The top of the wedding cake is an area of great debate. The decorations that adorn this most important of positions are probably more varied that any other part of the design. The traditional wedding cake topper is a bride and groom all dressed in their finery sitting on the top level of a three layer cake. Of course, the shapes and sizes as well as the designs of cakes have changed dramatically over the years, but at the same time so have the primary decorations. Some like their cakes to be low key, and just place a simple floral dispaly on top, frequently sugar crafted so that every bit can bea eaten, whilst some like to inject a little fun into the proceedings and so have a bride and groom but in a humorous style. In some cases the figures are created to be caricatures of the bride and groom themselves, although you will need a very talented sugar crafts person to be able to do anything as elaborate as this. Other variations include a cake that is delicately arranged on the top, but with a message crafted in sugar around the the side of the cake. In some cases this has even amounted to a poem from the groom to his bride, which can take in all the layers of the cake. A really lovely idea!
