Cake toppers that won’t make you cringe

Posted by

I have a tingly spot for adorable and creative cake toppers. So, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite cake toppers because they're WAY too cute not to collectively gush over…

[Click on the photos to get more info on any of these cake toppers!]

I love these guys! They aren't even close to cake toppers — this is an aquarium decoration. These guys have an air tube connector to turn them into a bubbling aquarium feature. So, you could use them as a cake topper and then use then again to keep your fishies happy.

These handmade vintage-style owls are just the sweetest little things.

You so rarely see such a gloriously dark cake topper. This is perfect for a goth wedding or a Halloween wedding. It's so pretty and eerie at the same time, I love this one.

Where are my biker couples? I can tell you where they are… grabbing their wallets to jump on this bad-ass cake topper. Oh, and you know what kills me… the little license plate that says “just married.”

This collectible skeleton figurine is absolutely perfect for a Dia de los Muertos wedding, or for any couple who really wants to push that “Til Death” idea! And — this is either going to freak you out or make you happy — they're totally tongue kissing, and it's rad.

Any Mr & Mrs Smith fans out there? Or perhaps, bride and groom police officers? FBI? Gun nuts? This cake topper is bad ass and HAWT.

This is probably my favorite find of ALL TIME — it's zombies, it's comics, it's weddings, it's all those combined, which means AWESOME!

These two dragons are nuzzling, their tails entwined, to form a heart! Aw. Perfect for a medieval wedding, or a geeky wedding, or any wedding because it's freaking awesome!

I love that this cake topper couple looks like they're posing for a funky offbeat wedding booth photo! Sweet!

We've seen quite a few Tim Burton-inspired weddings, so I just had to throw in a Nightmare Before Christmas cake topper.

Who doesn't love a little harmless sexual harassment with their wedding cake. 😉

Of course, if you're not afraid to amp up the sexy on your wedding cake, this one is all sexy/huggy romantic and whatnot.

It's been years since I wrote the post about salt and pepper shakers as cake toppers, but I am STILL crazy about these guys. My mom bought me those flamingos — I just LOVE 'em.

Comments on Cake toppers that won’t make you cringe

  1. I LOVE the all black one! We’re lucky enough to have a talented and awesome friend making our cake topper; the two little robots from Portal 2! So cute! And they hold hands! Aaah!

  2. I just bought a really cool (but not budget friendly) cake topper from Etsy shop:buildersstudio. He’s got a bunch of robot themed ones – kinda cool – I had to justify it by saying, “we’ll use it as the cake topper for every anniversary milestone!”

  3. The cake topper I got has a bride holding a fishing reel, and she’s “caught” her groom. It’s perfect for us because we met on the Plenty of Fish website, plus a lot of my family is from Newfoundland, which is the fishing capital of Canada.

  4. I have the dragon heart cake topper. We bought it while on a vacation. He loves dragons and I love silver and hearts. It was perfect. Our wedding is in September!

    • Oh my goodness how awesome to be reading this article and then find you talking about the sculpture I made for you! I still remember making your purple bunny topper, thank you again for the privilege and thank you for sharing my work here, this made my day to stumble upon. Small world!

    • this is an old post, but i wanted to say that midnight orange does great work in general. she made me a figurine that’s a mom and a baby being embraced by the “angel” daddy because my husband passed away a few weeks before our son was born. i love that little figurine.

  5. I personally am not a fan of the “traditional” cake topper, dressed up being “crazy”. I DO like the idea of s&p shakers, though. So many cute & nuzzling ones!
    I ended up getting my (very traditional and cute) cake topper from the dollar store.
    My cousin is making our wedding cake. So grand total cost for dessert for 200 people — $1. Awesome.

  6. I have spent way WAY too much time looking at cake toppers on etsy.

    I think I’m getting mine from this seller, hand stitched fabric birds (pretty pricey, but sooo sweet and cute): http://www.etsy.com/shop/cottonbirddesigns

    These are wooden figurines painted to look like you, and there is a DIY option too: http://www.etsy.com/shop/goosegrease

    This seller has some cute white ceramic figurines in pairs: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BROOKLYNrehab?ref=pr_shop_more

    There are some VERY cool cake toppers here, I especially love the sugar skulls! http://www.etsy.com/shop/sweetiecaketopper?ref=seller_info

    I have also had a lot of luck searching in the etsy vintage section for “pair figurines” or however you want to search for it, salt and pepper shakers might be good to search for too (since it wouldn’t necessarily be listed as cake toppers), lots of cute and unique things pop up! I would just make sure to convo the seller and make sure of what the size and weight is so the cake doesn’t cave in with some massive figurines.
    A lot of people seem to have these brass swans: http://www.etsy.com/listing/60902373/pair-of-brass-swans-vintage

    Cute mice!: http://www.etsy.com/listing/56043744/vintage-gold-ceramic-field-mice?ref=sr_list_12&ga_search_query=pair+figurines&ga_page=7&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_facet=vintage
