Wedding cake jewelry is the latest trend in cake decorating and presentation. Often produced as a cake topper, the cake jewelry comes in about every style and finish imaginable! Wedding cakes might carry an ornamental topper in such eye-catching choices as starburst medallions, crystal flowers, wandering vines, whimsical bows, lilies, hearts with glittering sprays, rhinestone coaches, photo frames, lace, twinkling crystal, whimsical scrolls, wedding bells, butterflies, spheres, and even cake tiaras! The choices are stunning and guests will be mesmerized by this new fad.
Some couples prefer to adorn each guest table with its own smaller wedding cake. Presented like a centerpiece, each small cake can be decorated with its own specific piece of cake jewelry. One lucky guest from each table can keep the decoration as a wedding keepsake. Another variation on this theme is to place a tiny individual cake at each place setting. With wedding cake jewelry in place, you have given each guest dessert and a wedding favor!
Monogram wedding cake jewelry adds that personal touch to this ever popular theme. With a variety of colors available, one can purchase a single letter, perhaps reflecting a shared last name, or one can purchase a group of letters to spell out small messages or names. The monogram letters are available in different sizes and trendy fonts so they can blend nicely with cakes of all shapes and styles.
Another variation within the wedding cake jewelry category is that of cake charms and ribbon pulls. The age old tradition of cake charms is believed to have started in Victorian England when brides hid charms of fortune beneath the layers of their cakes. Only the ribbons on which the charms were attached remained seen after the charms were buried. Special guests would pull the ribbons, receive their charms and discover their fortune. This fun and festive ritual has been incorporated into modern day weddings and is quite a crowd pleaser. Charms can be made of traditional silver or gold to reflect special wedding themes. They may also be fortune-related. Some brides give chain bracelets to members of their bridal party so that they can attach their special charms and wear them after they have been pulled.
Wedding cake jewelry runs the gamut when it comes to pricing. One can purchase a dramatic and beautiful cake topper at a low price, or choose to special order an authentic gold topper with real gemstones!
There are so many types of cake charms and jewelry available through wedding suppliers, specialty bakeries, and Internet vendors. They can even be specially ordered to match custom cake colors. Your cake jewelry may be dramatic, whimsical, traditional, musical, or just artistic! And in a world that loves jewelry, why not let your cake in on the fun?
