Modern Cake Topper Ideas

I've been chatting to two DIY party mamma's recently who are both working on first birthday parties for their bubs.  One of the things that has come up and been discussed in detail is the cake topper...

In my opinion a cake topper is never a bad thing!  Whether it's an animal figurine, a string of bunting or a candle.  Even a cake you've whipped up for afternoon tea deserves a few fresh flowers.   So I've done a little round up for you... some of these are pretty easy to DIY and if you can't or don't want to then there is a such a wide selection online, you are sure to find something that suits your party style and budget.

Please click on the images to see more details.

Washi tape is a really simple way to liven up some cupcakes and 
these ones displayed at different heights are just gorgeous.  

Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper
This modern take on a wedding cake couple is adorable and 
can be custom made with your eye, hair, skin colours at ReadyGo on Etsy.  

What a cute idea - glitter pipe cleaners... and you could do any letters or shapes.

Heart Trees Cake Topper Set - Bamboo - Wedding Cake Topper - Rustic Wedding - Modern Wedding
I love this topper - it's five individual trees with heart blossoms.  It could really go on any 
occasion of cake; it would look as great on a baby shower cake as it would on a wedding one.  

These silhouette toppers are made from acrylic and have a more classic feel to them. 
I love the one on the right.  

Balloons make great cake toppers - try a clear one with confetti
inside or a foil balloon of the birthday kid's age.  Add some tassels for colour.  

This is really sweet.  Cookie cutters in the bride and groom's initials.  
Do yourself a favour and click through to the link of this wedding - gorgeous!!  

Go on... get creative.
