A Wedding Cake can be an enormous multi-tiered Cake or a big slab cake. Modern pastry chefs and cake designers use various ingredients and tools to create a cake that usually reflects the personalities of the couple.

Many flavors and configurations are available in addition to the traditional all-white tiered cake.  Marzipan, fondant, gum paste, butter cream and chocolate are among the popular ingredients used. Prices can range from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars per-person or slice, depending on the pastry chef who is hired to make the cake.

Wedding Cake Toppers are models or art pieces that sit atop the cake. The most common type of cake topper features a representation of a bride and groom in wedding attire. This custom was dominant in US weddings in the 1950s, where it represented togetherness. Wedding toppers today are often figures that indicate shared hobbies or other passions, if they are used at all. Some are humorous, or may represent the couple’s hobby or occupation. Some couples use a piece of art which will be displayed in their home later, such as a statuette or Christmas ornament. Some couples skip the topper altogether or decorate the top tier with flowers.
