Oh those would have been so cute, too! I had a bales-of-hay topper a few months ago. My first time seeing one and thought it was adorable!

Yikes, that seems like a mess, sorry.

For me, I tell my brides I can put a bowling ball up there if they want, but I have to have EVERY topper in my hands by the week of the wedding so that I can put support or whatever in the cake to hold it. Hindsight is 20/20, but you probably could have nabbed a couple of drinking straws or whatever to support it.

Just yesterday I had a quickie wedding where the topper didn't make it to me on time... sure enough I get there and its the (tacky) 6" wide bride dragging the groom... to go on top of the 4" wide cake. Another one for the tables.

I make the bride drop off the topper before the wedding, and its a good thing too, bridzilla just dropped of a 6 inch wide topper to go on top of her 4 inch wide top tier. (sigh) she is going to drive me to drink, this one...

I have never done a wedding cake and probably will never be good enough to do one but I am so glad you vented on this because it really made me laugh not at decorators but at the brides.

They pick the cake, they choose the design they know all about the cake and what it's made of and then their brains desert them!

How easily their brains are distracted by all that glitters! Speaks volumes!

But thanks for highlighting this I would have never really paid much consideration to it before now, my inexperience!

I would probably have said "fine go ahead it's your cake now not mine, stick that bowling ball right on there if you think it's a good idea" icon_lol.gif

I understand, I always tell the bride that I need the topper when they order so that we can work out how it will sit. I had a bride who wanted a huge ceramic castle on top of, you will not belive itl, but cupcakes! Yep, she asked for a cupcake tower with the castle on top. I had to to tell her sorry, but honestly the topper really CANNOT be bigger than the cake. Brides seem to think that toppers just float on the top layer.

I would have thought the castle would be on the top tier of a big structure the cupcakes were also on. Why would it not work, as it isn't directly on the cupcakes? I see cakes on the top of towers all the time.
