Who doesn't love sweet strawberries lathered in chocolatey goodness? That's reason enough to top your cake off with them, whether it's white or milk chocolate, you'll have your guests begging for seconds (and thirds). 

2. Vintage Accents

We're loving the vintage details on this cake, especially the clock. Perfect for an old-school wedding style or just a fun detail on any cake. 

3. Nature-Inspired

Tree bark as a final addition to your sweet treat may seem a bit odd, but trust us when we say it's ideal for a rustic or woodland-themed wedding. 

4. Words, Words, Words

Personalize your cake by adding your favorite song lyrics or verses of poetry, or go ultra-romantic and adorn it with inspirational love quotes.

5. Seashells By the Seashore

Nothing says beach wedding like having a piece of the beach so beautifully displayed on your wedding cake. If you're lucky enought to be seaside grab them off your local shoreline, or just have your bakery create edible ones. 

6. Cookie Monsters

If you're mouth is already watering from the mere sight of this chocolatey piece of heaven (ours is), then you should definitely top your cake with America's favorite cookie.

7. Going Green

Show off your outdoorsy side by adorning your cake with greenery, leaves or anything else you can find right in your backyard. 

8. Scrabble Game
