Serious Cake Topper Idea Help Needed - Page 2

There's a lot of beautiful cakes without toppers, what about just scroll work on top of the cake also?

Oh you guys are so cute and funny....at least someone besides me thinks this is a riot....I married the oldest son. We knew each other for about a year and a year then got married a year after that. He is son number two. It's his "1st official "love" ". They have been dating since since after Christmas- got engaged (with a ring bought on store credit) the Friday before Memorial Day- and are now going to get married in December. They may move it up earlier if he can get leave (Military) sooner. None of us are allowed to be at the Courthouse for their "Ceremony". They want money and no gifts so they can go buy their own stuff when they move out of state to his duty station. She comes from a beer and cheap beer at that family (I did half beer side and half wine side) and she wants the aged to perfection wine from Italy. Neither side of the families are rich enough to support her tastes. But her is the biggest reality check on it all. The two of them stopped talking to each other for a few days because one didn't text message the other one back immediately. Then it rumored around and got to the family that she was pregnant by someone else- so they almost broke-up over that. So I guess what I am saying is....How do I expect to have them decided on a topper, let alone cake if they can't get out of the puppy love stage of infatuation they are still in....I figured up how much it would cost to make this cake of hers.....$450 in supplies for the wedding cake and the groom's cake....take that and times it by us CC crew's famous rule of three...and they are looking at an almost $1500 dollar cake from me and my husband!!??!?!?!?! We are about to explode!!!! Here is my husbands simple manly minded way of thinking on it. "We didn't have much say in our wedding cake. Why should they? An we are going to do it how we can afford it." I can achieve the same look that she wants for about a third or less of that cost. (By the way everyone....our wedding cake- we just told the theme, the colors and my Father actually learned how to make it and did for us icon_smile.gif ) They don't even have a theme for their "Wedding" or should I say reception...It's just the color pink......Yeah this is all crazy....But since you guys were giggling with me, I figured I should fill in some of the gaps so you could get the whole picture on how stupid this all is and how I'm so confused. icon_smile.gif

Whooooooooaaaaaaa........ What a circus! icon_lol.gif It's good there's some humor in it.

Speaking of humor, my oldest niece is getting married in three weeks. They're having a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding. Yes, really. The groom is wearing a suit like the Beast wore in the cartoon where they dance, and the bride is wearing a dress reminiscent of Belle's except it's white. At the reception they're serving - I swear I'm not making this up - plain Twinkies for the groom's cake and chocolate milk!!!!

I would say, if your couple is picking out such a $$$$$$ cake and you are on a budget, in this particular case, cut the corners where you can and don't mention it to the bride. Sounds like she's got other things to worry about (like growing up!) than little details on the cake.

I've seen some really pretty monogram toppers...of course, they aren't really cheap....Maybe you could make one out of Royal Icing....

I totally agree with you!!!! He is home for two weeks right now. They are having this reception/day thing occur on December 22nd. I'm the only one in the family who has all of the right address from doing our wedding. I have told her over and over I would help and that she needs to send out save the date cards NOW so people can come since they are doing it the Friday before Christmas- people aren't going to show!!!! So I may end up doing this huge cake for nobody if she doesn't get her game plan in gear!!! She complains that she doesn't have time....She works less than 30 hours a week- waitressing and isn't very good at. She quit school...I worked full-time and went to school full-time plus, graduated in 3 years instead of 4, and still planned out our wedding, managed our home and bills we started sharing together before the wedding.....The time he is home, we wanted to have them sit down and discuss all of this- we would even pay for dinner.....but now they don't have time....and they aren't even going to come to our party on the 4th (family tradition now that we have the 4th of July party) because they will be too busy!!!!! CRAZY FOLKS!!! CRAZY!!!! ----Can you tell most of us are mad at the whole thing.....ha ha ha ha.....So as far as the topper and cake all together....What do you guys think me and hubby should do?????

Forget the fruit. Sounds like she needs a tiara! Princess in training!

Since the wedding is right before Christmas, what about a big royal icing snowflake? I'm pretty sure I'd be tempted to go and buy a cheapo 'Christmas pik' at Michaels to put up there, maybe something like the little metallic gift boxes.

Since she won't really have a wedding gown or church ceremony, what about making the topper 'something old, something new...'?

She's probably afraid of snow.

I wouldn't worry too much, from the sound of the drama, with any luck it'll get called off! Try to hold off on buying the fountain as long as possible.

The snowflake idea sounds super fun to me...I always thought a winter wedding would be beautiful done in snowflakes ( I did a Luau!!)....but again the pickiness in her is that she doesn't want any of the holiday or theme type things. So that's why they are going with just the color pink. My brother-in-law.....sooooo easy to please (I have no idea why they are even together it is like night and day with them. I haven't even seen them kiss each other yet. Weird I know)....but he is sooooo easy. I asked him what he wanted for his groom's cake (yeah I know not one but two cakes free for them), but at first he saw a picture of cookie monster and laughed and wanted that one. She said no and that it was stupid. I explained that's the whole point. It is suppose to be something that he wants and is kinda funny compared to the elegance of the wedding cake. So then he saw a picture of Kermit the Frog and liked that one. I said okay!! It would be simple and very cute and funny. She rolled her eyes and I just looked at her and said is that okay for you?? Again she rolled her eyes and I just looked at him (who was standing in front of her so he couldn't see the rolling of her eyes) and told him I'll do it for you and you'll love it. He said I'm sure I'd love anything you make.....Are we getting the strangeness of their couplesome???!?!? The something new borrowed and blue thing sounds cool too...I might have to do that on purpose because she hates the color blue...ha ha ha ha

Hi Ya'll,

This is so funny!

I have to add the when my sister got married on a budget, her wedding color was pink. Her father in law bought them a cake--1\\4 sheet--BLUE. She has tried to get a pink wedding cake at every fifth year anniversary, without success. So your blue idea would be funny!

Since she is such a (Princess in training) a run down shack on top(not a castle). It sounds like she is going to bankrupt the family into living in one. This is a gift from your family/household to them, do what you think/can afford for the top. What does the groom have to say about the top of this pink cake?

Back to the fun--A beer can, broken wine/champaine bottle, groom with empty pockets and bride in a rag dress.

Oh this is long enough.

Good luck!

Momsandraven and Adven68, I am laughing so hard!!!! icon_lol.gif No, they're not 6 but seems like it sometimes. Y'know, they actually found Beauty and the Beast wedding invitations. YES! They really did!! I won't be going to the wedding, which is in another state (as my friend says, another STATE of mind! Haha!!) but I am so looking forward to the pictures when I get some.

This phobic bride is quite a puzzle. I'm thinking the groom should get a cake with both Cookie Monster and Kermit on it and the bride can get over it. Hey! What if Cookie Monster was the wedding topper?

Sounds like a reality check is in order for this couple. Do a scoll in royal in blue of course; held up by a beer can. What she really wants is money folded in the shape of a rose.
