Custom Bobblehead Wedding Cake Topper

I think it would be very hard for your friends and family to forget if you had a custom made wedding cake topper of bobblehead versions of yourselves. Whoopass Enterprises offers bride and grooms this very option. The topper is fully customizable. You can even add accessories and change the colors to suit your needs.  This is truly a unique piece that no one could exactly replicate because it looks like you.

The Naked Wedding Cake

This is a concept that has grown in popularity in recent years and is very simple. It’s a wedding cake with either no icing or without the outer layer. If you eliminate the outer layer, parts of cake will show “naked” or bare. This creates a lovely aesthetic and actually has some benefits as well. Eliminating the outer layer or all of the icing all together would cut down on the sugar and may also cut down on the price as well.

Watercolor Wedding Cake

Artists, rejoice! This is a truly unique and beautiful cake that would be right up your alley. The cake is actually painted with an edible paint. Some design ideas that can be used with this medium are flowers, abstract patterns, or ombre. If none of these ideas resonate with you, think of a design yourself and really let your creativity run wild!

Golden Cake

A hint of gold in your cake could really give it an elegant flair. Edible gold flakes are usually what are utilized to produce this look. You can put as much or as little as you like. You can also add other pieces to it to really give it a unique look. Try adding flowers or other decorations.

Berry Cake

If you are looking for a tasty way to incorporate your theme colors or any colors into your wedding cake, try adding berries as a decorative topper. The vibrant colors of strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries can really add a hint of elegance, while also being delicious! The bonus is that unlike edible gold which actually doesn’t have a taste, these berries will add to the flavor.

Chocolate Wedding Cake

Wedding cakes are traditionally white and usually have the iconic almond flavoring. That’s all fine and good, but what about the chocolate lovers out there? Not to mention, it could also give you a break of looking at all the white at a wedding, while still looking amazing!

Pink Lady Cake

Weddings are a truly magical time and should be a day to remember. This is why it is important to take into account your likes, dislikes, and interests when thinking about your wedding cake. Whether you go with a more traditional route or a unique one is up to you, but remember to take your partner’s wants into consideration as well. You want the day to be a memorial one for everyone involved. However, also remember to let your imagination and creativity run wild.
