10. Big love calls for big heads

It’s impossible to look at bobbleheads without smiling, especially if the bobbling faces look a lot like your own. Why get some generic wedding toppers that vaguely resemble your hair color when customized bobblehead couples are an option? Use them to turn any traditional cake into a funny conversation piece.

9. Life’s like a box of chocolates …

Life’s like a box of chocolates …

…and so are unique wedding cakes. Martha Stewart Weddings featured this simple, but fitting concept. Each tier is frosted white to look like a bakery box of special chocolates, then the edge of each level is lined in mouth-watering treats. The final result looks like a pile of boxed goodies and instantly brings to mind Forrest Gump’s voice assuring that “You never know what you’re gonna get”.

8. For runners

 For runners

Couples who run together stay together. Celebrate the tie that binds with a subtle nod to your activity of choice. Options include classic toppers with a “Start” banner, or go for customized toppers wearing sneakers and race bibs. Either way the message is the same: “We got this.”

7. A place to lay your head

A place to lay your head

Pillow cakes make about as much sense sentencing the single lady who catches the bouquet to marriage, but it’s all in good fun. It’s perfect for the bride who never quite tucked away her princess gowns. Now that she’s found her prince, it’s time to indulge those fantasies.

6. For nature lovers

 For nature lovers

Earth friendly couples are as committed to making the world a greener place as they are to one another. Green icing may not look as appetizing as dark chocolate on first glance, but paired with seasonal blossoms at an outdoor ceremony it makes a sweet impression. The other special idea here is placing the toppers at the base layer. This trick draws eyes from top to bottom so guests appreciate the whole shebang.

5. Zombie time

Zombie time

You may vow till death do you part, but that’s not taking the possibility of zombie apocalypse into account. If you’re like many modern couples, you’ve already mapped an escape plan and started training for the day the dead come knocking. Don’t worry about being morbid. Nothing says “I love you” like a chainsaw and ax.

4. Old skool gamers

Old skool gamers

When two Nintendo wizards meet and fall in love, it’s only natural that they get married and smash some pixilated fire-shooting flowers in each others’ faces. Gamers are all about immersive experiences so it makes sense that the final level up involves joining forces.

3. Something for everyone

Something for everyone

As far as unique wedding cakes go, this is among the more clever designs because it has the element of surprise. Depending on how it’s positioned, half may think it’s a traditional white layer and the other suspect they’re in for a chocolate hangover. Both would be correct and pleasantly surprised.

2. Tide is high

Tide is high

Going on an exotic honeymoon? Set the tone with a surfer-themed tropical cake. Blue icing decorated with edible palm trees and colorful flowers will have everyone swaying to the waves. This fun design embraces the sentiment that marriage is supposed to be an adventure.

1. Super lovers

Super lovers

With any luck, you’ve each found the person who brings out the very best in you. Before you met, you were a two Clark Kents bumbling around. Now that you’re joined, it’s time to show those true colors complete with red capes and tights, or a tasty super hero-themed cake.
