A Zombie Wedding Cake is Ideal
A Haunted House Cake Top? It Can be Done.
Small decorative plastic houses are available at most novelty and department stores or you can have a baker fashion one from icing to set on top of your cake.
The happy soon to be wedded couple can be set standing outside of their blissful home. Your couple can be vampires, witch and warlock, ghouls, zombies, or ghosts.
If they are witches be sure to have matching his and her brooms leaning against the house. Having a small black cat sitting beside the house tends to add a nice homey touch to this touching Halloween wedding cake scene.
Trick or Treat Candy Theme Wedding Cake
Candyland Theme? Halloween is famous for it's tricks, treats, and candy sweets. So what better way to show how wonderful a Halloween wedding can be than with the sweetness of a candy wedding cake topper.
The bride and groom figurines can be displayed as a couple dressed in white or as a pair of young trick or treaters. The candy paradise is easy to create simply add candies, sweets, and other brightly colored treats to the top of your cake.
A candy house, balloons, or fluffy cotton candy trees are a delightful addition to this scene. Be creative, and keep your image lighthearted, and colorful. Keep it sweet!
Cemetery Cake Top? Yes!
There is just naturally something spooky about a graveyard filled with stone colored tombstones that makes a person feel a little creepy.
If creepy is the feeling that you are looking for at your wedding then decorate the top of your cake with little grave mounds and tombstones.
A few desperate bony hands reaching out from the ground tend to add a very nice touch to your graveyard. While a spooky old tree in one corner tends to add just that little extra atmosphere.
In the center of your spooky graveyard there could be two extra large tombstones. The names displayed on these two headstones will of course be the current blissful couple of Mr. and Mrs Whomever and the date of their demise will be the actual blessed wedding date. How very appropriate for the occasion.
A Pumpkin Patch Perhaps?
Pumpkin patches just naturally symbolize Halloween and they are so easy to create on the top of a cake. Whether you are having plastic or icing pumpkins in your patch it is nice to have them fully decked out in delightful Halloween Jack-O-Lantern style.
The two largest Halloween pumpkins on the cake top will be situated snuggled next to each other and of course be decked out in full wedding attire. There should be a top hat on the lucky Mr. Pumpkin and a long trailing train flowing out behind Mrs. Pumpkin.
Your pumpkin patch can also be laid out in a true wedding setting with an aisle for Mr. and Mrs. Pumpkin to stroll up and seating to the sides for the many pumpkin guests to bed down in.
Frankenstein's Laboratory Would be Gruesomely Fabulous
Consider using black icing instead of white and have Frankenstein and his bride at the top of your Halloween wedding cake.
This scene can play out in a number of ways, Frankenstein can be down on one knee proposing to his lady fair or the happy couple can be standing beside each other holding hands.
For a truly ghoulish atmosphere Frankenstein can be shown still in the process of creating his partner as she lays on the top of the operating table He can be standing up helping to put the finishing touches on his bride.
Be sure to have a number of books and bottles haunting the top of your wedding cake to give it a genuine laboratory look.
Skeletons and Bones Are a Great Halloween Cake Topper
Skeletons are a definite yes for a Halloween wedding cake. How delightfully dietary.
You can display a skeleton bride and groom or simply a pile of bones. Having a large pair of ghoulish hands emerging from the top of your wedding cake will also make for a very unique cake topper.
Bony, bloodied, or gnarled this pair of his and her hands should reach out to intertwine with each other. There is nothing says romance quite like a couple reaching out from the grave to hold hands with each other.
