Cake topper?

Our wedding colors are gold and dark red, so we were having trouble finding a store bought cake topper to match what we want. We want a simple monogram, and I found an etsy seller to make it. Now comes the problem. They can be made in sizes ranging from 3-6 inches. I don't think we want a top layer of cake any smaller than 6 inches in diameter. What size should we use?

Also, we cannot pick a font. We want a nice cursive T but nothing too swirly.Silver Monogram Cake Topper-Custom-Silver or Gold A-Z FREE SHIPPING
Any recommendations from these choices?

Re: Cake topper?

  • My name starts with a T and I hate cursive T's because I think they look like J's.  I would ask the seller what they would recommend (that's what I did for our cake topper).

    For fonts I recommend (from personal opinion): Phyllis D, Lucia BT, or Duchess

  • I know how you feel about the T thing, but I've embraced it now that both my first and last names are going to start with it.

    I probably should have mentioned that I'm leaning towards a very plain, lacey looking cake with a single strip of the gold around the middle and a brooch with red stones on the strip in the front.

    Michael's and AC Moore sell monogram cake toppers.  However, they come in silver.  You could just spray paint it gold or whatever color you want.  Just a thought.  Oh, and they're not too swirly either.

  • Curlz is a cute, fun looking font (maybe not appropriate for a wedding though!).  Phyllis D or Harrington also look like they are clearly Ts without being too fancy or too plain.  Good luck!
  • I like phyllis D and duchess. they are not too swirly
  • What Etsy store are you using?  I'm looking for a cake topper and I love the Monterey font!

    They seem pretty reasonable and have a gallery on their personal website. The topper we're looking at is only $14.99.

  • Monterey really is pretty now that I look at it. That and Lucia BT are actually almost how FI writes his T's. I may pick one of those for that reason. Plus, he is obsessed with the song "It happened in Monterey".
