Over 65 unique wedding cake toppers to personalise your dessert

People

People wedding cake toppers have come a long way. Not only can a perfect replica of the couple be made, but you can have your figurines in royal icing, porcelain, wood and more. Couples are also choosing to include their pets and children as part of their cake toppers and we love it! The more the merrier we say.

Animals

Who doesn't have a favourite animal? Perhaps your partner adopted one for you as a gift, or they remind you of a beloved trip together. From exotic birds, mystical creatures and safari animals we've seen them all top our couples cakes. The beauty of these toppers is that you can go to town and let your imagination fly. Pile on the plastic toys, mini knitted cuddly varieties or add a touch of nostalgia with your favourite childhood figures. Dinosaurs, unicorns and flamingoes are all welcome!

Lasercut Wedding Cake Toppers

Lasercut wedding cake toppers are probably the most popular choice when it comes to decorating your dessert. Available in wooden and acrylic designs, they are easy to personalise with quotes, your new married name or your wedding date. As a result, you have a beautiful piece that can be brought out on your anniversary too. We love a bit of wedding recycling here at Rock My Wedding!

Wire

Nearly claiming the top spot as the most popular wedding cake topper are wire designs. We love to see them intertwined into the couples names or words that have special meanings. Our favourite to date has to be a 'finally' wire cake topper that perfectly encapsulated the feeling of many couples after having to postpone their days due to the pandemic. A close second is a 'lobsters' cake topper because clearly, the couple are huge Friends fans just like us!

Personal Wedding Cake Toppers

It's always a talking point to choose a personal memento to complement your wedding cake. You can match your theme with a beach hut cake topper for a coastal wedding or an aeroplane to pay homage to your profession. Some of our absolute favourite personalised wedding cake toppers have been the most simple... Such as a Polaroid photo perched on the top.

Bunting

Bunting cake toppers are a great way of keeping the budget under control without compromising on style. DIY your own using two wooden skewers and kraft paper, perfect if you fancy getting creative.

Flowers

Sometimes you can't help but keep things simple and top a beautifully classic wedding cake with flowers. Single stems or an oasis of blooms look equally striking. Choose colours that complement your cake design or stand out to give it extra oomph.

Food

What could be a sweeter addition to your wedding cake than food? We've seen sweets, macaroons, doughnuts and more grace the top tier. Charlotte and Ryan chose miniature Colin the caterpillars to stand tall on their wedding cake, and we love the addition of a sugar shard to add height to Lola and Edu's single-tier wedding cake.
