Wedding cake toppers are certainly one of the details our brides have excelled in and we’ve seen an endless number of show stoppers in our time.

When Creative Director Adam married his RAF wife, a gorgeous rose gold aeroplane adorned their tiers of sponge playing homage to Lizzie’s profession. It’s always a talking point to choose a personal memento to complement the icing and florals. For a modern take on the classic figurines, you can have mini lookalikes of yourself crafted. Although, some of our absolute favourite personalised cake toppers have been the most simple… Such as a Polaroid photo perched on the top.

Animals and Toys

What could be cuter than a charming duo of animals to top off your cake? 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, flamingoes and lego people are all welcome!


First of all, bunting cake toppers can be used for so many cakes. They are very versatile and can also be fabulous for birthdays, baby showers and christenings. I’ve made my own DIY version in the past using two wooden skewers and kraft paper so they’re a great option if you fancy getting creative. They can also be a great way of keeping the budget under control without compromising on style. Keep your eyes peeled because we’ll soon be sharing a tutorial on how to make your own.

Etched and Laser Cut

If you favour a boho or rustic style, then a wooden cake topper is probably right up your street. You could even personalise it with your new married name or initials. As a result, you have a beautiful piece that can be brought out on your anniversary too.  We love a bit of wedding recycling at RMW! However, if you fancy a similar look but in a different material, it’s worth browsing all of the acrylic and wire options available too.

So, with all those ideas for ways to decorate that beautiful cake of yours, you now have what you need to make those cake cutting photos fancy. What are you placing on the top of your cake? What’s the most innovative and unique cake topper you’ve seen?
