Focus on the Top

A nice wedding cake is just as essential part of a perfect wedding as any other element. In an earlier article I focused on an amazing patisserie in the heart of Rotterdam where you can order all sort of tastes and designs. However, I haven’t highlighted the importance of a cake topper.

In this article the spotlight is on this tiny addition on the cake which actually can have a huge impact. Every couple is different and every cake topper has a different meaning. The pool of ideas is endless but here you can read and see some examples.

Less is more

As a first category let’s start with simplicity. We often hear the expression less is more and it seems to be true in many cases. Lovers of simple and easy solutions can choose from not having any cake toppers to having fruits or other elements that catches their attention. How about puzzle pieces which also brings a smile to everyone.
