Incorporate a metal finish to your wedding cake! One thing to keep in mind when shopping for a cake topper is to adhere to the look and feel of the cake. The first cake topper pictured above is a little messy and rough, in keeping with the rustic wood platter and imperfect icing of the cake. I think it looks fantastic. Similarly, a delicate and pretty cake (as picture below) deserves a cake topper design that enhances and matches the overall look and feel.  The metal cursive writing works perfectly!
