There's No Topping These Cake Topper Faux Pas

La Mirada, Canada (PressExposure) July 17, 2009 -- Short of the wedding dress and any other worn bridal accessories, the wedding cake topper is one wedding reception accessory that gets more scrutiny and attention from the bride than any of the evening’s other decorations. Cake toppers not only help add to the event’s elaborately planned theme, they can also help establish the happy couple’s new joint personality. And in many cases, they say plenty.

The everything-weddings website – in addition to featuring a product line that offers brides-to-be nearly any wedding supplies they’ll need – is showcasing a top 10 list of toppers that reveal much about the couple who selected, and in some cases created, them. From the miniature deer head that juts from the top of a camouflage-iced cake, to the Mr. Bill-looking figurines sitting on zebra-skin sheets while the groom fondles the bride’s bare breast, cake tops can tell a story. And not always a pretty one.

The website’s list of “stupidest wedding cake toppers” includes a few that defy reason, like the skeleton groom carrying the skeleton bride as the two French kiss while standing over a tombstone. And there’s the masculine-looking “liberated bride” holding the petrified-looking groom. They almost look as if the groomsmen pulled a prank over on their friend.

And while browsing for a more traditional cake topper, don’t miss the rest of the top 10 list. One image shows a Baltimore Ravens fan’s attempt to pay homage to his team by having a taxidermist stuff and mount two black ravens, then perch them (one with a black top hat, the other with a white veil) over a football and on top of a cake.

The funniest topper of the lot might be one couple’s attempt to turn an entire four-layer cake into what looks like a collapsing building. As the bride and groom teeter on the tilted top layer, a handful of others in black tuxedos (groomsmen?) are busy at work on the lower layers, cutting pillars, spraying bullets, and causing the cake to tumble. There’s even a small model plane broken and driven into the lower layer, adding to the destruction. It’s a strange symbol of two people starting a life together. Hopefully, it in no way foreshadows what’s to come.
