Cut the Cake...

I have to be honest, the wedding cake has never been high on my priority list.  I think fondant looks cool, but tastes pretty terrible.  And I really don't want ribbons or giant flowers on my cake.  It's just not really my style (or my fiancé's!).  Our venue will bake the cake, which is much easier then having to find our own baker.  We decided on a 6-inch chocolate chip pound cake with vanilla buttercream icing.  So we'll have the mini-cake to cut, and then cupcakes for all of our guests!  I mean, who doesn't love a cupcake? Our little cake will be tiny and adorable, but I still think it needs a little something extra.  Enter the personalized cake stand or cake topper! Maybe even both?   So far I'm having a hard time finding a topper.  I like the one below, it's just a pink heart on a stick - but I think it's pretty cute.  And, I'm pretty sure I could DIY it - which is always a plus.

This heart topper is cute too. I could try to sew this, it looks pretty easy.

As for cake stands, this simple white cake stand is pretty and wouldn't take away from the cake.

We could also go with a personalized cake stand - it really would be a pretty keepsake.

Or just this pretty ruffled stand, I'm loving the yellow!

As for toppers, I like these wooden name toppers a lot.

There's also this sweet je t'aime topper with mint green hearts.

This quirky wooden topper could be fun - we could get it customized to look like us.

I also like these mini bunting flag toppers.

 Is getting a cake stand silly?  I don't think we need one, but they sure are pretty!  The baker has a print-out of the first picture as our inspiration - so I hope our cake looks just like that.  We are just under two months away from the wedding now, time is flying!  We are finalizing all the minor details - and I'd love to check this one off the list.  Which topper do you like best?  Did you have a cake stand and topper?  Oh, and what song did you play during the cake cutting?  I'd love to hear your opinions/advice!
