There’s a lot of decisions that go into designing a wedding cake, perhaps more choices than you’ve even considered. The cake selection alone can be overwhelming…. cake flavors, mix ins, fillings, icing flavors. What about the size of the cake? Are you serving just cake to your guests or supplementing with cupcakes, donuts, or other alternative wedding desserts? How do you know how much to order? Thats another topic for another blog post…. and don’t you worry, its coming soon! Today we just want to show you a couple different aesthetic finishing touches that have been popular in 2018.

First up is cake toppers! Our recommended source for cake toppers is Etsy. You can find a variety of stock or custom toppers that range from black laser cutouts, to figurines to sparkly embellishments. Options include phrases such as “happily ever after", “i do”. “mr. and mrs. ____.” We love when couples add a personal touch like a pet or a hobby (see pictures below).

Another classic option (and our personal favorite) is adding fresh flowers to your wedding cake. Often the florist has a couple extra blooms/greenery that we can tuck in upon arrival. This really ties the cake into the rest of your wedding decor. Nothing elevates a simple cake like some fresh florals!

Cake topper vs fresh florals… you cant go wrong with either choice! At To Di For we do our best to make your cake delicious and beautiful from the inside out. Email for more information on custom cakes!
