I had real flowers on our cake and they worked out just fine! For our topper, I had our momogra, in crystals, but it did end up gathering dust after the wedding, so I love your idea of keeping it simple!

I was in your same position until I found my cake topper on Etsy. It was a little pricey, but I loved it so much I didn’t care. Plus it matched our engagement photos.

Here it is on my cake. The topper was made out of clay. Not sure how good you are with your hands but theres always clay I suppose!

Fiance and I actually got salt and pepper shakers that are kissing pandas because its our nickname for each other. Most people at our wedding outside of close family probably dont even know this about us, but I like the idea of being able to use them for a practical reason after the wedding (as S and P shakers) or I was thinking of threading some wire through and using as ornaments.

I used ornaments and made them a little more ‘wedding’ by adding a veil and a tophat.
I think it’d be super cute to have a turtle and a frog!! But that’s just me. I love things like that which are personal and meaninful to the couple.

*No, my Darling Husband doesn’t call me penquin and I don’t call him polar bear. Though his daughter LOVES penguins and couldn’t get enough of this cake topper lol. I may gift it to her.

@Lauraine:  There are TONS of wedding cake toppers on Etsy that you could customize with a turtle and frog.

What’s wrong with having real flowers on a cake? Just wondering because I had them on mine. Though not really my decision…

I made my own topper from polymer clay. It’s easier than I thought it would be. There’s a lot of tutorials online and on YouTube.
