Wedding cake toppers are a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding or groom's cake. They can be customized to reflect your personality, interests, and style. There are many different types of wedding cake toppers available, from traditional figurines to modern or whimsical designs.
Here are some ideas for traditional wedding cake toppers:
If you want a romantic and elegant look, you can choose to have flowers as your wedding cake topper Flowers are a classic symbol of love and beauty, and they can add a touch of color and texture to your cake. Flower cake toppers can help tie the cake into the rest of your venue décor because your can ask your florist to provide extra blooms for the cake.

Mariana and Joey had a beautiful wedding at Bethel Rock in Leonard last year. The venue was filled with white flowers which a family member had graciously gifted and arranged for the couple. Roses, and magnolias, and lilies, oh my! When I got home from the delivery I could still smell them all!
After taking a look at the centerpieces, it was time to trim the flowers left for me to arrange on the cake. The textured buttercream was a perfect background for these pretty blooms, and Joey and Mariana decided on a single cascade of flowers that swept across the middle tier of the cake.
On the inside, the top and bottom tiers were Italian Cream cake and the middle tier was Red Velvet cake.
I just love when the cake table is decorated. It helps tie the space in with the rest of the reception décor and gives a cohesive look to the entire venue. Mariana and Joey displayed some subtle art, magnolias and greenery, their cake knife and server and an initial for their last name too. And you can't go wrong with the addition of a coordinating fabric runner and cake stand!

River Road Chateau, one of my favorite venues, is having an open house on Sunday, August 27, 2023 from 2:00-4:00pm.
An Open House is a great way to tour a venue and meet the vendors they love to work with. There may also be giveaways, raffles, or freebies too. I'll be there with cake samples and will have a special discount in the raffle.
River Road Chateau is located on 76 acres in Anna, and features an outdoor ceremony space, a 4000 square foot reception venue, and Belle Manor, a guest house that can also be rented for your day. There are also gardens planned by a Texas Master Gardner and lots of beautiful photo locations.
As if all that wasn't enough, the people at River Road Chateau are what really make the venue stand out. Lori and her team are amazing and truly care about all of their couples!
If you, or someone you know, is planning a wedding, this Open House is the perfect opportunity to get a few check marks on that wedding to-do list.
Did you know August 8 is National Whataburger Day? Last year, Sarah and Jonathan were married the day before this tasty holiday, and their groom's cake was a perfect compliment to both occasions.
Sarah and Jonathan are missionaries, and she wanted surprise him with a personalized groom's cake. She said every time they come back to the states, Jonathan has to make his first stop Whataburger, and as a big Sweet & Spicy Bacon Burger fan, I could completely relate!
I sketched out a cake that looked like the building so we could get an idea of the size. Sarah wanted the more A-frame style instead of the newer boxy looking stores, so that meant a little carving was in order. The height of the roofline was going to vary from about 3.5" at the edge to 6" at the peak with approximately 50 servings of cake.
Once the lemon cake was baked and filled with vanilla buttercream, it was time to get to work carving the cake into the correct shape. I created a template from my sketch dimensions to help get the right silhouette.
Then it was time to crumb coat the cake and add fondant panels to create the walls and striped roof.
Details really make a cake like this come alive, so I added texture to the roof and drive through window covers, plants around the doors, parking blocks, a street sign congratulating the newlyweds, and their wedding date as the opening hours on the door.
Of course there was also a wedding cake! Sarah wanted a naked cake, but instead of all white, she chose to have chocolate for the middle tier. This created visual interest as well as offering an additional flavor to their guests. The top and bottom tiers of the wedding cake were white chocolate with almond buttercream, and the middle was chocolate fudge with chocolate buttercream.
Congratulations to Sarah and Jonathan on their anniversary!
