Cake Decorating Ideas That Are Meant to Help Brides Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, as do the pieces that build them up: centerpieces, wedding dresses, favors, and wedding cakes. The wedding cake, being one of the those must items, can be done in so many different ways and it can sometimes be hard to sort through all of the cake decorating ideas. An important thing to remember is that they are ideas, suggestions, and simply possibilities and not really rules. Of course, the cake decorating ideas that you are likely to encounter are going to be based on both tradition and the way cakes have been decorated in the past and on ways in which you can push on those traditions. As you sort through these decoration ideas, you can pick and choose between traditional and non-traditional designs. Some brides prefer pulling from the more traditional wedding cake decorating ideas because it can be a more sentimental route. However, adhering to a tradition does not mean it has to be in a traditional way. For example, wedding cake toppers are a traditional aspect of wedding cake decorations -that bride and groom at the top of the cake have been there since before you were born- but that doesn't mean you can't put a fun twist to the design.

Other Areas of Cake Decorating to Consider Along with using unique wedding cake toppers you should take a look at mixing up the wedding cake shape, colors, and even the cake-y-ness.
  • You have choices in the shape of your cake from its height to its form. Will you choose a round cake or square? Or will you go way out of the box and create your own shape? Will you have three tiers or two? Or Will you use cupcakes?
  • Another area people are branching out are in the color of their cake. Typically, people choose a white frosted cake as its base color, but why not mix it up?
  • Do you need cake? Some couples are pushing through this tradition by using pies and other desert options in place of the traditional wedding cake. Keep in mind that choosing pies would limit your decorating options (though there are some great "Monogram" cake toppers that are great for wedding pies!)

A Unique Cake Topper that Will Light Up Your Wedding

 

A Unique Cake Topper that Will Light Up Your Wedding

Vintage Round Light-Up Wedding Cake Topper

I used to always wonder exactly how glass cake toppers worked. Of course, there is the assumption that they work like any other, but then they light up, and I would get really confused. The etched glass light up cake toppers here at wedding collectibles are bade with a base that can be molded into the top tier of the wedding cake making the base invisible. Basically, all you would do on the wedding day is flip the switch that is in the slot  where the glass fits and then put the glass piece in, and wallah! You have a beautiful glass cake topper lit in the color of your choice that looks as if it is floating atop your cake.  We like the cake topper featured above because its round cut and vintage design offers a softness that adds elegance and romance to any wedding. Then, the light up feature gives the design a new edge that hints a contemporary vibe keeping your wedding classy and up to date. 

 

Open Heart Light-Up Wedding Cake Topper

Wedding collectibles offers so many different designs within the etched glass category to go with just about any theme. The above "Open Heart" cake topper will work universally with just about any wedding theme, but there are light up glass cake toppers that fit perfectly with beach, religious, fantasy, vintage, country, or seasonal. These cake toppers really are a unique option for that bride looking to have something different, something special, to make her wedding perfect. What is more is that these cake toppers a personalizeable and easily becomes a family heirloom. 

Beach Wedding Acrylic Heart Starfish Cake Topper

If you are not a fan of the light up feature, but you like the look of the etched glass, you have two (really more than that, but we are going to talk about two), options. The first is to simply not turn on the the light up feature. This is the route you want to go if you have your heart set on a cake topper designed to light up. The second is to take a peek at the etched glass cake toppers that we offer without the light up feature. Both create that effortless look that will melt into any wedding theme and design.
