Topping your cake with pizzazz

If you’ve been looking for a way to avoid those boring plastic bride and groom cake toppers, you may have noticed that a lot of the topping options out there just plain suck. Lenox china Swans? Sure, these birds mate for life, but it’s been done. Little gazebos? Snore.

Jazzing up your wedding cake is as easy as one, two, three when you grab yourself a single initial, double letters, or a trio of glam toppers from Toppers With Glitz.

Wow your guests with letters of love!

You choose your design (from monograms to cut-out images), your font style and size, your crystal colors, and accessories, and Toppers With Glitz will create your custom topper in as little as six weeks. Don’t expect these toppers to come cheap, however. A five inch high letter with both sides embellished featuring three different crystal colors will cost you almost $200.

  1. Ooh I love them!!! I’ve posted my wedding cake on my blog for you to have a geez at. Hope you like! Cake toppers aren’t terribly common in Oz actually, its more flowers or cupcakes

    Wow!!!!!! Your cake(s) looks gorgeous in the photos, Dataceptionist! I bet it looked even more amazing in person. I love the tire tracks – is there some sort of backstory there??

    Also, love your dress and your attendants’ dresses – I had a peek at your flickr site, hope that’s alright.

    Everybody, go look at that cake, stat!

    Those are so cute!

    We’re using Hot Wheels, even though I’m in agonies about removing them from the packaging. Ah, well – I would never have sold my 2, 1964 Lincoln Continental convertibles (one black, one white) anyway, so I should just bite the bullet.

    Bacon’s Mom, your “agonies” over removing the Continentals from their original packaging officially results in a geekier cake top than the Han Solo and Leia ones we used (made extra-geeky by my crafty husband, who built bases they could stand upon).

    Congratulations! 🙂

    I don’t think I would have gone for letters if I had the unfortunate monogram of “VD” as pictured.

    My parent’s next door neighbor is a professional baker and will be sculpting a castle out of white chocolate for our cake topper (it’s a Renaissance wedding). I’m so excited about it!

    Come on, these are so tacky. I can’t be the only one who feels that way, right? It’s like brides who put rhinestones in their hair or on their fake nails!
