So I am planning a vintage…romantic wedding, our colors are champagne ivory black and touches of a deep red. We have a lot of vintage keys for decor, along with pearls and rhinestones.
I really havent found a cake topper that I liked, so I decided to try my hand at it.
I purchased a wooden letter from a craft store, and rhinestones and pearls, along with these cute black lace buttons. I had some broken vintage jewelry and keys to add as well. First I painted the letter silver and then glued them on with strong craft glue. I only covered the front and outside edge. We will probably drill holes in the bottom of the letter and glue in wires or dowels to place it in cake.
What do you think?

I think it’s really cool. I didn’t have a cake topper at all, so this may be out of left field, but it looks like it might be kind of heavy to put on top of a cake? I’d definitely show it to your baker before the day just to be on the safe side.

i agree with Saphire. Thats the first thing that came to my head when i saw it was “how heavy is that” But its just so unique and beautiful:)

yeah something white and simple with black magic roses in between the layers. maybe just piping details, I’m toying with that idea or another with meringue roses, one I found on martha stewart’s website. these are my inspirations:

I think it looks great! Just make sure to use strong enough wire – I think your idea of dowels would probably be better than wire though!

It actually isn’t very heavy, it looks a lot bigger in the picture, b/c i took it so close I think. and for the weight I think its ok as long as I put it on wires to sink into cake. The glass ones and figurines I have seen in stores are a lot heavier. The wood letter was pretty lightweight to begin with too. I still have to show it to the baker though.
