So what should you add as a cake topper on top of a multi-tiered cake? The best option is to have tiny real-looking figurines of the wedding couple. This will give the wedding cake an identity and will make the event memorable for the guests and the couple.
16. ‘Mr. and Mrs.’ text with edible flowers:

The beauty of the cake though will come from the second cake topper. These edible flowers would bring freshness to the event and will make your cake look prettier.
Here ensure that you get the flowers done by a reliable artist as the entire impact of this wedding cake topper idea depends on how realistic the flowers and leaves appear.
