This next one is definitely one of my favorites. So simple and sweet.
There’s many more besides the feathered variety from which to pick though…
Or how about these modern bride and grooms? Very cool!
I love these meticulously detailed paper sculptures, yet they also have an elegant simplicity about them.
Or perhaps something even a little more personalized is your cup of tea…
Love her Anthropologie shopping bag and his UT “Hook ’em Horns” tie! That could be us is she were blond and he had more of Bill’s luxurious head of hair!This one would be especially perfect for a lovely farm wedding.
Interesting! What do you think of the Lego’s B&G? I’m undecided if it’s funky cool modern or just kinda weird.
Or, of course, you can always go vintage and use your parent’s or even your grandparent’s wedding cake topper. Retro and a sweet gesture as the same time.
Or if you’re feeling especially crafty, you can make your own. Love this DIY bird’s nest one from Once Wed! Click on the photos for the full set of directions at Once Wed.
If you’re having cupcakes instead of cake, they don’t need to feel left out. How about some custom cupcake flags?
Click on the photo below for directions from MSL on how to make these festive DIY flags.
Even some of our couples have even gotten in on the act!
Julie & Andrew had perfectly dressed chocolate covered strawberries on their top two cupcakes…
and some Ninja fighters sprinkled throughout the display. Hey, like we said, sometimes they don’t have to be on top of the cupcakes! 😉
Love the B&G wearing lampshades that Lauren & Dennis had on their cake!
And Sally-Anne & Michael’s cake featured their three adorable cats!
Well, all this looking at cakes and cupcakes has made me hungry so I’m outta here. Hope we’ve given you some food for thought on this FAB Friday!
We’d love to hear what you have planned for your cake (or cupcakes, or pies, or tarts, etc.) in the comments. Happy weekend!
