Be different and design your own cake topper
June 03, 2009
Can't find exactly what you're looking for in terms of a cake topper for your wedding cake in catalogs or on the internet? Then make it yourself.
Some industry experts have reported that couples are finding ways to personalize their big day and cut down on costs at the same time by creating their own topper for the wedding cake.
However, this doesn't mean the idea is only good for brides who have artistic talent. Some couples have opted to use an important family heirloom or a photograph on a stand as a way to place their perfect mark on the cake.
For the craftier, it's time to get out that glue gun and gather materials to create something unique and special. One idea involves constructing a symbol that is representative of the newly married couple. For example, finding a way to combine the initials of both parties involved can create something fun and interesting.
If you do decide for a more elaborate topper, be sure you have plenty of time to come up with sketches and that you have extra material to account for any missteps or accidents.
