When budgeting for a wedding, most bride-to-be’s feel that a considerable amount must be set aside not just for the dress but for the wedding cake as well. A wedding dress can cost a lot to look as well as feel beautiful and comfortable, but a wedding cake is a different matter! Check out our many ideas for wedding cake toppers and decorations below to get a cake that’s not just affordable but also delicious and a sight to behold!
You may think that sweets are great only for cakes at children’s birthday parties, but the right candies can suit a wedding too. Take a cue from the unique wedding cake toppers Australia has at www.choicecakes.com and add chocolate to your cake! Hershey’s kisses or chocolate chips, for example, are a delicious garnish to just about any cake flavor. Sprinkles and marshmallows you often see as toppings in ice cream and cupcakes can brighten up a plain wedding cake. If your wedding motif is green, why not go for M&Ms in green and even red and blue for a fun touch!
“But biscuits are for snacks and tea, not for a wedding cake!” Not exactly! When used well, biscuits, pretzels, and even graham crackers can do wonders to make your cake not just look but also taste scrumptious. They can be used as a good cake bottom or base and even a layer between different cake flavors. Crushed graham crackers, which are used as a cheesecake crust, can be used as decoration, especially when powdered over wedding cakes with a gold or brown motif or an autumn theme.
Eating cake is really considered a treat nowadays because it is such a rich and, well, fattening dessert, but that doesn’t have to end there! Get some nutrients out of the deal too by adding healthy as well as edible cake toppers in the form of fruits. Berries and cherries are the most popular toppings, but you can also go for more exotic fruits like watermelon, mango, and avocado, cut in the shape and style you like!

Nuts like sugared almonds or chopped cashew nuts, can be an interesting and healthy cake topping too, though you might want to steer clear unless you’re absolutely certain none of your wedding guests have allergies to nuts.
For non-edible decorating ideas, ribbons of silk or satin and lace can do wonders to dress up a simple wedding cake, but be sure to keep these strategically placed on the outside of the cake. Also don’t forget that with fondant icing and gum paste, you can create just about any figure to make your wedding cake as unique and striking as possible!
