Ok, the big date is set and it’s time to design the Topper for your wedding cake….where to begin?
Your wedding cake is something that you will remember forever. And doesn’t big business know it? The cake industry in the United States is a $30bn per year industry with wedding cakes forming the upper echelon of high quality cakes. That one special day needs to be perfect and there are options aplenty to get the look and taste you are after.
But how do you set off the perfect cake with a finishing touch that will tell your guests just who the lucky bride and groom really are? Selecting a Topper can be an arduous decision and something that can make or break your cake. Let’s look at how to make it!
The first thing you need to consider when creating a wedding cake topper is:
“How do I want to portray the bride and groom on their wedding cake?”
Are they fun loving? Sophisticated and stylish? Are their cultural traditions that need to be taken into account? All these things will be of importance – let’s face it, the last thing you want to do is create a humorous cake topper of the Queen of England bench-pressing the soon to be King…that might work for some people, but for royalty would probably be a strict no-no.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun, in fact, we love making the funny Toppers – it is great to see so many people having fun on their special day.
After you have identified the “style” you are after, it is important to select the pose you would like. If possible, try and find photos of yourselves in the pose you want. Even better would involve you wearing the outfits or at least have photos of the outfits you will be wearing on your special day.
Once you have the outfits and style sorted, you need to consider how you want your face and head to look. Unless your groom is planning on sporting that everlasting handlebar moustache or purple mohawk on his big day, try and find a photo that resembles what the bride and groom will look like on your wedding day. If you can’t, be ready to provide some written instructions regarding how you want the Toppers to look. We recommend taking several photos showing a front view and side views from the left and right. Detail in the face is important.
The next thing to consider is – does anything else need to be on this cake? Strange question? Not Really. Lots of couples nowadays have other special family members from kids, through to pets through to that classic car that rarely leaves the garage but is NEVER getting sold! If you want others to take pride of place on your wedding cake, make sure you have some high quality photos from the angles you want to display.
