I’m a total sucker for a cute wedding cake topper, so both of these topper designs were sent to me by friends in the know! Thanks ladies!

First we have the ridiculously adorable custom wooden toppers from Goose Grease on Etsy. Kelly and Michelle make up this Brooklyn, New York team of artists and create tiny customized wooden doll versions of you and your fiance, and if you like, your whole family and even your pet! They are made with non-toxic paints and varnish so you can feel safe putting them on top of your delicious wedding cake or cupcakes, and will want to keep them around as mementos (and toys for your future kids?) for years to come.

Next up are the whimsical custom ribbon creations of Chapeau de Gateau. These intricate wedding cake toppers are made by Toronto artist Alison Dawson out of beautiful Mokuba ribbon from Japan. I’m amazed at her ability to emulate the textures and detail of cake frosting with fabric, and I adore the addition of your name and wedding date on the bottom of each special piece. Visit the Chapeau de Gateau website, blog, or Etsy shop for more information.

  1. So sweet! I like classic styles, so I love the elegant toppers from Chapeau de Gateau, but I think it would be really fun to make the Goose Grease toppers for us and all the members of our family. Great ideas!

  2. Those cake toppers are SO adorable! (:

  3. These ideas are wonderfully innovative. I wasn’t aware that you could use cake toppers other than a mini-bride-and-groom doll. But these ribbon toppers from Chapeau de Gateau are absolutely exquisite. I like that the ribbons match the design of the cake. Very elegant. The wooden dolls, on the other hand, are very cute. Perfect for quirky couples.

  4. ha…these wedding cake toppers are great! These would definitely be a great accessory to any cake or a great pre-wedding day gift for any bride and groom looking for a topper. -Timothy

  5. Those are adorable wedding toppers, hope I get the chance to shoot a wedding with those toppers!

  6. A Custom cake Topper is a great way to show your individuality no matter what the occasion. A unique outlook on any special event can turn it into a memorable event. Cake Toppers can be anything that you want from traditional wedding figurines to nontraditional dancing, cultural, or humorous characters. Custom Wedding Cake Topper Depending on the theme of your wedding, you may have a specialized cake and decorations go along with the over all theme. However, the wedding cake topper will need to match too and finding a standard one may not work. But, there is the option of a custom wedding cake topper. Wedding Cake Toppers The perfect wedding begins with a great couple. With that in place, everything should be just a little bit easier. Planning a wedding is still stressful on everyone involved, but support and love can help you get past that. Personalized cake toppers are meant to reflect the individual the cake is meant for, or the event for which the cake was created, so they are a lot of fun to design and really add a custom look to an edible centerpiece.
