Take Five: wedding cake toppers

Add a personal touch to your big day bake with one of these gorgeous wedding cake toppers

personalised wedding cake topper from etsy

Personalised couples name cake topper, from £12.95, AllHerGlory at Etsy.com

This cool calligraphy is hand-drawn by Etsy shop owner Louby before being printed out on a range of cards, including glitter, holographic, pearlescent or mirror. If you fear your names are far too long, there’s a ‘hubby and wifey’ version.


Sculpted personalised topper, made to order, Topper the World

Has shopping local has been a big part of your planning? If so, Glasgow’s Topper the World should be on your radar. Prices start from £90 and commissions can include children, pets and job/hobby props.

not on the high street acrylic topper

Floating wedding cake topper, £22.95, Notonthehighstreet.com

We can totally see this floating acrylic number gracing a minimalist bake with fluffy buttercream. And we’d be taking it home from the reception to give it a new lease of life in a plant pot at home…

weddingstar pet cake topper

Pet cake toppers, £17.99, Weddingstar

If you’re going to the trouble of having something personalised made, don’t forget about your four-legged friends. Weddingstar has a selection of dog breeds available to choose from, with this ultra-cute Shih Tzu amongst the pack.

paperchase love cake topper

Love topper, £7, Paperchase

As if anyone ever needs an excuse to go to Paperchase? The new wedding range is especially splurge-worthy – the hen collection in particular – but this copper topper won’t break the bank at a bargainous £7.
