Cheeky "Oops!" cake topper in aisle four of the craft store! Is mama celebrating a shotgun wedding or a surprise pregnancy? It's hard to tell, but I spied this decoration and wondered what others would make of it. What's your take, is it tasteless to celebrate an unplanned pregnancy with brazen decorations and jokes, or just an honest sign of the times?
Sure, there are many elements to a couple's big day, but if there's anything I'm excited about this wedding season, it's the cake! Since cupcakes are still going strong, I'm seeing a lot of small cakes surrounded by either those, or homemade treats like pies and cookies. And adorning these cakes are a variety of cake toppers, many of them DIY or handmade with a twist on the traditional. See some surprising toppers when you read more.
First of all, let me start by saying I'm really sorry if you used any of these cake toppers at your wedding. Maybe I just don't get your humor. Secondly, let me add to that by saying these are some truly tacky cake toppers. From mermice — yes mermaid + mice = mermice! — to fighting couples, I think I can guarantee that you won't find these cake toppers on any 2008 trends list.
Every now and again I will find a product that stops me in my tracks, takes my breath away, or makes me squeal a super-high pitched "I neeeeeeds it!"
Well, these little birdie wedding cake toppers by Ann Wood actually made me do all three. Made from mostly vintage fabrics, trims and laces (including some from old too fragile to wear wedding dresses), these little birds will look absolutely darling on top of your wedding cake. They're handmade, and each set is pretty unique, she even does different variations - the standard bride/groom, as well as bride/bride and groom/groom versions. Each set is absolutely amazing and will look great on just about any wedding cake. However, since they're so unique and personal (she can actually do custom orders incorporating your own fabric and ideas), be prepared to spend a little bit of money on them - the sets start at $240 and top off at $400. But it's your big day and you're worth it, aren't you?
